Publisher Comments:

Elizabeth Hampton is consumed by grief when her mother dies unexpectedly. Leslie Hampton cared for Elizabeths troubled brother Ronnies special needs, assuming Elizabeth would take him in when the time came. But Leslies sudden death propels Elizabeth into a world of danger and double lives that undoes everything she thought she knew....

When police discover that Leslie was strangled, they immediately suspect that one of Ronnies outbursts took a tragic turn. Elizabeth cant believe that her brother is capable of murder, but who else could have had a motive to kill their quiet, retired mother? 

More questions arise when a stranger is named in Leslies will: a woman also named Elizabeth. As the familys secrets unravel, a man from Leslies past who claims to have all the answers shows up, but those answers might put Elizabeth and those she loves the most in mortal danger. 


In this sexy, fast-paced literary thriller, Unger takes readers on a breathtaking ride in which a young New York writer's good deed has terrible consequences and leaves her running for her life.

Ridley Jones reminds me of Sara Paretsky's heroine. Ridley is young, brash and full of energy and cyniscism. She takes risks that make the reader say "no no!" but she doesn't always get off easily from her dangerous lifestyle. In fact she get lambasted. But Ridley is charming and the reader hopes she will be more careful. But as any successful "detective" will tell you, it's the periolous moves that scare the mice out of hiding.
