A New York Times Bestselling Author
A Jack Swyteck Novel
Julia Rodriguez and her teenage daughter Beatriz escaped bloodthirsty gangs, random violence and, Julia’s abusive husband back in El Salvador. Arriving in Miami, mother and daughter struggled to carve their own piece of the American dream. While life in the States is hard, it is safer, until Julia’s rejects her boss’s unwanted sexual advances. Suddenly — thanks to an “anonymous” tip to U. S. immigration authorities — she is arrested, locked in detention with criminals, and slated for deportation. Attorney Jack Swyteck’s only viable legal move to save her is asylum — a long shot that’s become nearly impossible in today’s charged political climate. When Julia and Beatriz made the perilous trek north to freedom, they thought they’d left the danger behind them. But now, even Miami isn’t safe. A ruthless enemy may have tracked them to south Florida and is biding time, patiently waiting to strike. In a case where the stakes have never been higher, Jack may not be able to save his client — even if he wins.
