It was just one night. But it was a night that would destroy everything. Judge Juliana Brody is a woman with principles. She is happily married, she doesn't drink, she doesn't lose control. She definitely doesn't sleep with a handsome stranger at a law convention. Except that, last night, that is exactly what she did. Matias understands that if anyone found out about their one-night stand, it would destroy Juliana's marriage and, most likely, her career. They agree that they will never see each other again. And then, a week later, he walks into her courtroom. Julia knew that her latest brief, a high-profile sex discrimination case, would make her some powerful enemies. But she didn't expect her own life, and the lives of her family, to be put in mortal danger... 'Gripping, trenchant and human. One of the best novels I've read this year' Stav Sherez. 'Stunning ... I cannot remember when I last read a book so gripping and so satisfying' Peter James. 'A masterclass in tension, with complex characters and a twisty plot' J.P. Delaney.
