Dan Santini left the NYPD and became a professor of Applied Criminal Psychology in Chicago. He'd left behind a lot of bad memories from work on the force and a badly failed marriage. When he receives a call from his mother informing him of his former father-in-law's death, he feels the urge to get involved, but fights the feeling.

Jill Bennett refuses to believe that her father's death was the accident everyone says it was. She knew that he had been edgy in the days leading up to his death, and that something in the scenario wasn't quite right. And her questions must be scaring someone, because now theyre after her.

A phone call from a friend brings the one person she doesn't want in the picture…Dan. Many unresolved feelings resurface as the two are thrown into an investigation that includes family and business associates.

With nothing exactly as it seems, Christiane Heggan displays her skill for suspense as she leaves readers breathless. (Oct., 376 pp., $5.99)
