The powerful thriller from the author of IMMORAL - 'Breathtakingly real...page-turning psychological suspense' Jeffery Deaver.
Brian Freeman's second novel is a gripping, hard-hitting thriller set in one of the most fascinating, sexy and intriguing cities in the world, Las Vegas. It puts his on-going detective character Jonathan Stride on the trail of a cunning and relentless killer.
Elonda's seen most things working the streets. But it's a first when her client is shot dead in the act. Detective Jonathan Stride quickly establishes that the victim is M.J. Lane, son of a reclusive millionaire film producer. Another death is also troubling the Vegas force - that of a little boy, killed in a hit-and-run incident involving a stolen car. Then the body of a woman is found in a remote farmhouse.
Could the murders be linked? It seems the killer wants to send a message about the brutal slaying decades earlier of a nightclub dancer. That case was wrapped up quickly. Perhaps too quickly? Someone certainly thinks so - and he's set on murderous revenge for the sins of the past.
