"At the urging of her lover, Aimee Grant, Kate reluctantly attends a 25th reunion of those she served with in Vietnam, an event she's avoided to keep her memories at bay, and the past shrouded in stoic silence." "But amidst the autumnal damp of Washington, Kate's reticence turns to terror when their hotel room door is sprayed with bullets. Then one of the reunion guests is murdered - and it doesn't take long for the D.C. cops to determine that everyone in their group is a suspect, including Kate. As a cop on the inside, Kate pursues professionally what she's already discovered personally: that the price of freedom means she must solve a heinous crime to put fear to rest - and save her and Aimee's life... Katherine V. Forrest explores the cold heart of murder - and the landscape of a lesbian relationship - in a mystery that makes its mark as both compelling entertainment and fine literature."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
