Bestselling author Denise Hamilton dives into her Russian heritage in this fifth installment of the Eve Diamond series, as Eve uncovers the details of the murder of a scientist’s teenage son in the most dangerous—and personal—story of her career.
Los Angeles’ Russian community is about to pull Los Angeles Times reporter Eve Diamond, herself the daughter of Russian immigrants, into a stunning spiral of danger and intrigue.
After Eve discovers the body of an émigré scientist’s teenage son in Griffith Park, unraveling the execution-style shooting has her working on a story closer to her own personal history than ever before.
Eve steps into the crossfire between old and new worlds, where an enigmatic Cold War spy lures her on, an underworld killer warns her not to go any deeper, and a charming stranger that claims to be her cousin is potentially drawing her into the sights of a brilliant, vengeful killer.
