Who is on THE MURDER LIST?

Law student Rachel North will tell you, without hesitation, what she knows to be true. She's smart, she's a hard worker, she does the right things. She's successfully married to a faithful and devoted husband, a lion of Boston's defense bar. She's a rising-star intern in the prosecutor's office. Problem is—she's wrong. And if she takes one false step in this cat-and-mouse game, the battle for justice will become a battle for survival.

(Who is the woman on the cover? She will change everyone's lives.)
