Valerie Wilson Wesleyâ€™s private investigator, Tamara Hayle,
whom the Houston Chronicle calls â€śsmart, sexy, tough but
tender,â€ť has earned enthusiastic acclaim from reviewers and
readers alike. Now Newark, New Jerseyâ€™s savviest detective
confronts the one case she never saw comingâ€“and discovers
how ties that bind can easily become a noose.
Hayle canâ€™t believe that her life is this good. New Yorkâ€™s
most powerful businessman wants her to work for him, her new
lover seems caring and supportive, and her son, Jamal, is
thriving. But as Tamara sardonically observes, â€śWhen things
stir that easy, thereâ€™s always something lumpy at the bottom
of the pot.â€ť
Enter Lilah Love, an old acquaintance
who begs Tamara to find her missing child. Tamara, however,
is wary of Lilah, who attracts mayhem and murder like an
alley cat attracts fleas. Next up is Basil Dupre, Tamaraâ€™s
outlaw ex-lover, who always brings passionâ€“and chaosâ€“when he
strolls into Tamaraâ€™s life. Suddenly Tamaraâ€™s safe world
isnâ€™t so secure, especially when Jamal witnesses a brutal
murder and becomes the prime suspect.
As the body
count rises, Tamara and Jamal will follow a long-forgotten
secret into a terrifying confrontation with love gone bad,
trust turned lethal, and a past hungry to claim more lives.
