Eddie Mackey was busy defending his country when his wife supposedly committed suicide. A year later, he has a new mission: finding her murderer. The perfect starting point is the New York City photojournalist who filmed his wife’s last words.
Except Miranda Hill won’t betray the secrets of the dead, especially when she has to protect the living. Not to mention, a terrifying accident left her with PTSD and enough danger to last a lifetime. The last thing she needs is a determined marine jeopardizing her hard-won stability.
When Eddie’s investigation nearly costs Miranda her life, he adds protecting the gorgeous woman to the wrongs he must right. Sparks fly, even as it becomes clear they are embroiled in something far more sinister than they’d imagined. But higher stakes soon erode the tenuous trust Eddie and Miranda have built. With a killer determined to bury them, the only way to win is to dig deep—both inside and out—to uncover the truth and expose evil.
