Tamar Minella has a husband in a coma and three young children to support. As chief fundraiser for Senator Robert Smith, she arranges meetings with potential contributors, but somebody is killing the billionaires. Robert knows the FBI investigator, Dan Kenyon, from their Harvard days and does not trust him. Tamar finds herself the woman in the middle. Robert thinks of her as a sister, a surrogate for his real sister, killed in front of him by a car when they were children. Dan sees her as beautiful and seductive, and romancing her takes over his life. But she sees that Robert's suspicions might be correct; Dan appears to be a renegade cop. He and Robert have a long history, and for Dan to achieve whatever his plans are for Robert, she is the one who must die.
I was a ghostwriter for Paula Hawkins, U.S. Senator from Florida. I wrote articles under her name in newspapers throughout the country. Ballantine Books published my novella "Oceans Away" in Stellar Short Novels, edited by Judy-Lynn Del Rey. From that, I am a member of the Science Fiction Writers of America. I went for a Masters in creative writing at the University of Maryland and I participated in hundreds of writers' workshops. My day job is Beltway Bandit.
