Synopsis

Julia Metcalf’s chilling dream foretells the kidnapping of her wealthy best friend, Mae Arbeson. Mae’s stepson Seth watches the police investigate in guarded silence.

Detective Tony Lange is assigned the case. He finds Julia irresistible. Against protocol, he asks her on a date, during which he gets the news he knows will break her heart.

Will Seth gain control of his trust and inherit millions of motives for murder? The loan sharks to whom he owes money believe Julia will secure their payoff, and they will stop at nothing to get it.

Excerpt

Dale went back to his cube for a while to update his murder book and file his report. Only one thing was on his mind — the inch-and-a-half-thick T-bone steak waiting for him in a savory marinade at home. In his mind, he grilled it to mouth-watering perfection. He left the station in a hurry. Maybe some portabella caps to go with the steak. He jingled the keys between his fingers.

Out of the blue, the hairs on the back of his neck stood on end. Just as he turned, pain in his chest spread like fire. The air left his lungs with a whump.

He heard a sound that struck fear in his heart. Oh shit, I’ve been shot.

His backside hit the ground with such force that he could feel the rough asphalt as it dug into his flesh.

Something warm spread over his torso. He touched it and looked at his bloodied hand. The toothpick fell from his lips as his head hit the asphalt.

Feet pounded.

People were yelling.

He wished they’d shut up.
