Former cop Frankie O’Neil’s best friend has just taken a high dive out of a plane–without a chute. He’d been working with a couple of cops, Hill and Fetterman, to figure out a complicated scheme involving a shady business at a financial services company. Using a computer system to hide what’s been going on, the police needed help to figure out their scheme. With O’Neil’s friend gone, they turn to him as a replacement. The trouble is, O’Neil doesn’t trust anybody except his young protégé, and together they set out to find out who was really responsible for what happened to Tim Clayton. There’s money involved, and lots of it. When O’Neil’s wife is suddenly taken, he has no choice but to unravel the tangled skein of corruption and missing money made possible by a mix of old-fashioned corruption and a new breed of high-tech criminal.
A captured killer implicates an impossible suspect. A cop’s career is ruined. When James Robinson abruptly leaves the force, he walks away from law enforcement forever, disgraced publicly and privately, his life in complete shambles. Or so he thinks. Years later, another killer is caught, and when lovely reporter Sabrina Wells seeks his help, Robinson won’t even listen. Until she shows him a note in his own handwriting, tying him to a victim he’d long since thought put to rest. Haunted by a promise from his past, Robinson and Sabrina travel north to Baker County, Florida, where they uncover a nest of seemingly unconnected murders. Or are they? Past and present come together in a sweltering mix of passion and murder. Can Robinson escape the sins of his past and catch a killer, or killers, in the process? Or will he himself fall victim to a stalker who knows more about him than he ever dreamed?
