(From the publisher):
Postal Inspector Allen Conyers and his temporary partner, police detective Cheryl Burroughs, are involved in a small Texas town shootout with a fugitive who has been hiding under the protection of the town's most successful prostitute, the beautiful black woman known as Darling Corey. When Cheryl kills the fugitive, Darling Corey disappears. Conyers and Cheryl struggle to find her in the hope that she will lead them to the mysterious shadowy criminal known as the Man who presides over rackets throughout Arkansas, Louisiana, and Texas.
Grisly deaths heighten the tension of the hunt, as Cheryl and Conyers begin to find in one another the trust and love that has so long been missing from their lives.
