Number One New York Times bestselling author Sandra Brown returns with another suspenseful thriller
Burke Basile is a cop with nothing left to lose. Haunted by his partner’s death, his marriage and his career over, he focuses on his nemesis, Pinkie Duvall, a flamboyant attorney who helps killers evade justice.
Burke looks for revenge and sees his opportunity lies with Remy, the lawyer’s trophy wife. But Burke hasn’t planned on the electric attraction he’ll feel for the desperate woman, who rose from the slums of New Orleans to marry a man she can never love.
Nor can he predict the fierce duel that will explode as the clock ticks toward midnight on Fat Tuesday, when all masks will be stripped away and Burke must confront his own terrifying secret.
