My Comments:
Very good, very gripping story! An amazing tale of mystery, romance plus thrills and chills! :)

Like the last book I read by this author (Cover of Night) we read both the good guys and the bad guys stories. I find the bad guys to be a bit boring and too much extra info. But the good guys have me hooked in minutes!

A little too much graphic sexual details for me again.. but it isn't a main focus and I'll choose to get past that part to enjoy the greatness of this author's writing in future books! :)

Description from the publisher:
Some secrets need to be told...

Still reeling from her mother's recent death, Karen Whitlaw is stunned when she receives a package containing a mysterious notebook from her estranged father, whom she has barely seen since his return from the Vietnam War decades ago. Then, a shocking phone call: Karen's father has been murdered on the gritty streets of New Orleans.

Even if they lead to murder....
For homicide detective Marc Chastain, something about the case of a murdered homeless man just doesn't add up -- especially after he meets the victim's daughter. Far from the cold woman he expected, Karen Whitlaw is warm and passionate. She is also in serious danger. A string of "accidents" have shaken Karen to the core, and forced her into the protective embrace of the charming detective she vowed to resist. Together they unravel a disturbing story of politics, power, and murder -- and face a killer who will stop at nothing to get his hands on her father's secrets.
