Rebuilding is hard, especially when both hearth and heart have been badly wounded. Renovating her home after an explosion occupies most of Ari Adams’ time. Her heart remains unhealed—nine months later her former girlfriend, Molly Nelson, is still not speaking to her. Worst of all, that wound was self-inflicted.
Trying to move on, Ari turns to private investigator Biz Stone for solace. When her best friend Jane arrives with a disquieting story of a dead social worker and murky motives for murder in California, Ari naturally asks Biz to go with them. Molly, meanwhile, would do anything to prove that Biz is a lowlife who spiked Molly’s police career, murdered a witness and most definitely stole her girlfriend.
Betrayals of more than one kind form the tightening net of danger that surrounds Ari in this fourth installment of Ann Roberts’ critically acclaimed series.
Ann Roberts is also the author of Beacon of Love, which reflects her love of lighthouse, as well as mysteries and general fiction such as Keeping Up Appearances, which draws on her experience as someone deeply involved in the public school system.
This is book 4 of the Ari Adams mystery series. Earlier titles are Paid in Full, White Offerings and the Goldie finalist Deadly Intersections.
