She was a vision. She was a siren. She was a nightmare. She was dead. Now he needed her to disappear. And he knew just how to make it happen. The Palm Beach elite go to great lengths to protect their own—and their own no longer includes Elena Estes. Once upon a time a child of wealth and privilege, Elena turned her back on that life. Betrayed and disillusioned by those closest to her, she chose the life of an undercover cop, the hunt for justice her own personal passion. Then a tragic, haunting mistake ended her career. Now Elena exists on the fringes of her old life, training horses for a living. But a shocking event is about to draw her back into the painful vortex she’s fought so hard to leave behind.

First she finds the body—a young woman used, murdered, and dumped in a canal. Not just a victim, but a friend. As Elena delves into her dead friend’s secret life, she discovers ties not only to the Russian mob but also to a group of powerful and wealthy Palm Beach bad boys known for giving each other alibis to cover a multitude of sins. A group that includes a man Elena once knew very well—her former fiancé, Bennett Walker, a man she knows has already escaped justice at least once in his life.

Finding her friend’s killer will put Elena at odds with her old life, with her new lover, and with herself. But she is determined to reveal the truth—a truth that will shock Palm Beach society to its core, and could very well get her killed.

    " Pretty good light mystery. This is the second book with Elena Estes who is an ex-socialite, ex-cop working as a groom in a rich man's stable. This book is about a group of polo enthusiasts that give each other alibis for their indescretions, in this case of course it's murder. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie | 7/23/2013

    " This wasn't my favorite Tami Hoag book. I much prefer her earlier suspense novels, and maybe she should move the focus off Florida and back to Minnesota to recapture the greatness. But, the book was a breezy who-done-it. "

    " I picked up this book somewhere in my travels and read it, later someone recommended Tami Hoag to me and I wasn't really sure why. I'm not one to guess at the ending of myteries, but this one was inescapable. Like Steven King, perhaps she doesn't know how to end a story. "

    " This was my first read by this author. This book shows how rich business men think they are above the law and that nothing pertains to them. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Peggy Parsons | 3/31/2013

    " Enjoyed the mystery - good mix of action and interrogating. But warning: the characters and language are rough. Reminded me of a J.D. Robb in tone. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sheryl | 2/8/2013

    " I enjoy all of her books, more twists than you can imagine. I never know where the story is going to end up, which is a good thing. Characters are well fleshed out so you actually feel for them. A great way to get away from the real world. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Janetta | 4/11/2011

    " This book had a stagnant plot and little suspense. It might work as a beach read but nothing else in my opinion. "

    " It's been a while since I read a Tami Hoag book,and this novel was much better than I had anticipated. I liked how it switched between first and third person, but Elena's whole bitterness shtick did get a bit old by the end. Still, it was a good, quick read. "
