In this twisted tale of love, crime, and family gone wrong, Dominique Monaghan wants to get even with her two-timing, married boyfriend, but an elaborate blackmail scheme soon lands her in the middle of an unexpected kidnapping... and attempted murder. Dominique’s big brother, Desmond Edgars, wants to help Dominique, but digs himself deeper into a tangled web of murder and deception, involving a family fortune, a couple of shifty lawyers, and a missing child, while wrestling with his own bloody secrets.
