He didn’t wake up thinking about murder. He woke up
thinking about the blonde on his bed and a stack of pancakes…Funny how things
When Davenport is called to the white-stuccoed house
after the party, he knows it’s for no usual case. For one thing, the
strangulation victim is Alie'e Maison, she of the knife-edge cheekbones and
jade-green eyes: as models go, one of the biggest. For another, there are a few
small complications—such as the drugs in her body and the evidence that she had
recently made love to a woman; such as the fact that one of Lucas’ own men had
been at the party and is now a suspect; such as the little surprise they are
all about to find when they search the house: a second body, stuffed in a
closet, with a deep dent in its skull.
The whole case is going to be like this, Lucas knows—secrets piled upon
secrets, the ground shifting constantly under his feet. But even he cannot predict
the earth tremors he is about to feel, when an old lover comes back into his
life, a woman he has never been able to forget … whose own secrets may turn out
to be the most perplexing ones of all.
