Chicago homicide detective Kate Delaney fiercely defends
victims. Which is why -- despite death threats -- she's
testifying to a federal grand jury about local police
corruption. It's also why she's infuriated by the New
Orleans police department's blasÃ© attitude toward her
estranged sister's death. But pursuing an investigation in
a strange city means allying with someone who knows the
territory. And the players. Someone with a total disregard
for the rules.
As an ex-cop from a police family in New Orleans, PI Nick
Broussard knows that cops live by their own code. You don't
rat out a fellow officer. The last thing he needs is some
smart-mouthed, by-the-book outsider unknowingly injecting
herself into his undercover search for the truth. Even
worse is the way she conjures up visions of tangled
sheets. . .
Nick and Kate's chase pits them against the criminal
underworld of the sultry southern city. And as they peel
away layers of deadly deception, the discover a dark secret
too many are willing to kill to keep.
