As a public defender, Caitlin McLoughlin dreams of someday locking the bad guys in prison instead of defending them. But prosecuting jobs are scarce, and Caitlin s future seems bleak.
When her current client is about to walk away from a brutal crime, she risks her career to make sure he doesn t hurt anyone else. But how far is she is willing to go especially when she needs her job so she can continue caring for her mentally disabled sister?
Then Caitlin meets Parker Hathaway, charged with kidnapping a four- year- old child. Just another criminal, just another job, Caitlin thinks. But when she learns the real story, she realizes that she must put everything on the line to defend her client and save the little girl before it s too late. Saving Madeline is the story of a man determined to protect a child he loves, and the woman who dared to trust him. (Publisher website)
