Sandra Brown, the #1 New York Times bestselling author, thrills
readers as never before with a tale of an obsessed criminal and the
woman who refuses to be his victim….As dedicated a juror as
she is a surgeon, Rennie Newton votes not guilty in the murder
trial of hit man Ricky Lozada-and makes the biggest mistake of her
life. Soon after the acquittal her professional rival is brutally
murdered. The prime suspect? Dr. Rennie Newton. Even more
terrifying, Lozada now seems consumed with possessing her and dares
to invade every aspect of her life. She forms an uneasy alliance
with Wick Threadgill, a rogue detective she's not sure she can
trust, a man with his own mysterious agenda. The two know only one
thing for certain. This killer is like one of his prize scorpions:
When he strikes, Rennie and Wick won't see it coming...
