It was his most personal cold case
and it was about to be reopened
It was the one case Detective Sam Vernelli couldn't solve: the murder of his fiancée more than a decade ago. So he's not about to let her determined younger sister, Claire Fontaine, go it alone against whomever is threatening her in ways frightening and all-too-familiar. But protecting her means challenging Claire's angry doubts about him, understanding her deepest fears and letting her get much too close as every dead-end lead pushes their fragile trust to the breaking point. Sam slowly begins to realize that the truth lies closer to home than either of them ever imaginedand the price of revealing it could be more than they bargained for.
