Ryan Livingston thinks she has the perfect career as an attorney and campaign manager for her brother, Peter Livingston, the up-and-coming Senate candidate. But when an ex-con is murdered and gives a deathbed accounting of secret incriminating evidence, she teams up with longtime boyfriend Police Chief Jim Kanter, determined to find the documents and the truth behind them.
Jim Kanter has a good life. He’s respected for his unwavering integrity and fierce devotion to his job. Ex-military, he’s haunted by his failure to save his team from an Iraqi sniper.
Their investigation leads them to a well-entrenched drug ring, forgers, blackmailers, and a bombshell, a betrayer targeting them both. In this game of betrayer and betrayed, Ryan is the killer’s next target. But Jim is determined to not let any of that happen.
