In the biggest case of her career, attorney Kate Sullivan is tapped as lead counsel to take on Mason Pharmaceutical because of a corporate cover-up related to its newest drug. After a whistleblower dies, Kate knows the stakes are much higher than her other lawsuits.
Former Army Ranger turned private investigator Landon James is still haunted by mistakes made while serving overseas. Trying to forget the past, he is hired by Kate to look into the whistleblower's allegation and soon suspects that the company may be engaging in a dangerous game for profit. He also soon finds himself falling for this passionate and earnest young lawyer.
Determined not to make the same mistakes, he's intent on keeping Kate safe, but as the case deepens, it appears someone is willing to risk everything--even murder--to keep the case from going to trial.

Rachel Dylan, a new to me author, took me through the lengthy legal process of a corporate cover-up that involved a pharmaceutical company.
Kate Sullivan has become the lead counsel for a case against a large pharmaceutical company. In what is believed to be a corporate cover up that lead to the death of individuals taking one of the company’s drugs, things take a turn for the worse as the whistleblower dies.
This case is big for Kate as she is taking on a huge corporation. As the story progresses, the stakes get higher and the reader gets more involved in the legal process.
There were aspects of this story that I liked, particularly the overall premise of a large corporate cover-up. It was interesting seeing how far they were willing to go to hide their mistake.
While the author seemed to have a good understanding of the legal process (I’m not a lawyer, but the story was believable) I feel the process moved slowly at times. That said, it was interesting following Kate through this process and the mock trials.
Overall this was an interesting read. The storyline was interesting, although it didn’t keep me glued to the pages as much as I had hoped. I felt like I was on the journey with Kate.
