In her gripping novels, New York Times bestselling author
Carla Neggers combines action, intrigue, romance and
adventure like no one else . . .
Archaeologist Sarah Dunnemore is prepared for almost
anything when she returns to her family home in Night's
Landing, Tennessee . . .except the news that her twin
brother, Rob, has just been seriously wounded in a sniper
attack in Central Park. She rushes to New York to be with
him, only to come up against no-nonsense Nate Winter, who
was slightly wounded in the attack.
In his work as a deputy U.S. marshal, Nate is the best, but
he's willing to break the rules to track down his and Rob's
would-be killer. Nate believes the official investigation
is going in the wrong direction -- especially when he
learns that Sarah is like a surrogate daughter and
confidante to her family's famous Night's Landing neighbor -
- the president of the United States.
When Nate suspects that Sarah has held back crucial
information, he follows her to Night's Landing. Because
Nate will let nothing -- not his and Sarah's growing
attraction for each other, not the mounting danger they
face -- stand in the way of the truth. But in a place
filled with betrayal, greed and long-held secrets, truth is
guarded with a deadly vengeance.
