Summary

National best-selling author Kiki Swinson amps up the action and suspense with unpredictable characters, breakneck twists, and a gut-punch portrait of Southern surviving - and dying. Now the odds are straight-up killer when a private eye gets in way over her head....

Too much to prove....
A former journalist with a knack for unraveling dirty secrets, Khloe Mercer figures if she's going to risk her life, she might as well make big money as a private investigator. But this reckless newbie needs a major case to make her name - and really show she can handle Norfolk, Virginia's toughest streets.... 

Too much to hide....
When a narcotics detective's widow needs someone to investigate her disgraced husband's so-called suicide, Khloe jumps at the lucrative fee - and the clues that the Norfolk Police Department is rotten from top to bottom. And with formidable backup from her ex-felon uncle, she turns the city upside-down to uncover the truth....

Too late to run....
But Khloe's cage-rattling tactics and high-wire strategies threaten both the cops and the city's brutal underworld alike. Now, with her life in the crosshairs and no one she can trust, she'll find that building a reputation comes with a price she may not survive to pay....

Disappointed 😞

This story could have been great if only the writer would have put more effort in completing the plots rather than all the twist and turns with no ending. What happened to the uncle, did he get out or not? What happened to the neighbor that snitched? Did Tommy boy find out the uncle lied about the money? Did the uncles girlfriend find out he f$#@ the neighbor? Did they get any money out of it all? Like come on, all these openings with no closure at all

OMG..I want more.

I did not think the book was going to grab me like it did. I only read it because I am a Kiki Swinson fan and of course she didnt let me down. I am waiting with baited breath for the next installment. Please hurry.
