Benjamin and his wife, Alicia, played detective last season when they rescued her sister from a kidnapper, and Lady DeBrooke’s second husband was Benjamin’s friend. Can he uncover a connection between his sister-in-law’s abduction and these threats, and whether the culprit is a “friend” out to lure him into a new hunt for an old prey? Benjamin and Alicia follow a winding trail that compels them to realize the depth of their relationship as well as unmask a ruthless killer. (SIGNET ECLIPSE, Mar., 332 pp., $7.99)
