Boston Police Detective Harry Jordan has a problem. Three problems, really--three grisly murders, all young college women in New England. Instinct tells him he has a serial murderer on his hands, but without a trail of evidence, he has nowhere to go with his suspicions. Enter Mallory Mallone, cool, beautiful, and famous, the TV Detective, whose highly rated show takes up the cases of forgotten murder victims and helps bring their killers to justice. Jordan has called Mallone in an uncharacteristic plea for help with this case. He's prepared for her disdain, and for her air of superiority. But he's not prepared for the electric attraction between them. Nor does he expect her well-hidden vulnerability to be exposed so soon. For there's a secret in Mallory's past that eludes even the keenest police detective. Especially when he's about to discover that the murderer he seeks is closer than he thinks.

She can keep the doors locked. The lights on. Her fingers crossed. But she can't stop the memories of a terrifying crime. Or keep it from happening again.

The murderer took his time choosing his pretty victims. Then he took his time killing them. What was left when he finished made even veteran Boston cop Harry Jordan feel sick. But this time the killer made a mistake. His victim was found alive.

Armed with a police sketch of the man, Harry wanted national publicity, the kind he could get from Mallory Malone, the "TV detective." Her top-rated show reenacted heinous crimes and often jogged witnesses' memories enough to shake loose the clue that could break the case.

But not this time.

This case was different for self-made career woman Mallory Malone. This cop was different. The case scared her; the cop was falling in love with her. Her instincts told her to run. But the killer already knew her name. Her address. And a secret that could destroy them both.

Elizabeth Adler was born in Yorkshire, England. She is married to an American lawyer and has one daughter. They have lived in Brazil, England, France, and Ireland and currently live in California. She is the internationally acclaimed author of Léonie, Peach, The Rich Shall Inherit, The Property of a Lady, Fortune Is a Woman, and The Secret of the Villa Mimosa.

From the Paperback edition.
