NEW from New York Times bestselling author CJ Lyons: Heartless killer…or helpless victim? It’s perfectly normal to be a little shaky on your first day back to work. Especially if you’re Morgan Ames, returning to work after killing her serial killer father, waking up from a coma, fighting back through rehab…and, with the help of her boyfriend, keeping her vow never to kill again. Except when Morgan walks into the Galloway and Stone offices, she finds her boss holding a bomb. Definitely no time for the shakes as Morgan jumps right back into her old life and saves the day.
