Not in the arms of a high-powered lawyer for whom she had no heart. Not in the condo where she is trying to hide. With her life hanging by an unraveling thread, Lara puts her trust in a tough homicide detective to whom she is compellingly drawn...and mobilized her fiece intelligence to bring down the violent and powerful forces behind a lucrative breeding ground for murder - before they bring her down.
