When Emily Masterson wakes up in a strange bed with a dead man, she does the only thing she can think to do. She calls the one man who can help her. A man who betrayed her years ago--the only man she's ever loved.
Gideon Sloan might be in the business of helping people, he just never thought one of them would be Emily. After using all his resources to help her, he swears never to see her again, but a second attempt on her life leaves him racing against a clock to keep her alive.
Even as the killer circles closer, passion reignites, but secrets from the past threaten to destroy their fragile truce. Only together can they find answers and--if they survive--a second chance at love.

I know Dee Davis can write excellent books but vastly preferred her "Random Heroes" books, especially "Just Breathe"! These were intelligent mysteries with excellent character development and honest suspense. This was shallow & predictable compared to the earlier books. Bring back the quality please!
I have always loved Ms Davis’s stories, and this one reinforced my admiration of her as an author. Fade to Gray is not for the faint of heart. The book is filled with a couple of major complex plots and a few sub-plots as well, which at the end come together not only in an explosive way, but also in a resolution of them all. The major characters are Emily and GIdeon. Emily comes from a wealthy family, has a dominating , manipulative father and seems to still be trying to find herself, even though she is in her late 20s. Gideon, now owner of a “security/investigation” company was wronged by Emily and her father 10 years ago. Both Emily and GIdeon were lied to and left to pick up their pieces never seeing each other again. Until Emily makes a desperate call to Gideon . From that point on, the story is filled with intrigue, murder, lies, misunderstandings,, Russian mafia, dysfunctional families, old grudges , bag guys, good guys , and last but not least , a complex romance. My wish is that this book becomes part of a series. I can see great stories for Gideon’s friends Ryder and Declan as well as detective Logan. I was gifted this copy. The opinions expressed are solely my own.
