A man of integrity with a soul of steel, pursuing honor and justice is as natural as breathing in Marc Brannon's line of work.
Called to the scene of a high-profile murder, Brannon finds himself pitted against the vibrant, and vulnerable, junior investigator from his past. Years ago his heart had been intertwined with Josette Langley's, until she'd made an explosive accusation that had sent shock waves through political circles, and shattered his faith in her.
Now they are back together again and there is more at stake than just their stubborn pride. For this homicide investigation is becoming more complex and dangerous with each passing day, and time is not on their side. Can these disillusioned lovers close in on the truth before the culprit claims another victim?
Or will they both be caught in the crossfire?
