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. Although she was charged and served out her sentence in prison, she is still living ‘under suspicion.’ Her story attracts the attention of Laurie Moran and the Under Suspicion news team – it’s Casey’s last chance to finally clear her name, and Laurie pledges to exonerate her. 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.
