Blood ties can never be broken--except by murder...

Ex-cop Hannah Barlow, now a lawyer, has just joined a new firm--working with her former law school study partner, Bobby Terry. Their first case is to finalize an adoption. It's supposed to be a formality--but when a man bursts into their office, claiming to be the baby's biological father and demanding his child back, Hannah and Bobby must take a closer look at the case.

What they find is an elaborate web of deceit. The child's birth mother seems to be lying about everything--her marital status, the baby's father...even her own name. The man who insists he is the child's father has a shady past that he hasn't completely escaped. Meanwhile, the adoptive couple grows more desperate to keep their new baby--no matter what it takes. And when two people involved in the case die suddenly, Hannah delves deeper into the mystery--and finds that the lies are just beginning...
