By Heléne Holmström

A crime, a first love and an unforgivable betrayal.
Johannes Lund has left his hometown and broken childhood behind him for a successful career as a defense lawyer. One day he receives a call from the woman he’s never been able to completely forget.
Parisa Tagavi wants him to represent her in the fight of her life. She’s dedicated her whole life to researching female diseases and has won much praise for her work. But now she’s suspected of embezzling investors of millions of euros, and she is desperate.
Everything she’s created is at risk of falling and the only person she can trust is Johannes. In spite of the dark betrayal that once tore them apart, the passion that was there when they were younger is awakening again  – and a relationship between a lawyer and a client is strictly forbidden.
Will Johannes give up everything he’s worked so hard for, for the woman he’s always loved?
