When Detective Sergeant Aidan Whitley and Detective Jeri Laurent fell in love, she mentioned her past. How an affair with a married ex-California police captain went so bad that she fled to New Jersey. That doesn’t matter to him until he intercepts a drug shipment and the truck has California plates. Next day, Jeri’s father, a California Deputy Attorney General, calls and invites them to a family reunion. Once there, Aidan finds he’s in a fight to the death—Jeri’s ex-lover wants her back. Aidan’s unsure which man she’d choose. The question may be moot if he doesn’t survive.
