Everything to Lose

When the daughter of San Francisco socialites Gavin and Sondra Borden is brutally assaulted, Jamie Vail makes it her mission to find the attacker. A seasoned Sex Crimes Inspector with the SFPD, work is what Jamie does best. She isn’t distracted by the fact that her adopted son and the victim go to the same school.

Jamie can almost set aside that the man caught on tape with the victim is a man she’s been wary of for years, her son's biological father. At home, her son is performing poorly in school, becoming more reclusive, and nothing she does can draw him out. Every piece of evidence seems to bring her closer to home.

Desperate to be wrong, Jamie must dig deep before her son lands behind bars, or worse.

My two-bits:

I am starting this series at book 5 which works as a standalone. I think if you read the previous you will have the background knowledge of characters in the Rookie club, but not essential.

This story shows a variety of aspects that surround an assault case through the eyes of different people involved with investigation including the bad guy.

The investigation hits close to home for the main character, Jamie, as she has to figure out why and how her adopted son is connected which creates great curiousity throughout the story.

Loved the San Francisco site references.

About Danielle Girard:
As one of four children, Danielle Girard grew up in a house where the person with the best story got heard, and it's probably no surprise that fast-paced suspense stories have always been her favorite.
