A stunning new novel of chilling suspense and explosive chemistry from New York Times bestselling author JoAnn Ross.
Chicago homicide detective Kate Delaney is infuriated by the New Orleans police department's blasé attitude toward her estranged sister's death. But pursuing an investigation in a strange city means allying with someone who knows the territory. And the players. Someone with a total disregard for the rules. Someone like former cop turned P.I. Nick Broussard. He takes one look at Kate and sees trouble and tangled sheets. Nick and Kate’s chase pits them against the criminal underworld of the sultry southern city. And as they peel away layers of deadly deception, they discover a dark secret too many are willing to kill to keep.
