Abstract:

Cop -turned-struggling P.I. Tamara Hayle is a hardworking sister with bills to pay and a teenage son to raise. So when Lincoln Story-the richest, rudest black man in the county-offers her big bucks to dig up the dirt on his stepdaughter's lover, Tamara gladly agrees, even though said lover once broke her heart. But then Storey drops dead at his own fancy fundraiser-right before Tamara's very eyes. And before she knows it, ties of loyalty and friendship have dragged her deep into a lethal world of treachery and dangerous ambitions, where everybody has a nasty little secret and is better off with Lincoln Story dead.
