Desperate to clear her friend, Barbara can't turn away from a 12 year-old boy’s cry for help. His father's suicide may have been murder—and he’s afraid the killer is coming back. Torn between her two clients, Barbara races the clock to save them both. With a little help from Nick, the sexy insurance salesman–or is he?
Two very different cases begin to connect, and draw Barbara too close to a killer. Will she go too far this time?
Melissa Giannis husband was found dead, and everything points to a powerful underworld figure. The police turned her away, so she looks to Jayson for justice. She hires him to hunt down the villain who put her husband in the grave. Jayson has no idea, however, that his life is about to go haywire. The deeper he gets into the investigation, the more he realizes he has no one to turn to and no one to trust.
To Jayson, even the police commissioner is suspect. After a break in the case, Jayson realizes the murder of Melissas husband is related to the death of Jaysons own brother. What began as a search for justice has become a bloody vendetta for this PI. His actions are amidst a gruesome gang war, and hes about to make it worse. Or, for once, could the Crescent City find a little peace?
