Hearing-impaired Claire witnesses a murder when she pays an after-hours visit to her father's office. But there's not a corpse in sight or any sign of foul play when the police arrive. Her family thinks she's lost it, until she identifies a notorious assassin as the killer. Desperately afraid that she will be the next victim, Claire turns to the arms of sexy detective A.J. Rodriguez for protection and finds passion for the first time. A courageous heroine and a hot hero with more than just Police Business (4.5) on his mind make Julie Miller's latest an irresistible read.
