Police lieutenant Julian Palmer is baffled by her latest case-a case that dredges up painful childhood memories of her own father's unsolved murder. She's tracking the killer of a respected family man-the last person anyone would want dead. Haunted by the ghosts of the past, Julian is determined not to let another killer go unpunished and she will do whatever it takes to see justice served this time around even if it means jeopardizing her career-and her life... With no suspects, the only remote clue she has as to the identity of the killer is a mysterious, exotic flower left on his coffin at the funeral. Desperate for answers, Julian turns to the one person she fears most, former police chief Winston "the Bear" Edwards. Once her brilliant mentor, he was the first man Julian arrested for murder-and the same man who tried to kill her. Now, in a cat and mouse game, Julian and her old mentor engage in a battle of wits-where death is the only outcome if she can't stay one step ahead. But Julian isn't prepared for the twisted trail this investigation will take her on-or the string of lies that will lead to the most devastating consequences of all...
