BERKLEY / PAPERBACK
The job Griff agrees to do for the Speakmans
demands secrecy. But he soon finds himself
once again in the spotlight of suspicion. An
unsolved murder comes back to haunt him
in the form of his nemesis, Stanley Rodarte,
who has made Griff’s destruction his life’s
mission. While safeguarding his new
enterprise, Griff must also protect those
around him, especially Laura Speakman,
from Rodarte’s ruthlessness. Griff stands
to gain the highest payoff he could ever
imagine, but cashing in on
it will require him to forfeit
his only chance for redemption
. . . and love.
