(From the publisher):
The Lincoln Question. It sounded so innocent. Lincoln was a great president, a great man, a symbol of freedom and fairness and a beacon of hope in a terrible time.
Unfortunately for Amos Walker, the question bearing the name of the Emancipator was nothing at all like its namesake. It was an incredibly painful, potentially maiming torture that had already half-blinded a man with too much character to break under its agony.
Is Amos Walker ready to be that brave - or foolish? Are the secrets of Gilia Cristobal worth risking hideous pain and possibly worse? Walker had gotten himself into a situation that he never wanted, first providing protection for the gorgeous, platinum-selling, popular Latina singer, and then doing her a favor. He ought to know that the kind of favor she asked of him is just the kind of trap that hardly ever leads to anything good, and frequently has hidden pitfalls, sometimes fatal ones.
Gilia seems to be exactly what she claims: bright, talented, blonde-bombshell of a singer who has worked very hard to surmount the pinnacle of popular acclaim while maintaining her artistic integrity and her ideals. He ought to know better. There's nobody that perfect. Gilia is just too good to be true.
For starters, she's not really Gilia, and that's just the tip of a deadly iceberg of lies that threatens to sink him. If he doesn't answer the Lincoln Question, his end will come by fire, not ice.
