Being the hero is her job. It also comes at a price.
Darcy Walker is settling into life walking a beat. But when she delivers a warrant off the clock, her life changes in an instant, giving her a deadly lesson she won’t soon forget. Going back to her roots for a temporary change of scenery, she can’t escape the reality that life has gone on without her—her father might have a girlfriend, her aunt has secrets, and her little sister dresses like a stripper in her prime.
Choking on a pang of guilt that she followed her dreams, one thing that hasn’t changed is the relationship between her and her mentor, Kellan Sutherland, AKA, Jaws—king of the underbelly of Cincinnati. Six years later, Darcy still doesn’t know the real man behind the proverbial mask...and she’s tired of the subterfuge.
Determined to uncover the mystery, she discovers information that leaves her gobsmacked. Sucker-punched. And doubting her skills as an investigator. When she gets involved with a case involving a missing YouTuber while dodging the antics of a mobster who's placed a bounty on her head, she and her loved ones just could pay the ultimate price.
