When a serial killer leaves a string of victims with political ties, it sends Texas Ranger Faith McClellan into a desperate race to save lives—even the ones she’s not sure deserve saving.
While on special assignment to the bank fraud unit, Faith accidentally stumbles upon a raging fire consuming the back of a nearby house. When partially cremated remains are pulled from the ruins, she finds herself back on homicide—and on the trail of a ruthless killer.
As she races to identify the victims, the sadistic murderer strikes again, this time against state politicians with ties to Faith’s father, a former governor of Texas. Faith is forced to face shocking and long-buried family secrets as she questions her confidence in the justice system and those she thinks she knows best.
Soon, Faith and her colleagues realize they are hunting a killer with a personal vendetta, whose ferocious methods of murder are punishment for unimaginable sins of the past.
Everyone is a suspect. The pressure is on. Now Faith must piece together clues from the ashes—before her whole life goes up in flames.
