When a desperate midnight call from the juvenile detention Center’s Chief Jeff Deputy Felipe “Fee Lo” Hernandez, rouses the tenacious attorney Alexandra “Shadow” McLoud, the stage is set for a gripping drama that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Young Phoebe Sunshine MacPhearson, granddaughter of the powerful local commissioner, finds herself in an unthinkable situation after a betrayal leads to a shocking act of violence. With a district judge ready for a swift arraignment and a community in uproar, Shadow must navigate a web of power, politics, and passion. Detention is a riveting exploration of justice, loyalty, and the links we go to to protect the ones we love. Discover a story where every turn reveals deeper secrets, and the line between right and wrong blurs.
