After years of questions, Angelina Marlowe was finally starting to uncover her family's secret. Her birth parents were dead, murdered by a ruthless consortium of powerful men, and the couple who'd raised Angelina had tried desperately to hide her true identity. It was too dangerous for anyone to know that the heiress to the vast Marlowe fortune was still alive.
Now, determined to put the shattered pieces of her past together, Angelina finds herself in the maze of danger and corruption that is her legacy. But she's not alone.
Hawk Bladehunter, a key player at Marlowe Inc., has long had his own suspicions about what lurks behind the company's facade. And now he must also decide where Angelina's loyalties lie. Drawn together in their common pursuit of the truth, they soon find themselves in a deadly showdown of greed, power, and murder -- and the odds against them have just doubled.
