Violet Gardner Beauregard is barely cold in her grave, but she’s still stirring up trouble. When Neely Kate Coulson accompanies her best friend Rose to Violet’s attorney for the reading of the will, they get the shock of their lives, one that leaves them both reeling.
If that weren’t enough, Special Prosecutor Mason Devereaux is still calling witnesses for his grand jury, digging into the corruption in Fenton County. Neely Kate is approached by an unexpected source who reveals shocking news from the grand jury testimony—information about her wayward husband, Ronnie Coulson. And just as all the dust starts flying, Kate Simmons sashays back into town.
Kate presents an opportunity Neely Kate finds hard to resist—the chance to find out why a Dallas crime syndicate wants the bag of money Neely Kate took from a man she’d killed in self defense years ago.
With Kate involved, there’s a catch. Kate will only tell her what she wants to know if Neely Kate leaves town with her. Immediately.
Can Neely Kate afford to take the risk? Can she afford not to?
