Worse, they have a new partner in crime, a canny and disarming lawyer named Beck Merchant. When the police determine that her brother's suicide was, in fact, a homicide, tensions threaten to ignite a powder keg of old hatreds, past crimes, and a surprising plan of revenge. Now Sayre must battle with her family-and with her emotions over her love/hate relationship with Beck ... a man with his own secret agenda.
