Julias stories relentlessly linked the girls boyfriend, Josh Harrison, to the crime--up to the day that the basketball star shot himself in the head.Twenty years later, Julia, now a Seattle journalism professor and syndicated columnist, comes back to Fairbanks on a sabbatical just in time to hear about a serial killers confession to the long-ago slaying. With Josh exonerated, Julia is haunted by whether her stories pushed him to end his life--and when a stalker begins to make attempts on her life, the stakes grow even higher. Suspects and motives abound: Julias enraged a pro-life group with a recent column- shes drawn a jealous womans wrath- shes unintentionally drawn the attention of a demented homeless person- and theres always the possibility that someone from her past has come to collect vengeance for Joshs death.While Julia dodges danger, she pursues love and red-hot passion with R.L., a local business owner who carries his own guilt for Joshs death. The longer she stays in Fairbanks, the more things escalate--until they come to a head in a final, fiery showdown.
