Geri’s damaged son Tal is haunted by his father’s death, but who can he turn to and trust when everyone’s a suspect? Plus few, if any, will mourn Geri’s death.

To honour this heroic debt Ophelia was raised to continue the family vow of secretly protecting the Neilson family, even if it risks her life and those of others. She’s been trained to kill. But will Ophelia help out of duty or love?
And thus a bitter fight ensues between loyalty and betrayal, addiction and independence, ambition and love. Can she find the murderer and bring them to justice? Can Tal ever meet Geri’s expectations?
