After a one-night tryst with the enticing vixen, the unsuspecting surgeon finds himself the target of a powerful U.S. senator, organized crime, and a figure from his past he had long forgotten – all because he succumbs to the charms of a woman he can’t resist, despite the predicament she has put him in. Beginning in Jack’s once-peaceful North Carolina beach town, a deadly game of sex, money, and retribution plays out to a thrilling conclusion.
For years, Luke Elliot has been a respectable businessman. But he’s also had a secret life no one knows, and he’s given that up to settle down completely. But when his world is torn apart by tragedy, he flees in despair from all that could evoke painful memories for a fresh start in another part of the country.
And there he meets the beautiful and mysterious Jessica Morrow, who is also trying to escape from a past she can’t face. As they become close, and Luke finally discovers what her backstory is, he realizes their fateful meeting could end up getting both of them killed.
Paths that began in Chicago and San Diego, with stops along the way in Santa Fe and Philadelphia, converge in Seattle, where a deadly cat-and-mouse game ensues, forcing Luke to call upon his lethal skills once more to save himself and the woman he loves.
Former surgeon Jack Lansing has become a bestselling mystery writer. At a book-signing event he meets an old colleague who, unbeknownst to him, has carried a grudge against Jack for thirty years. Then murders start popping up in and around Jack's peaceful beach town - murders that mimic the plots in Jack's books and make him a suspect. He must convince the police and the FBI of his innocence while trying to solve the mystery himself. Because, he realizes, he and his wife could be the killer's final victims. It is a chilling tale of twists and turns, worthy of Jack's imagination, but this time he doesn't know how the story will end.
