Fast-paced and well plotted, this story has everything that readers have come to expect from Neggers: flawed, multi-dimensional characters; sexy banter
and emotional truth. Heroine Abigail, in particular, is handled exceptionally well, demonstrating courage and strength usually reserved for heroes.
As they delve deeper into the past, and the dark secrets that led to murder, they're drawn together, and for the first time in years, Abigail's thoughts turn toward a potentially brighter future. (MIRA, Oct., 320 pp., $21.95)
