When a brutal prison guard kills a young Native American inmate, the crime is witnessed by Lucille Ellwine, a middle-aged, biracial corrections officer. A corrupt prison warden covers up the murder and discredits Lucille, the only witness, by creating deep fake video that tells an entirely different story. In the false alternate reality, Lucille and the much younger inmate are lovers, and she helps him escape.
The video goes viral on social media and every cop in Montana is gunning for her.
Lucille begs for help from investigator Tawny Lindholm and her high-powered attorney husband Tillman Rosenbaum. Lucille’s claims sound outrageous but Tawny recognizes her fear isn’t imagined. Then Lucille disappears.
To save her, Tawny and Tillman are plunged into a sinister world of deep fakes where they learn video might be illusion, but death is real.
Torn from the headlines, this timely psychological thriller carries the reader on a dark journey of illusion where you can’t trust your own eyes.
