“4 Stars. Matthews handles complex family dynamics, psychotic characters and the destruction of a criminal empire with deft strokes.”
~RT Book Reviews
When the call came in over the radio, Sheriff’s Deputy Rafe Franco thought he would be responding to a typical domestic dispute. But he didn’t know that the perp was St. Louis’s most notorious mobster—or that the victim was his college sweetheart, Lisa Tobin.
Now, as Rafe is drawn into a web of crime and danger, he discovers that his feelings for Lisa are stronger than ever. And her three-year-old daughter, Chloe, is melting his heart in ways he’d never imagined possible. But Lisa’s ex is a powerful sociopath who will stop at nothing to get her back—or destroy her. As Rafe’s instincts as a man battle with his duty as a cop, he’ll do anything to ensure their survival…and their future as a family.
