Review by Booklist Reviews

After her pro bono client, pressing a flash drive into her hand, is killed right in front of her, Paige Holden, rookie PI and martial arts expert, shares the drive with state attorney Grayson Smith, casting doubt on his conviction of the woman's husband. Together with Grayson, Paige, now in danger herself, uncovers a serial killer desperately trying to cover the tracks of decades-old acts of child sexual abuse which involve crooked cops. Ultimately, if predictably, Paige and Grayson fall for each other and are forced to reveal troubled backgrounds. With many twists and turns, this fast-paced romantic thriller, like all of Rose's books (e.g., I Can See You, 2009), is riveting to the last word. Copyright 2012 Booklist Reviews.

Review by Publishers Weekly Reviews

Bestseller Rose returns to Baltimore for this steamy follow-up to 2011's You Belong to Me. Fledgling PI Paige Holden and Assistant State's Attorney Grayson Smith start on opposite sides before becoming a formidable team delving into the deadly secrets behind a murder conviction. Holden hears the last words of a dying Elena Muñoz, who tells Holden cops were chasing her as she presses a flash drive into the PI's hands. Elena's husband, Ramon, a gardener, was framed for the murder of Crystal Jones during a party given by Rex McCloud at the estate of his grandfather, retired state senator James McCloud. Elena's evidence and an attempt on Holden's life prevented by Smith launch the pair on a mission for justice. Both Holden and Smith have carefully guarded secrets that keep their passions smoldering before bursting into flames. Rose's deft combination of hot heroine and cool hero should please her many fans.
