Weston Graham is a chameleon. He has gone by many names, worn many faces, and assumed many personalities. These incarnations have enabled him to bilk wealthy women of their fortunes...and then to disappear along with the women, only to resurface with a new identity and his sights set on another victim. FBI Special Agent Drex Easton's mother was the first of eight known victims, whom Drex believes all died at their seducer's hand, although none of their bodies has ever been discovered. Drex has made it his mission in life to bring this serial predator to justice. The book opens with Drex learning of a likely suspect, a man living in suburbia with a new guise and a new alias: Jasper Ford. His probably next target is Talia Shafer, a successful businesswoman who made a fortune in the travel industry. She is also Jasper Ford's much younger wife. In order to get close to the couple and ascertain if Jasper Ford is, in fact, Weston Graham, Drex must assume a false identity of his own and moves in next door to the couple. His goal is fixed on Jasper; his eyes are fixed on Talia.In a high stakes game of wits, Jasper and Drex play each other, each trying to outfox the other. It's a game which Drex must win before Jasper eludes him yet again...and Talia becomes victim number nine.Praise for Sandra Brown'Suspense that has teeth'Stephen King'Lust, jealousy, and murder suffuse Brown's crisp thriller'Publishers Weekly'An edge-of-the-seat thriller that's full of twists . . .
