Baker & Taylor
When a wealthy, powerful couple's sexual extravagance leads to the death of a young prostitute, New York detective Caroline Reese must overcome the blinding influence of her own past to solve the case. By the author of House Rules.

Blackwell North Amer
Business magnate Gabriel Santerre wields wealth and power with a cunning so sleek and savage that even his most violent passions have gone undetected - until now. Suspected of murdering a prostitute, Santerre and his wife, Ingrid, are taken into custody as they leave a posh Manhattan hotel. The two are separated for questioning, and Santerre swiftly secures immunity for himself by accusing his shaken and bewildered wife.
But Detective Caroline Reese refuses to accept Santerre's story. Haunted by Ingrid's bruised body and baffling words, Reese pushes until Ingrid gives up a name: Lynn Carver. Carver is alluring, enigmatic, and the one person who can reveal the truth about the Santerres, but only if Reese can win her trust. With time running out, with Gabriel Santerre maneuvering against her at every turn, Detective Caroline Reese is in for the race of her life.
