After being the Philadelphia police force's most popular investigative reporter, Kelly Robolo becomes known as "Typhoid Kelly." During a Chinatown shakedown, Kelly, who was shot, inadvertently caused the death of an underground cop. The cops harass her with undeserved tickets and graffiti at her home. Kelly's best friend Victoria Bowman asks her to look into the disappearance of her faithful, adoring spouse Jonathan. Reluctantly, while still recovering, Kelly agrees. She tries to enlist the aid of police detective Nick McBride, but he rips her head off, still blaming her for the death of his partner. As the evidence piles up that Jonathan had a mistress in Miami, Nick sees a strong link to the homicide of his father last year. Nick joins forces with Kelly not knowing where their attraction for one another will go or where the investigation will lead. BLIND FAITH is a powerful suspense thriller. The story line is fast-paced, requiring a one-sitting read, as the audience will want to know what really happened. Kelly is a great heroine who readers will admire. Although Nick's change of heart occurs due to his learning that his partner was dirty, his ease of accepting Kelly seems too simple. Still, as a team, they are dynamic. Christiane Heggan shows why she is so popular with fans with this taut investigative thriller.

But when she gets a frantic call from an old friend, she embarks on an investigation that will put her to a test she's never faced before: survival.

But the question is why? Philadelphia cop Nick McBride suspects the same thing, and believes there's a connection between the death of his own father-also a former employee of the casino-and Jonathan's disappearance. Reluctantly Kelly and Nick start to work together. But their suspicions are about to lure them into a desperate, dangerous game where blind faith leads straight into terror...and into the trap of a waiting killer.
