Joanna Grey injects the deadly poison into the chamber of the syringe—time after time. She’s murdered before and she’ll do it again. She’s intelligent, educated, and beautiful. She could be your neighbor, your lawyer—or the one conducting your autopsy.
At thirty-five, Rylee Hayes is a respected homicide detective. She has a condo on the Southside of Chicago. Her best friends are her grandparents, her coonhound, and her partner—in that order. She’s about ready to give up on the idea of a relationship. She hasn’t seen the love of her life, Kenzie Bigham, since college.
At thirty-four, Kenzie Bigham is the single mom of a thirteen-year-old, a church secretary, and a woman who’s struggled much of her adult life with her own sexuality. She may have been the one who walked away, but she’s never stopped loving Rylee.
Their paths will cross when Rylee’s new investigation involves members of Kenzie’s congregation. They’ll discover that the passage of time may have offered them a second chance at love—just as Joanna sights her next target. Will Rylee have what it takes to meet the challenge of a serial killer who’s proven herself to be a more than worthy opponent?
