Unconventional, reform-minded heiress Francesca Cahill has earned a reputation as an effective amateur sleuth, primarily through her work with New York City police commissioner Rick Bragg. Asked to look into the disappearance of young Emily O'Hare, Francesca discovers that Emily is not the only pretty girl who has gone missing in the last year. Unfortunately, Francesca's partnership with Rick has now become complicated since not only has Rick's former wife returned to him, but Francesca has recently received an offer of marriage from Calder Hart, Rick's wealthy half-brother and longtime rival. While trying to unsnarl her tangled romantic interests, Francesca finds she must rely on both Rick and Calder if she is to have any chance at finding the abducted girls. The sixth in a series picks up Francesca's story after the unexpected proposal she received in Deadly Love (2001), and Joyce expertly manipulates Francesca's deeply conflicted feelings for two very different men into an elegant blend of mystery and romance simmering with sexual tension.
