Each one was handcuffed and killed, execution style, by a bullet to the back of the head. This could be the story that makes Robin's career-but she can't stop thinking about the families of the victims. FBI agent Ben Taylor isn't a team player and doesn't trust the media.

As unwanted desire flares, Ben must protect Robin from cold-blooded killers determined to keep the true story from ever seeing the light of day.
