New York Times bestselling author Karen Robards delivers another unputdownable thriller.

When rookie cop Micayla Lange arrests a man she discovers breaking into her old family friend Nicco Marino's mansion, her troubles have only just begun. Because, as she pulls a gun on professional thief Jason Davis, he drops the bag he's stolen - and it spills open to reveal photographs of Micayla's genial 'uncle' Nicco handing money to a number of Detroit's most powerful politicians and law-makers. No-one was meant to see those photos, least of all a police officer. And - with close circuit cameras capturing every moment of Micayla's realisation that Uncle Nicco is seriously involved with the mob - she may now be in mortal danger. But Jason has a suggestion. Perhaps if they team up - then maybe there'll a chance they'll both get out alive... He's her only hope. But can she trust him with her life?

But when Gina makes it safely back to camp and finds her entire team murdered, all bets are off, and as darkness envelops the island, she must decide: trust a man she barely knows, or go it alone and risk running straight into the arms of a killer?
