Book eight in the New York Times and USA Today best-selling Rose Gardner Mystery series.
Rose Gardner has survived plenty of close scrapes in the past, but her latest bit of trouble has landed her in the Fenton County holding cell on trumped-up charges. The most powerful man in Southern Arkansas, J. R. Simmons, is determined to put her behind bars for good and destroy everything she holds dear, including her boyfriend, Mason, and her friend, Skeeter, reigning king of the Fenton County crime world.
In a stunning betrayal, it seems as if J. R.'s son, Rose's ex-boyfriend, might have turned tail and joined his father. But Rose doesn't have to face this fight alone. Her tight-knit group of friends is dedicated to helping her figure out - and foil - J. R.'s plan for ruining her, Mason, and Skeeter. But even with their support and the use of her special power, Rose is at a disadvantage. J. R. is a criminal mastermind who has been using his money, power, and web of influence to hide his conspiracies for years. How can she hope to find solid evidence implicating someone who's mastered the art of not getting caught?
Time is running out, and soon Rose realizes that reassuming her role of the Lady in Black might be her only chance at ferreting out the evidence that will save them all. In so doing, she will risk not only her life but the possibility that her secret identity will be unveiled to all.
