Winters' story initially grabs your attention, and overall it's good story, but readers might be put off by their ability to guess the culprit early on. Fans of this author may feel that her latest falls short of her previous efforts.

Lilly Wolfe, the daughter of a successful and seemingly crooked real estate mogul, has returned to help run the company after her father falls ill. Unbeknownst to her, the company has been under the investigation of the FBI for illegal dealings, and Lilly has been identified as the link that could bring her father down.

Garrick Pratt is the FBI agent assigned to get close to Lilly and discover her father's illegal business practices. Unfortunately for them both, business is not all that is discovered, which causes tempers, suspicions and fists to fly. (Kimani/Arabesque, Nov., 288 pp., $6.99)
