In Blunt Impact Theresa is caught in the knot of unlikely and conflicting human beings surrounding a tough but endangered little girl named Anna, better known as Ghost.
Ghost has a unique lifestyle, loved by her construction worker mother and disabled grandmother but constantly slipping out of her home to roam the back alleys of the large city. Nothing all that bad ever happens—until she witnesses her mother’s murder, as the beautiful young woman is thrown from the unfinished 23rd floor. Ghost will not rest until she learns the truth, which means that Theresa cannot rest until Ghost is safe.
The building itself is in turmoil, torn by controversy over its purpose as a new county jail. Add in OSHA whistleblowers and missing money, criminal elements using the site for their own purposes and a homely but smart district attorney who becomes more interested in Theresa than the intrigue, and Theresa has no choice but to hang on tight as she dangles over the abyss.
