Tobias Mead is rich, handsome, and charming-a popular combination with the ladies in New York City's high-end clubs. But the night he meets Penélope, everyone else ceases to exist. Their attraction is immediate and intense.
When Penélope's body is discovered in a nearby park, Tobias is devastated-and then terrified. The police accuse him of murder, and his face is plastered on every news outlet in the city. If that's not bad enough, it turns out that Penélope was romantically involved with Antonio Cabrera, the volatile heir of a dangerous Central American drug cartel. Now the family wants revenge, as well as something valuable that Penélope may have left with an unsuspecting Tobias.
Everyone shoots to kill, and Tobias is caught in the crossfire as New York City explodes into terrifying violence. The only person he can trust is Annabel, a woman as lethal as she is beautiful. But with this many enemies, even her impressive firepower may not be enough.
As the bodies pile up, Tobias has just one card left up his sleeve. Although he's sworn he would never use it, he might not have a choice.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The book starts off right away getting your attention and keeps you on your seat. A great thriller/mystery story about New York, the Mafia, and the drug world with a lot of twists and turns. It starts off with playboy, good looking Tobias Mead falling for Penelope and when she is found dead the next , nothing is ever the same for Tobias especially since he is the obvious suspect. The story follows Tobias and Annebelle as they try to stay ahead of everyone trying to catch up to them. It has a lot of different angles and I wasn’t expecting the outcome. I felt the author did a good job developing t he characters and bringing everything together at the end. I look forward to reading his works again. I did receive this copy for a review but it didn’t influence me at all.
