For 13 years, Alexandra Jane Baker has waited to expose her father's killer. Just when her goal is in sight, her dear friend and conspirator, Luca Kole, is gunned down in an apparent robbery.

Homicide detective Hank Bonner has only two weeks left until he leaves the force to take care of the family apple farm. That's when he's handed the Kole murder case. He quickly surmises there is much more going on than a simple robbery. The trail leads to Alexandra and her joint venture with Russian businessman Mikail Petrov. Hank is forced to walk a fine line on this case. He knows that Alexandra is in this up to her neck, but what exactly is she trying to accomplish?

Money, greed and power seem to be at the root of all evil, and that is certainly the case in this new thriller. Solomon has the ability to infuse her characters with raw emotion and a thirst for vengeance. Excitement and tension galore! (Apr., 352 pp., $5.99)
