Missing diamonds and a killer on the loose…will a schoolteacher and FBI agent escape with their lives and hearts intact?
Lack of evidence means the acquittal of Niccolo Gueraldi’s favored killer for hire, Ashton Smythe. Having failed in his mission to avenge his partner, Serena Roarke, Agent Gabriel Spiller returns to Alabama to search in secret for the missing diamonds needed to reopen the investigation and to lay low from the death threats he’s received since Smythe went free.
Almost two years after her sister’s death, Leannan O’Neal feels Serena's loss now more than ever. A secret meeting before Serena died left Lea with an ugly figurine and nothing but questions. And then the hang-up calls, death threats, and finally coming home to a trashed house remind her of Serena's warning.
With a killer out for revenge and hot on her heels, Lea goes on the run in search of Serena’s ‘angel’, but how long can Gabe keep her alive? And at what cost?
