Two Bridges. Two Crashes. 

When Mary Branson witnesses a car hurtle off the Golden Gate Bridge in the fall of 1998, little does she realize that, twenty years later, she'll find herself revisiting the haunting details of that crash. But when a woman's body is found floating along the dark shore of Chesapeake Bay, Mary tasks herself with unraveling the truth behind both deaths. 

Not everyone wants Mary to uncover the truth, let alone publish a novel based on the secrets she exposes. With ominous forces working to silence her, Mary turns to her law enforcement husband and a street-savvy private investigator for help. Can she stay alive long enough to finish her story?
