Former Secret Service agent Will Shannon knows he's in deep trouble when he wakes up groggy and disoriented at the scene of his client's murder. Millionaire businessman--and drug mogul--Greg Vincent has been shot with Will's own gun, and Will has no memories of the last few hours. When the police arrive, Will realizes he's been set up and escapes.

Wounded and needing help, he seeks out former partner Cait Malone. Because of the circumstances surrounding his departure from the Secret Service, Will thinks that no one will suspect he'd turn to Cait for help. But he's wrong. No sooner does he arrive than Cait is nearly killed by a mysterious intruder. With the cards clearly stacked against them, Cait and Will attempt to place the disjointed pieces of this murderous puzzle into place and uncover the truth.

This twisty and gripping thriller is proof that Wilson writes top-notch romantic suspense. This tale could be ripped from the headlines, which makes it timely as well as engrossing. (Nov., 384 pp., $5.99)
