Read Excerpts -> Beginning and the Secret Epilogue!

West Texas gossip paints every story a more interesting shade, especially when a married man goes missing with the local banker’s wife and a stolen fortune. Susan Maddox is tired of feeling like an abandoned woman, and even angrier when neighbors act as if she’s the one getting away with murder. Maybe her handsome-as-sin, bad-boy brother-in-law is the smartest choice of ally, especially since she’s never been able to forget a star-studded night in his convertible back in high school. But who else can she trust to recover damning evidence from her husband’s crashed hard drive? Who else is there to pick up the pieces when intruders set fire to her home, a truck runs her off the road, and a trail of dead men stops her cold?

Who else can help her uncover a fatal error?
