Beth Wright, a newspaper reporter, is
hot on the trail of a story that could expose something very ugly at the
St. Clair Children’s Home.

Someone else is hot on Beth Wright’s
trail — someone who wants to make sure her story never sees the press.
Between them stands Nick Hutchins, a social worker who finds his own gut
hunches about the children’s home increasingly confirmed, first by
Beth’s investigation … then by a high-speed attempt on her life … and finally, by an intruder’s startling confession. As the drama
unfolds, a horrifying picture emerges of helpless children under the
sway of a modern-day Fagin. Just one person holds the key that can save
them: Beth herself. But using that key could cost Beth her reputation … if it doesn’t first cost her life.
