Twelve years ago, Alyssa Rossi fled Louisiana under a cloud of scandal and criminal accusations. But her self-imposed exile in Italy comes to an abrupt end when she has to return to New Orleans for the sale of her jewelry company to an international conglomerate. There, she comes face-to-face with Clay Duvall, the duplicitous lover who betrayed her. TriTech CEO Jake Williams has no inkling that the employee behind his company's acquisition of Rossi Designs is a man obsessed with its owner. Now a murder shockingly close to home raises the stakes as a fiendishly orchestrated plot could cast suspicion on Alyssa again—or make her a killer's final victim.
