5 weeks later, Katy is located brutally murdered of their shared domestic, and Lily is the leading suspect. yet who's Lily Hayes? It is determined by who’s asking. because the case takes shape—revealing deceptions, secrets and techniques, and suspicious DNA—Lily seems alternately sinister and guileless in the course of the eyes of these round her: the media, her relations, the guy who loves her and the fellow who seeks her conviction.
