New York: Bantam, (2002) dj. SIGNED hardcover first edition - Thriller set in Florida: "the story of an ex-cop, a missing girl, and a killer locked in a race where there can be only one winner - and the losers die trying. . . The wealthy world of the Palm Beach horse set seems a long way from a cop's world in the narcotics division. A lifetime ago, undercover sheriff's detective Elena Estes worked the mean streets and BackTop alleys, living by her wits and playing the long odds until she took one risk too many. Now Estes lives on the ragged edge of lost hope and self-hatred, hiding from the past and believing she doesn't deserve to have a future." SIGNED on the title page. 435 pp. ISBN: 0-553801929.
