For Kip Barrett, a secret commission from her boss’s boss’s boss, CEO Tamara Sterling, shows that the respect she’s earned for her integrity and intelligence as a fraud investigator is justified. All she has to do is what she’s done successfully before: Follow the cyber-trail, find the high-tech thief, and document it so that justice prevails.
This time, however, the embezzler is one of their own. Sterling Fraud Investigations has an unblemished reputation for ethical conduct and security. Kip must find out who and how, as soon as possible, and no one but Tamara can know what she’s doing.
As Kip gets closer to discovering the embezzler, her clandestine meetings with Tamara grow more frequent. It doesn’t help that her admiration for Sterling’s work is compounded by an undeniable physical chemistry. But SFI has an iron-clad no fraternization rule, and Sterling investigators never break the rules. She needs to wrap up her findings before anyone—including her emerging prime suspect Tamara Sterling—realizes Kip is not above temptation.
Follow the passion—and the money—from Seattle to Nassau in the latest page-turning story from Lambda Literary award-winning author Karin Kallmaker.
