Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tara Holloway has got your number. A special agent on the IRSs payroll, shes dead-set on making sure that money crimes dont pay…

Tax cheats, beware: The Treasury Departments Criminal Investigations Division has a new special agent on its payroll. A recovering tomboy with a head for numbers, Taras fast becoming the Annie Oakley of the IRS—kicking ass, taking social security numbers, and keeping the world safe for honest taxpayers. Or else.

Taras latest mission finds her in hot pursuit of ice-cream vendor Joseph “Joe Cool” Cullen. Along with frozen treats hes selling narcotics—and failing to report his ill-gotten gains on his tax returns. Over Taras dead body. Then theres Michael Gryder, who appears to be operating a Ponzi scheme…with banker Stan Shelton…whose lake house is being landscaped by Brett Ellington…who happens to be dating Tara. If following that money trail isnt tough enough, now Tara must face a new conundrum: Should she invest her trust in Brett—or put him behind bars? New love always comes at a cost but justice? Priceless.
