Your Move

Claire Martel learned long ago that even people close to you can’t be trusted. She’s built a comfortable life for herself while keeping everyone at a distance. When she comes home one day and realizes that someone has been in her apartment, she knows that she is no longer safe and that her deepest secret has been discovered. Nothing is missing, but the message is clear. Who would believe her? Who can she trust?

Feeling the walls closing in, Claire finds herself in the middle of a murder investigation as a person of interest. Her home is no longer safe. Her best option is to disappear—again. She leaves her life behind, only to wind up running into danger, not away from it. Claire must push through her fears and find strength within herself as she ends up in a battle for her life.
