He’s a cop trying to stop a serial bomber. And she’ll stop at nothing to clear her own name.
When a deadly bomb goes off during a climate change debate, librarian and event coordinator Jackie Santoro becomes the prime suspect. Her motive, according to Detective Avery Wick: to avenge the suicide of her prominent father, who was accused of crimes by a city councilman attending the event.
Though Avery has doubts about Jackie’s guilt, he can’t exonerate her even after an extremist group takes responsibility for the bombing and continues to attack San Antonio’s treasured public spaces.
As Jackie tries to hold her shattered family together, she has no choice but to proceed with plans for the Caterina Ball, the library system’s biggest annual fundraiser. But she also fears the event provides the perfect opportunity for the bomber to strike again.
Despite their mistrust, Jackie and Avery join forces to unmask the truth—before the death toll mounts even higher.

We have a young woman Jackie Santoro who work at the San Antonio Central Library, and among other duties is an event planner. Which is what she is doing as the book opens with a blast, yes, a bomb goes off and among the casualties is a life long friend and then she becomes a suspect.
Then we meet Detective Avery Wick, and he is doing his job as he investigates Jackie, but with the twist and turns here, she begins to look more guilty.
The lengths some people go for hate, and the people they hurt, and I didn't figure out whom was responsible until the very end, even then it was hard to believe.
