Emily had just started a new job as auditor of a law firm--Jacob & Jacob, Inc. She was hired practically before the Interview began. Both men—brothers-- thought that with her appearance and comprehensive background, they need not look any further.

It was March 2008 and she had just finished a hard but fulfilling day of work at Jacob & Jacob.

She was especially happy because she was meeting Jack for dinner at their favorite Eatery,”The Robin’s Nest.”
But, Emily wouldn’t make it to The Robin’s Nest, for someone was tracking and planning her death.
She was just five miles from The Robin’s Nest when someone behind her pulled up close and pushed hard on her bumper. The force was so sudden and unexpected that Emily almost lost control of the car.
Then, another shove from behind, this one with much more force. It only took a couple of seconds and she sailed deep into a ravine, spinning out of control--until there was nothing but darkness.
Emily died instantly and the person in the other car smiled a Cheshire cat smile and sped away; without a bruise, without a conscience.
Emily’s thoughts earlier that day were filled with hope and promise; but within seconds everything that she had hoped and prayed for, gone!
As evening approached, the person who killed Emily pulled into their garage; totally unaware that today would be their last day on earth, too.
Retribution? And, from someone they loved and trusted.....
