Rose Gardner collects secrets the way other people collect junk—and now she’s being asked to expose them. Special Prosecutor Mason Deveraux has called a grand jury to investigate the corruption in the Sweet Branch Police Department, and he’s summoned Rose as a witness. Any topic is fair game, and the criminals in Fenton county are rightly scared of what she might share under oath.
While trying to placate the lawless men, Rose is also caring for her dying sister, Violet. Only Violet’s doctor has fled town after selling prescriptions, and Rose is sure big-time drug dealer Denny Carmichael has his hand in the situation. She has no intention of investigating, but like with a lot of her cases, clues keep falling into her lap.
Then, just when it feels like everything’s at a boiling point, Rose gets shocking news that turns her life upside down. Now, she’s not just soothing the criminals’ anxiety, but actively seeking allies for a fight she hasn’t asked for—and her enemy just might be the man she loves.

I adore this series
I love all of these books, and this one was no exception. Perfect, but need more. Please don’t stop writing them. My favorite series of all time.
Cannot get enough
This book, along with all of the other Rose and Neely Kate books, has kept me on the edge of my seat! As I read my heart races for her. I tell everyone I know about these books. Her writing gets better and better with every book. I can only hope that she’s not ending the series with Neely Kate’s ‘Dirty Money.’ I would be utterly devastated. And so would everyone who has begun to read them at my relentless insistence!!!
If you want an amazing read that will take you so deep you’ll forget how to breathe. This it. You won’t regret it.
