The wife of the White House deputy chief of staff has been beaten to death, and their one-year-old daughter is missing. D.C. Police Lieutenant Sam Holland is in charge of the murder investigation, but she's forced to collaborate with Special Victims Unit detectives as well as thorn-in-her-side FBI Special Agent Avery Hill. Then, a cold case of her father's resurrects old hurts—a distraction Sam cannot afford.
As Sam's investigation heats up, so does Nick's political career—and the heat carries over to their bedroom. Will Sam put the pieces together in time to catch a killer and find the baby, or will ambition, greed and lies prove fatal?

'You don't have to decide anything until you're ready.'
'Well, we have to decide something or practice abstinence until we do.'
'I do not know this word of which you speak.'"

"Happy to oblige, even if the cross-pollination of my world and Nick's world continues to give me hives."
~ Sam Holland to Lindsey McNamara
