Summary
"In New York Times bestselling author Karen Robards's latest heart-pounding romantic suspense novel, a woman must track down her husband's 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. Riley's in-laws might be billionaires, but she's afraid that not even their dirty money can protect her from an irate investor who will stop at nothing to get his hands on his misappropriated cash. Enter Finn Bradley, Philly-based FBI agent and Riley's love interest from way back when. Finn agrees to help Riley, and the two reignite sparks they both thought were extinguished long ago. But 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"--

Review
  • A hardened FBI agent is irresistibly drawn to Riley Cowan, the heroine of this intoxicating blend of romantic suspense and mystery from bestseller Robards (Guilty). Riley Cowan, who grew up poor on Philadelphia's North Side, is acutely aware of the responsibility to her ex-husband Jeff's mother and sister, who are impoverished following the imprisonment of her former father-in-law, George Cowan, convicted of illegal investment schemes. But when Jeff is found hanging from the living room ceiling in the family's empty Houston mansion, evidently a suicide, and Riley is attacked by an unknown assailant, she must turn to FBI agent Finn Bradley for help. While Finn knows that he can keep Riley safe, he believes that she's being less than truthful with him and knows that protecting her will be difficult without her complete honesty. Meanwhile, neither Finn nor Riley can deny their intense mutual physical attraction. Robards keeps the reader guessing until the explosive conclusion. Agent: Robert Gottlieb, Trident Media Group. (Dec.) --Staff (Reviewed February 23, 2015) (Publishers Weekly, vol 262, issue 08, p)
  • Riley Cowan's father-in-law infamously foisted a huge financial fraud on the world, and now Riley's estranged husband is found dead—a victim, she suspects, of an angry investor who lost out big.
