The New York Times bestselling author of Closer Than You Think returns with a breathtaking new novel of suspense that crosses the line between danger and desire, and justice and revenge.Homicide detective Scarlett Bishop has seen enough bad guys slip through the cracks and too many innocent victims go unavenged to know that good doesn't always prevail. So far, she's been able to lock away her rage and her vigilante fantasies. That lock is about to break. Former army ranger Marcus O'Bannion is a fierce champion of victims' rights. His secret past gives him good reason. He believes he's seen the depths of human depravity, but then his investigation into the murder of a young girl who once asked for his help lures him and Scarlett down a dark, dark road—and straight into the crosshairs of a dangerous, powerful underground ring that deals in human trade. To stop them, Scarlett and Marcus have to be just as cunning and just as ruthless. But first they have to make it out alive.

  • Publisher's Weekly

    December 14, 2015
    The latest romantic thriller from Rose (set in Cincinnati, like 2014’s Closer Than You Think) deftly mixes a family crime saga and the horrors of human trafficking into a murder investigation. When detective Scarlett Bishop gets a call from newspaper publisher Marcus O’Bannion in the middle of the night, she’s drawn into a murder case that touches on both of their dark pasts and includes a huge criminal operation specializing in slavery. Rose doesn’t shy away from big casts—there are dozens of characters at play here, all well-defined—or explicit brutality, especially during the subplot in which the head villain tortures and kills members of his own organization to uncover a traitor. The copious (and extremely hot) sex and often-graphic violence combine into a solid tale that’s marred only by a lazy cliché when Scarlett taunts a suspect about the possibility of being sexually assaulted in prison. That blemish aside, it’s a gripping story, with enough groundwork laid for plenty of sequels. Agent: Robin Rue, Writers House.
