Description

In this tantalizing thriller from a #1 New York Times bestselling author, a woman uncovers lifelong secrets as she searches for the truth behind her father's involvement in a heist gone wrong.

Twenty years ago in the dead of night, four seemingly random individuals pulled the ultimate heist and almost walked away with half a million dollars. But by daybreak, their plan had been shot to hell. One of them was in the hospital. One was in jail. One was dead. And one got away with it.

Arden Maxwell, the daughter of the man who disappeared all those years ago -- presumably with the money, after murdering his accomplice -- has never reconciled with her father's abandonment of her and her sister. After countless personal setbacks she decides to return to her family home near mysterious Caddo Lake, and finally get answers to the many questions that torment her. Little does she know, two of her father's co-conspirators -- a war hero and a corrupt district attorney -- are watching her every move.

Ledge Burnet, a rebellious teen at the time of the heist, evaded his jail sentence by enlisting in the army. Now he's back in town to care for his ailing father -- and to keep his eye on the county's corrupt district attorney, whom he suspects was the real murderer. Although the two are bound to silence because of the crime they committed together, each has spent years waiting and hoping that the other will make a fatal misstep. But the arrival of their elusive accomplice's daughter, Arden, who may know more about the missing money than she's telling, sets them both on red alert. She ignites Ledge's determination to expose the D.A.'s treachery . . . and sparks a desire he wishes to deny.

    Great read! I couldn’t let it down, once I started. Like all of Sandra’s books, they all cause addiction 🙂

    Great read and Plot! There were a few editing errors which always peeve me, but not the author’s fault!

    I absolutely loved this book. I’ve read just about every Sandra Brown book out there and was so excited for this one to be released. It did not disappoint. When I wasn’t reading the book I found myself thinking about the plot during the day at work LOL. It was fast-paced, had a lot of twists and turns and just when you think you know something it catches you off guard and the story takes a turn. I will definitely be reading this one again in the future.
  • Not good at all

    I’ve never disliked a Sandra Brown book but this one was awful. I can’t believe she wrote it. Normally I speed through her books but this one was so dull I kept putting it down and coming back thinking something would happen to keep me in it. It has a slight curve at the end but that’s all.

    Read like Readers Digest condensed book. Good story but so abbreviated..felt like money spent poorly.

    Don’t believe the Publisher’s Weekly review. The pace was slow, the action was not there, love scenes...eh, and did not entertain until the very end. Disappointment...keep your money.
