With two murders to stop, and thirty-eight lives still in the balance, Rembrandt must play his hand against time just right if he wants to win his future. Play it wrong and his life will stay shattered beyond repair.
What sacrifices will he have to make to come home to his wife and daughter?
The stakes have never been higher in the heart-wrenching, edge-of-your-seat fifth story of the True Lies of Rembrandt Stone.
BOOKS IN THIS SERIES
A shot fires behind me. The front glass door shatters.
I scramble off Booker and glance in the back.
The perp bursts through the door, into the night.
I’m instantly on my feet and running hard to the door in false pursuit.
The getaway car has taken off, the taillights fading as it rounds the end of the strip mall, into the night.
Muffled sobbing, a hiccup of sound emerges from the office and I fear what I’ll find.
The desk lamp splashes wan light into the room. A floor safe is open, the contents—mostly paper—spilled onto the floor.
The sounds come from under the desk. I walk over, then crouch and finally hit my hands and knees. “Jin-Sun?”
She’s young—maybe nine years old, with big brown eyes and dark hair. She’s sitting with her knees pulled to her chest, making herself small.
“You’re safe.” I keep my voice soft, gentle, a remnant of time when I was a father to a seven-year-old daughter. My throat thickens at the flash of memory, my Ashley sitting on her bed, her blue eyes thick with tears as she implores me to find Gomer, a silly bear I gave her for her fourth birthday. But Daddy, you’re a detective. You know how to find things..
I do, honey. And I’m going to find you, I promise.
I hold out my hand to Jin-Sun. “Come out. No one will hurt you.”
She stares at my offering, and then places her hand in mine. It’s soft, but she hangs on and I pull her out of the darkness. She stands before me, and then throws her arms around me.
My breath rushes out of me and I can’t help but wrap an arm around her, bracing myself with the other hand on the desk. “Everything is going to be okay,” I whisper, and the words sink into me.
