Falling Off Air
"Former television journalist Robin Ballantyne is getting her life back together as she struggles to raise twin babies on her own. After a year of motherhood, she feels disillusioned, a little distant from old friends, and wary of both men and love. Unwilling to trust anyone with her feelings, she focuses on her babies and basic survival, living day-to-day in her London town house, and finalizing plans to return to her TV career." "Then everything changes. One evening, as she puts the twins to bed, Robin sees a woman falling past her window. Rushing outside to the crumpled body on the sidewalk, she summons help, little suspecting how this woman's death will affect her own future." "To Finney, the world-weary detective investigating the case, Robin insists she is just an innocent bystander and doesn't know the victim. Finding evidence that links the deceased to Robin, Finney doesn't believe her story in the least. And as the tough cop begins to suspect that the lethal fall from the sky wasn't an accident, Robin finds she desperately wants him to believe her and is unexpectedly drawn to him." "Caught in the media circus erupting around the case, Robin's life careens out of control. She doesn't understand who or what is driving the events that threaten her emotional stability, her hopes to go back to work, and even her children's safety. The mystery surrounding the tragedy deepens when, like a woman trapped in a dream, she encounters people from her past and finds eerie connections between the dead woman's life and her own. Even as everything falls apart, Robin is determined to fight for her life. And when another violent death strikes close to home, Robin begins to understand that this nightmare isn't going to end. It's just beginning."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
