Lozada's menacing shadow looms over the murder, but it's Rennie the investigators focus on as a prime suspect. The privacy she has cultivated and protected at all costs is violated by the police as well as Lozada. And when he begins an earnest courtship, it becomes terrifyingly clear that he is obsessed with having her.Wick Threadgill is a detective on indefinite leave from the Fort Worth PD, who has a personal agenda for the contract killer.

The abridged version is bad

You miss so much of the story. It's a great SB book, but can't even listen to the abridged version after hearing the unabridged. I'd buy it again in a minute if they come out with the unabridged version. Don't waste your money on this one.
