In New York Times bestselling author Karen Robards's latest heart-pounding thriller, a woman must uncover a murderer-or risk being the next victim of a vicious killer.

When Riley Cowan finds her estranged husband Jeff dead in his palatial home, she's sure it's no coincidence. The police rule it a suicide, but Riley thinks someone's out for blood-specifically someone Jeff's father ripped off in one of the biggest financial fraud cases of all time. She suspects that someone is trying to send a message to Jeff's father: Tell me where the money is, or everyone you care about will die.

Enter Finn Bradley, an FBI agent with a dangerous secret. He's after the money too, and Riley quickly becomes his chief suspect. But when someone tries to kill her, he has no choice but to protect her until he can uncover the truth. The question becomes, can they discover the killer's identity in time, before he resurfaces-and strikes again?

Dubbed an "exceptional storyteller" by the Chicago Tribune and "one of the most popular voices in women's fiction" by Newsweek , Karen Robards's latest action-packed novel will keep you glued to the pages until the final, shocking conclusion.

Karen Robards is becoming predictable in her characters. Always a cute tiny female vs a hunky big male that end up falling for each other but she does weave in an entertaining story. Predictable but entertaining.

I really liked this book. Robard's books are hit and miss, but this is a real hit. I liked that Riley is smart and sexy. I was totally surprised by the twist in this book. Once it was out, the reader is "oh, now I get it". Towards the end I had figured out who the real bad guy was, but it made sense.

Good read the story line is good and it kept me guessing up until the end, had a good mix of suspense and romance! I loved it and Karen Robards is becoming one of my new favorite authors.

It wasn't one of my favorites but okay. I was disappointed in her dragging on and on.

I generally like this author but this book was garbage. Almost as if someone else had written it.

This book is not as good as some of her earlier books.
