Long Way Home

Detective Andie Stuart is dispatched to review and sign off on the accidental death of socialite Hope Philbrick only to find the promised eyewitnesses don’t exist and the accident scene has been mishandled, but when Andie discovers a strange connection to her own past, she defies department pressure and investigates, risking her job, her family and even her life, not only to crack the case, but to finally put her demons to rest.
