Tatum Knight is a former contract killer. And he's Miami criminal defense lawyer Jack Swytek's newest client. Tatum is the older brother of Jack's best friend, Theo. Theo himself spent time on death row until Jack found the evidence to prove him innocent. Jack isn't so sure about Tatum.

A gorgeous young woman has been shot dead in her Mercedes on a Miami street. Sally Fenning was worth forty-eight million dollars when she died. Money had never made her happy, so she left it all to her enemies -- left it for them to fight over, that is. She named six heirs in her will, but no one gets a penny until all but one of the heirs is dead.

Jack alone knows that heir number six -- Tatum Knight -- is a professional killer. As the heirs begin to fall, Jack and his sidekick Theo are in a race against time to discover if Tatum is behind all the killing. Or is someone even more frightening, more dangerous the odds-on favorite to be the last to die?

    Booklist

  • “Grippandos style keeps the story moving and renders the legal aspects understandable.”

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katrina | 2/13/2014

    " HOLY SHIT.. One of Tess's best books! She kept me guessing until the end on who was Icarus, which since I was listening to the audiobook, did not make sense until the 3rd part of the book. I kept wondering why in the world was Tess telling me about some random Italian guy. I really hope that Maura doesn't leave for Evensong but I completely understand her reasoning... I keep hoping that Daniel will come to his senses, leave the priesthood, and be with her so she can stay in Boston with Jane. I don't trust Sansone, or his society and I don't think he'd be good for Maura. "

    " Not her best. I thought it lacked something and a bit predictable. I didn't like the 'sinister school' premise, it was like a little jaunt into the horror jenre! It has however made me want to reread her last two books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donna Lewis | 8/6/2013

    " I liked the book, but it had a higher than usual unbelievability factor. I still love Det. Rizzoli and Maura Isles, medical examiner, and it is great to read about them again. I did find the story engaging, and I was interested in finding out why the students have such violent pasts. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Old_airman | 2/9/2011

    " The majority of the story takes place in Maine. Continuation of previous characters. Maybe not as fast paced as some of the previous novels, but surprises at the end were well worth the wait. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marilyn | 12/23/2010

    " I love Tess Gerritsen's plots. Just when you think you know the bad guy & the twist, suddenly the story takes a turn you never saw coming. The TV show almost as good as the books. "
