With his new family caught in the crossfire, Jake Bryant races to stop the criminal mastermind who orchestrated the murder of his best friend from striking again. ***** A mere three weeks before his wedding to Mary Morgan, Jake Bryant is confronted with horrifying news: his best friend's mistress has been kidnapped and killed by Edward, the same criminal mastermind who orchestrated the murder of Mary's husband and Jake's best friend. Worse still, Jake learns that Edward is on the hunt for any evidence that may incriminate him in decades worth of illegal activity -- evidence that Mary has, in the form of a confession letter Tom wrote her before he died. Desperate to protect the letter and use its secrets to bring a dangerous criminal to justice, Jake must gamble with the lives of those he loves in order to find the evidence against Edward that Tom left behind. But with allies double-crossing him left and right, will Jake discover who he can trust before it's too late? [[word count: 70,000-80,000 words]]
