When the early morning peace is shattered in the quiet suburban community of Valley Stream, New York, the fire department is dispatched to what appears to be a routine car fire. Shortly after their arrival, Al Petrone Jr., the son of the Chief of the department and a firefighter at the scene, is the first person to discover the woman in the back seat of the burning car. The woman who lay dead-mouth taped and hands bound together behind her back-was his neighbor Brenda Keegan. But Al has a dark secret that he doesn't want to disclose, especially to Detective John Lowery, a seasoned 30-year member of the Nassau County Homicide squad and the lead detective called to the scene. It will be his job to notify Brenda's husband, Kevin. Al can't let on that he knows the victim. As Lowery's investigation takes shape, he realizes that this case will go much deeper than he could have ever imagined. When evidence surfaces that confirms the existence of an international human smuggling ring, Lowery must seek assistance from an unlikely source: an inmate at the Bedford Hills Correctional center. When Lowery shows up at Kevin's job at S&S trucking to break the bad news to him, he is met by Nicole Sinclair, Kevin's mistress, who appears stunned by the news of Brenda's death. Until now, Kevin had it all: a beautiful wife and a sexy mistress. But Nicole has been pushing Kevin to choose between the two, and has grown tired of his indecisiveness. Her plan for them has been on hold long enough; she has found someone else to take Kevin's place. With the help from her new crush and the assistance of her good friend Donna, Nicole is sure her plan to lead the relaxed life she always desired-far away from S&S trucking-will come to fruition. However, it's up to Detective Lowery to make sure that doesn't happen. Did Nicole Sinclair have anything to do with Brenda's death? If so, Why? What secret prevented Al Jr. from informing the police that he knew Brenda? How does Nicole get mixed-up with an international human smuggling ring? What happens when Nicole's new boyfriend's name is finally revealed? The answers to all of these questions lie between the covers of this powerful new novel that will have readers turning pages and wanting to know more
