Headstrong and impulsive reporter Cassie Phillips hitchhikes across Missouri in search of a prize-winning story. Instead, she’s attacked and ends up lost in East St. Louis…until drug dealer Tony Scarlotti finds her and takes her home. The inconsistencies in the man haunt her, and as their paths continue to cross, she questions who he really is. But when he’s jailed for murdering a police officer and then works his way into the Mafia, she gives up trying to believe in him. Her questions are finally answered just before he’s gunned down by a rival family in a shoot-out under the Gateway Arch. Now she’s running for her life with no one to help her.
Murder, mystery, thrilling! This book has it all. Cassie Phillips is an awesome character and I became quite anxious for her safety. Fast-paced with incredible action, this story is so compelling I could not put it down. Could there be another episode in this exciting adventure? I hope so.
