The #1 New York Times bestselling author of Thick As Thieves “charges her characters and their relationships with electricity” (San Francisco Book Review) in this gripping novel of suspense.
When a deranged stalker attempts to murder her daughter Berry, Caroline King has no doubts about who to contact for help: Berry’s father, the cagey private investigator Dodge Hanley. It’s been thirty years since Dodge last saw Caroline, but she remains the one woman—among many—that he can’t forget. He has a whole bagful of grudging excuses for ignoring Caroline’s call—and one compelling reason to drop everything and fly down to Texas to protect the daughter he’s never met: guilt.
As always, Dodge’s perseverance knows no bounds as he teams with a small-town sheriff, but the alarming situation worsens when the stalker claims other victims, leaving a trail of clues lethally pointing toward Berry. And Dodge—a street-smart fighter who has always put his life on the line—realizes that this time, he’s risking his heart as well.
