This is a story full of intrigue and betrayal, with characters that may or may not be trustworthy. Add to this an underlying theme of family that grounds the players in what's truly important and this book is a winner. In Washington DC the stakes are high, with everybody manipulating and maneuvering for position, wanting what doesn't belong to them, all willing to risk everything for lust, money, power and even love. Catherine and Joe learn the hard way what it takes to survive in the cutthroat world of politics and their hunt for a killer will leave readers guessing as the truth unfolds with a surprising twist.

Catherine moves to Washington DC for the summer to determine exactly what happened to her murdered sister, despite years of no contact after she caught Blair and her then husband in bed together. She confided the secret of her estrangement to the wrong man once before and has vowed to never forgive Joe Rossi for the very public humiliation she and her family suffered when he printed the story without her consent. Now that she's in DC, Joe wants to explain the reason for his betrayal and possibly help her find out the truth about Blair. (CARINA PRESS, Jul., dl., $3.99)
