About this title


In a matter of seconds, Leotis Wilson murders his entire family and speeds away in his pickup. His only witness is homicide detective Jessie Sands, who arrives on the scene just before he commits the crime. As Jessie tails Leotis to a bridge, she watches him toss his shotgun into the river and then points her .38 at him. But Leotis refuses to give up easily. In the ensuing struggle, Jessie shoots him, unintentionally drops her gun, and watches helplessly as it falls into the water below.

When Internal Affairs is called to investigate the officer-involved shooting, Jessie knows she may be in trouble, even though she acted in self-defense. She has no idea how bad that trouble will be-soon her lost weapon is used to kill a prominent attorney.

Meanwhile, in Atlanta, Detective Bud Prior is investigating a complex case involving greed, murder, and temptation. As Jessie works to solve her own high-profile murder investigation, she is inexorably drawn into the evil web Bud has just uncovered involving a bad cop. As the two detectives attempt to bring their nemesis to justice, neither is prepared for what is about to happen next.

In this riveting murder mystery, two detectives must sacrifice everything in order to take down a crime ring fueled by a cold-hearted, determined villain.

From the Back Cover:

"Stop and lay on the ground!" Jessie yelled, and then she fired over his head. Wilson flinched at the sound of the shot but continued toward her. Her next shot caught him high in the chest. He staggered backward but then still kept coming. She fired two more times in quick succession. The first shot missed but the second also hit his chest. Immediately, frothy red blood bloomed from the wound. 

But Wilson still kept coming. Jessie had only two bullets left. Wilson was five feet from her when, with shaking hands, she fired her fifth shot and missed. 

Wilson was well over six feet tall and seemed huge and menacing as he advanced. She kept backing up until she felt the bridge rail pressing into her hip. As Wilson took another step, she pointed the gun at his face and pulled the trigger.

Blowback from the passage of the bullet through Wilson's head covered her face with bloody bits of skull and brains. Her eyes immediately began to sting, and as Jessie reflexively raised her hands to her eyes, without thinking, she dropped her gun. She quickly wiped her eyes clear and saw the gun falling toward the river far below her. She watched it splash into the water near where Wilson had tossed his shotgun.
