The last woman Tanner is ready for is the one he must save.
Who is shooting at Allison Northcutt?
Detective Tanner Landis must find out before the next bullet reaches its target. And there's nothing like a complicated history between the two of them to make that more challenging.
Tanner and his Fairlington County, Virginia, partner, Rutherford "Bel" Belichek, have worked many cases brought to trial by their colleague and friend, Assistant Commonwealth's Attorney Maggie Frye. He’s never told either of them of his connection to Maggie’s cousin Allison.
He wouldn’t tell them now, either, if it didn’t matter for saving her life.
Ally has sustained more than her share of trauma. She and her two cousins lost their beloved aunt to murder when they were teens and have been bonded ever since. And, for the past four and a half years, she has carried the burden of her police officer husband being shot in the head outside their Maryland home.
He has not recovered and now is near death. Is that the key to who is after Ally? But why now? And is the law enforcement-laden Northcutt family history at the center of this web?
