When Julie Quinley wakes up after a night out with friends to find herself accused of murder, it proves to be only the beginning of her worst nightmare. Released by the police due to lack of evidence, Julie nevertheless faces the taunts and hostility of colleagues, as more and more people – including members of her own family –seem convinced she is a cold-hearted killer. Just when it seems as if all hope has gone, and Julie’s mental state reaches rock bottom, her friend Vinny announces a breakthrough; something he has witnessed that could prove Julie’s innocence once and for all. But the police remain unconvinced, and Julie and her friends find themselves having to take bigger and bigger risks to collect the evidence they need to nail the culprit. Will they be in time to save an innocent woman from being convicted of a crime says she didn’t commit? Or will a ruthless killer get away with murder?
