Reporter Beth Wright suspects something very ugly at the St. Clair Children’s Home. But someone wants to make sure Beth’s story never gets to press. Between Beth and that someone stands Nick Hutchins, a social worker. Nick finds his own suspicions about the home being 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 forced into lives of crime. Only one person holds the key that can save them: Beth herself. But using that key could cost Beth her reputation…or even her life.
