#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR SANDRA BROWN IS BACK WITH A SPINE-TINGLING STORY OF MURDER AND BETRAYAL -- AND A HOMICIDE DETECTIVES STRUGGLE WITH HIS OWN RULES OF CONDUCT. When Detective Sergeant Duncan Hatcher is summoned to the home of Judge Cato Laird in the middle of the night to investigate a fatal shooting, he knows that discretion and kid-glove treatment are the keys to staying in the judges good graces and keeping his job. At first glance, the case appears open-and-shut: Elise, the judges trophy wife, interrupted a burglary in progress and killed the intruder in self-defense. But Duncan is immediately suspicious of Elises innocent act. His gut feeling is that her account of the shooting is only partially true -- and its the parts shes leaving out that bother him. Determined to learn the dead mans connection to the Lairds and get at the truth, Duncan investigates further and quickly finds his career, as well as his integrity, in jeopardy -- because he cant deny his increasing attraction to Elise Laird, even if she is a married woman, a proven liar, and a murder suspect. When Elise seeks Duncan out privately and makes an incredible allegation, he initially dismisses it as the manipulative lie of a guilty woman. But what if shes telling the truth? Then that single fatal gunshot at her home takes on even more sinister significance, possibly involving Duncans nemesis, the brutal crime lord Robert Savich. And then Elise goes missing . . . Ricochets plot twists -- as only Sandra Brown can write them -- and palpable suspense combine to create this gripping thriller, in which a decent cops worst enemy may be his own conscience, and trusting thewrong person could mean the difference between life and death.
