Homicide cop Eve Dallas and her billionaire husband, Roarke, are building a brand-new school and youth shelter.

They both believe in giving people a second chance. Maybe even a third or fourth. But as far as they're concerned, whoever gave the order on Lyle Pickering's murder has run out of chances ...
