A tale of two sisters in danger—and the New Orleans detective trying to protect them—from a USA Today–bestselling “master of romantic suspense” (Booklist).
Frantic to escape her paranoid, violent husband—a Louisiana senator—Holly Ames takes her young son and flees into the dead of night. Four weeks later, prosecutor-turned-defense-attorney Meredith Rawson’s dying mother makes a shocking confession.
Now Meredith is on a journey to fulfill her mother’s last wish that she find the half sister she never knew: Holly Ames. But before she can begin her search, her home is ransacked and her life threatened . . .
Haunted by his dark past, all New Orleans PD homicide detective Gage Gaynor wants is to put predators away and clean up a city riddled with crime. The hunt for a killer will bring him to Meredith’s door and into the middle of a world of privilege and corruption where the ties that bind can be the most lethal of all.
