the police. Estranged from her parents, her only close family was her brother,
and his recent death devastated her.
A police detective claims that her
brothers death was the result of his
sexual perversions, but says that hell
keep quiet and let the family say he committed suicide. Nicole is certain

she can prove it. But no one believes her.

Roman McKenna,a part-time security guard for Nicoles auction house, has
just been promoted to police detective. Hes long admired her from afar. Nicole reveals to Roman that her brothers
son was with him the night he died
and has disappeared. Together the
two investigate, and each piece of the puzzle brings them closer to the answers and to each other.

and emotionally complex characters. Although much is predictable, the characters pull this book together
and will keep you reading.(May,
