Single mother Amy Parkens feels trapped by a boring job, low pay, and no time for her young daughter. But that's before $200,000 in cold, hard cash arrives in an unmarked box. Desperately needing the money, Amy fears a setup, or a connection to her mother's suicide twenty years earlier. So she sets out to find the source.
A decent, responsible small-town doctor, Ryan Duffy didn't expect to inherit a fortune from his electrician father, who had millions stashed away in the attic. Did it come from extortion, robbery, or some other terrible crime? Painful as it is, Ryan is drawn to his father's dark past, determined to find the truth.
Desperate for answers, Amy and Ryan soon cross paths on a dangerous quest that takes them through a labyrinth of deception and blackmail-- leading them to a man of unfathomable power who holds the key to their fortunes . . . and their lives.

1 . Disappointing second book
Posted October 30, 2009 by Diana , San DiegoThis is the second book I have read by this author. The first was pleasant. This is one of those books where the author makes the main characters do/say/think really stupid things....until they make enough mistakes to build the plot of the book.
Then all of a sudden they get un-stupid. I never did 'get' why the main quest or question of the plot was so all fired important to the characters. Important enough to get shot at and put an entire family in jeapordy? Nah.
So after they have messed everything up and gotten everyone else running around in circles, they become smart enough and clever enough to solve the whole thing.
I skipped 100 pages at time after the middle of the book and didn't miss a thing
