Hot on the heels of Smoke Screen, which debuted at #1 on the New York Times bestseller list, Sandra Brown returns with a new novel full of her trademarks, shocking twists, breathless suspense, and sizzle. When a prominent Atlanta businessman is shot and killed during an armed robbery, it appears to be a situation of wrong place, wrong time. But his friend Julie Rutledge believes differently and sets out to prove that it was murder, orchestrated by the victim's nephew, Creighton Wheeler. Representing him is famed defense lawyer Derek Mitchell, who soon realizes that his client is as depraved as Julie claims.
