|From The Publisher*||A moment on the subway platform changes two women's lives forever-a debut thriller that will take your breath away.|
A total stranger on the subway platform whispers, "Take my baby."
She places her child in your arms. She says your name.
Then she jumps...
In a split second, Morgan Kincaid's life changes forever. She's on her way home from work when a mother begs her to take her baby, then places the infant in her arms. Before Morgan can stop her, the distraught mother jumps in front of an oncoming train.
Morgan has never seen this woman before, and she can't understand what would cause a person to give away her child and take her own life. She also can't understand how this woman knew her name.
The police take Morgan in for questioning. She soon learns that the woman who jumped was Nicole Markham, prominent CEO of the athletic brand Breathe. She also learns that no witness can corroborate her version of events, which means she's just become a murder suspect.
To prove her innocence, Morgan frantically retraces the last days of Nicole's life. Was Nicole a new mother struggling with paranoia or was she in danger? When strange things start happening to Morgan, she suddenly realizes she might be in danger, too.
Woman on the Edge is a pulse-pounding, propulsive thriller about the lengths to which a woman will go to protect her baby-even if that means sacrificing her own life.
