Number-one New York Times best-selling author Sidney Sheldon's most popular and enduring heroine - Tracy Whitney of If Tomorrow Comes - returns in a sensational sequel full of passion, suspense, and breathtaking twists.
Once upon a time, Tracy Whitney made the people who destroyed her family account for their sins. Now someone is looking for payback....
Tracy Whitney never thought she wanted to settle down. With her suave and handsome partner, Jeff Stevens, she'd been responsible for some of the world's most astounding heists, relishing the danger and intensity of life on the wild side. Together, she and Jeff have made enough money for several lifetimes conning the rich, corrupt, and greedy out of their ill-gotten fortunes. But there is still one thing missing from Tracy's perfect life: a baby.
At first, "going straight" feels like a new adventure. Tracy makes plans for a family, while Jeff indulges his passion for antiquities working at the British Museum. But as the months pass and Tracy's longed-for pregnancy doesn't happen, she finds herself yearning for the adrenaline rush of the old days. When a mysterious and beautiful stranger enters their lives, Tracy and Jeff's once unbreakable partnership is suddenly blown wide open. Jeff wakes one morning to find Tracy gone, vanished without a trace.
For more than a decade, a broken Jeff struggles to carry on knowing Tracy is out there somewhere. But the rest of the world believes Tracy Whitney is dead - until a series of murders leads a tenacious French detective to her doorstep. Eleven victims, in ten different cities, over nine years - all bearing the hallmarks of the same killer. Madrid, Lima, London, Chicago, Buenos Aires, Hong Kong, New York, Mumbai - all the cities where Tracy pulled off some of her most brilliant capers. Someone is targeting her, manipulating a series of disturbing events and raising terrifying ghosts she thought were dead and buried. Once again, this clever woman finds herself out on the edge, playing the odds in a desperate game of roulette. But this time she's got everything to lose - including the man she cannot forget.
Jeff Stevens saved Tracy's life once. Now it's her chance to return the favor. To stop a devious enemy hidden in the shadows, she will need to dig deeper than she's ever gone before, to put her trust in some unlikely allies, and to find the strength and courage to defeat her rivals and protect everything she loves.
Tomorrow has come at last. But it isn't the future Tracy bargained for....
