An interesting plot, but at points the story is hard to believe. Readers may not buy the fact that nearly everyone Lucia comes into contact with works for the bad guys, but the book is still an enjoyable read.

Private investigator Lucia Garza has been strangely attracted to ex-cop-gone-bad Benjamin McCarthy ever since she interviewed him for a case.

When Ben is released from prison after being exonerated, Lucia finds out that he was never crooked -- that he, in fact, works for the same smoke-and-mirrors organization of good guys that she occasionally works for.
