Kiki Swinson's "tension-packed" (Library Journal) and "unrelenting" (Publishers Weekly) best-selling novels deliver startling twists, unforgettable characters - and a stark, unforgettable portrait of life in the South. Now she detonates an explosive tale about a couple who can't get enough - and a risk that will exact a merciless price.
Nobody will get hurt: Dawn and Reese Spencer just can't get ahead. Between her desperate desire to start a family and his gambling debts, they barely keep afloat, even with well-paying Norfolk International port jobs. But their calculating co-worker has the perfect plan: help him smuggle containers of precious, illegal - human - cargo past US Customs.
Nobody will know: For Dawn, risking the innocent lives of undocumented immigrants is unthinkable. But Reese persuades her that no one will get hurt. And once things proceed without a hitch and a fortune starts rolling in, the Spencers are sure their dreams are about to come true.
Nobody will live to tell: Until several immigrants turn up dead on arrival. Until Reese bets more than he can ever repay. Now the Feds and cold-blooded loan sharks are closing in, as the real brains behind the operation start killing off loose ends. And between love, lies, and revenge, it's every betrayer for themselves - no matter how lethal the cost.
