Casey Carter was convicted of murdering her fiancé – famed philanthropist Hunter Raleigh III – fifteen years ago. And Casey claims – has always claimed – she’s innocent.

An egomaniacal new boss, a relentless gossip columnist who seems to have all the dirt (and a surprising informant), and Casey’s longstanding bad reputation: Laurie must face this and more to do what she believes is right, to once and for all prove Casey’s innocence – that is, if she’s innocent…The Sleeping Beauty Killer will keep you guessing until the very end.
