"Former Super Bowl MVP quarterback Zach Bridger hasn't seen his ex-wife, Rebecca Pratt, for years--not since their volatile marriage imploded--so he's shocked to receive a life-altering call about her. Rebecca has been placed on life support after a violent assault, and he--despite their divorce--has medical power-of-attorney. Zach is asked to make an impossible choice: keep her on life support or take her off of it. Buckling under the weight of the responsibility and the glare of public scrutiny, Zach ultimately walks away, letting Rebecca's parents have the final say. Four years later, Rebecca's attacker, Eban--the scion of a wealthy North Carolina family--gets an early release from prison. The ludicrous miscarriage of justice reeks of favoritism, and Kate Lennon, a brilliant state prosecutor, is determined to bring him to justice. Rebecca's parents have kept her alive all these years, but if her condition were to change--if she were to die--Eban could be retried on a new charge: murder. Kate's mission to send Eban back to prison for good depends wholly on Zach. It isn't lost on him that in order for Eban to be charged with Rebecca's murder, Zach must actually be the one to kill her. He rejects Kate's legal standpoint, but can't resist their ill-timed attraction to each other. Eban, having realized the jeopardy he's in, plots to make certain that neither Zach nor Kate lives to see the death of Rebecca--and the end of his freedom" -- Provided by publisher.

In her latest thriller, Brown tackles a subject that's sure to be a hot-button issue for many of her readers. Zach Bridger, a former NFL star whose career collapsed, hasn't been married for the past five years. But his ex-wife, Rebecca, never changed her legal documents, which means that after Rebecca is put in a coma following a vicious attack, Zach must decide whether to keep her alive or remove her from life support. Until now he's kept her alive, out of respect for her family, but Zach has just learned that her attacker has been released from prison, and that changes everything. To put the man back behind bars, the authorities need to file a murder charge, and the only way to do that is for Zach to take Rebecca off life support. Brown has constructed a suspenseful story around a meaty premise, but the highlight here is her presentation of Zach's struggle: Can he justify sentencing his ex-wife to death in the pursuit of the man who destroyed her life? A smart, thoughtful novel. Copyright 2022 Booklist Reviews.
