Every crime has its price, but for one woman, the cost may be too high
Elena Vargas is a material witness to a homicide, the shooting of a foot soldier in an international mob cartel. But the sultry call girl and sometime-mistress of gang lord Enzo Giardino claims to have seen and heard nothing.
Desperate to make a case against Giardino, the district attorney offers Vargas protective custody in exchange for betraying her lover. But no one can make her talk. The case blows sky high when a ledger is discovered, naming names and detailing the operations of a criminal enterprise that stretches to the highest levels of government.
Going on nothing but gut instinct, New York Police Department cop Christie Opara uncovers something in Vargas’s past that could give them the leverage they need. It’s a secret that will reverberate in both women’s lives as Christie edges closer to the truth about a mother and child . . . and an answer that has been there all along.
