In New York Times bestselling author Karen Robards' 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' latest action-packed novel will keep you glued to the pages until the final, shocking conclusion.

Someone should label this a fantasy romance
I bought it because it sounded good in the write up. And the plot had the potential to be good. But the unrealistic reactions of the characters made it impossible to listen to. If I had to hear one more time about his "man smell" or his erection I thought I was going to throw up. I couldn't get through it. Why would ANY woman in her position react to a man who had the potential to jail her in that way. And they just kept going over the same thing again and again. And why would a professional man react to a witness who he KNOWS is lying to him? Give me a break. If I want soft porn I can find it somewhere else!
I would not have BOUGHT the book if it had been labeled better.
Narrator could only do so much with what was written.
All of the romance part, but then you would only have a 2 hour book!
A Rambling Story
It is a rambling story that can't decide if it is a romance or a mystery and does a poor job of coming to a conclusion about either.
Had a better editor, one who would have told her "Karen honey, you are rambling, you need to move the story along and please for the love of good writing stop calling attention to the mans erection! When you reference it once to the size of a log; there is absolutely no need to keep calling attention to it again and again because most people are paying attention and are looking for the scene that is going to give pay dirt!"
Her diction is very off putting and slow. She is not consistent with character voices.
Inpatients. I was disappointed, I have read other books by this author and liked them very much. This book is flat, very little to like about the characters and convoluted.
While I do not recommend this book, I do recommend the author. Her other books are good and have endearing likeable characters.
