Claire knew was only a matter of time before one of her cases would come back to haunt her. Revenge knew where she lived. But he made a mistake. He should have killed her then. Now it was her turn! As an investigative reporter, Claire had covered every kind of degenerate out there, exposing them for the scum that they were. No one was immune once she sunk her teeth into them. But now revenge had come calling, and it knew where she lived. But, push Claire into a corner and she'll come out fighting, and soon the hunter would once again become the hunted. Except that the pit was even deeper than she'd realized, and soon she and others would be pulled into something much bigger than they could ever have imagined. And as surely as the pot had been stirred, memories long since buried would rise to the surface, and relationships would be tested as never before. This was a game of survival, and not all would be so fortunate. And if a few lines had to be crossed? So what!
