From the master of romantic suspense and bestselling author of Friction and Ricochet comes a gripping story of passion, redemption, and love…with deadly consequences.

After five long years in federal prison, Griff Burkett is a free man. But the disgraced Cowboys quarterback can never return to the life he knew before he was caught cheating. In a place where football is practically a religion, Griff committed a cardinal sin, and no one is forgiving.

Foster Speakman, owner and CEO of SunSouth Airlines, and his wife, Laura, are a golden couple. Successful and wealthy, theirs was a charmed life before fate cruelly intervened and denied them the one thing they wanted most—a child. It’s said that money can’t buy everything. But it can buy a football player fresh out of prison and out of prospects.

The job Griff agrees to do for the Speakmans demands secrecy. But he soon finds himself once again in the spotlight of suspicion. An unsolved murder comes back to haunt him in the form of his nemesis, Stanley Rodarte, who has made Griff’s destruction his life’s mission. While safeguarding his new enterprise, Griff must also protect those around him, especially Laura Speakman, from Rodarte’s ruthlessness. Griff stands to gain the highest payoff he could ever imagine, but cashing in on it will require him to forfeit his only chance for redemption...and love.

Now Griff is playing a high-stakes game, and at the final whistle, one player will be dead. The clock is ticking and Griff’s future—his life—hinges on one last play.

    Sandra Brown never ceases to deliver a good story. This one is no exception. I love how she is able to combine mystery, suspense, and romance so seamlessly. All my favorite genres in one book! The characters are well-developed and come across as real. There are enough plot twists to keep the reader guessing till the end, and I appreciate the epilogue the finishes out the story in a satisfying way.
