Someone from her past had retuned with deadly intent. Abbie DiAngelo finally has the life she's always wanted. She has gotten past her divorce and cherishes her eight-year old son, Ben. Her restaurant is making money and she is being heralded as the hot new chef.
Then her stepbrother reenters her life. Straight out of prison, Ian MacGregor shows up at Abbie's door claiming to have proof that implicates her mother in a twenty-five-year-old murder. Proof Ian will keep to himself . . . if Abbie pays for his silence. But when she arrives to pay Ian off, she finds his murdered body.
Homicide detective John Ryan quickly realizes there is more to the murder of ex-con Ian MacGregor than he originally thought. And no one, especially Abbie, is telling him the truth. But Abbie has no choice -- she must trust him. Because someone desperate is acting with deadly intent.
