Publisher's Summary

A convicted killer. A gifted thief. A vicious crime boss. A disillusioned cop.

Together, they're a missing girl's only hope.

Blair Harbour, once a wealthy, respected surgeon in Los Angeles, is now an ex-con down on her luck. She's determined to keep her nose clean to win back custody of her son. 

But when her former cellmate, Sneak Lawlor, begs for help to find her missing daughter, Blair is compelled to put her newfound freedom on the line. Joined by LA's most feared underworld figure, Ada Maverick, the crew of criminals bring outlaw tactics to the search for Dayly. 

Detective Jessica Sanchez has always had a difficult relationship with the LAPD. And her inheritance of a $7 million mansion as a reward for catching a killer has just made her police enemy number one.

It's been 10 years since Jessica arrested Blair for the cold-blooded murder of her neighbour. So when Jessica opens the door to the disgraced doctor and her friends she expects abuse, maybe even violence. 

What comes instead is a plea for help.

AMAZING!

I absolutely loved this story and the sensational narration. I have only just discovered Candice Fox and can't wait to download my next book. The story had me hooked from start to finish. I really hope there can be a sequel one day as I became so attached to the characters. 10/10 would recommend.

struggled to finish

I always finish a book no matter how bad but this one was difficult. the story was ok but the narration was difficult to take. there were also bits that I thought were unnecessary and made me dislike the story more. I wouldn't recommend this one
