By April Lindgren
How far will a reporter go to get her story when a politician is viciously murdered?
When Pia Keyne, a feisty political reporter, becomes entertainment editor at a large urban newspaper she finds herself embroiled in the vicious murder of a high-profile politician. Pia quickly uncovers sexual overtones to the killing, as well as a possible cover-up of Nazi stolen art. The ink might just run red when Pia's involvement draws the attention of the murderer. And will she be putting her life at risk? Or just her heart?
What starts out as a simple headline story quickly turns into something more dangerous. Having spent years trying to overcome the painful secrets of her own past, Pia Keyne must now choose who to trust, who to love, and who to track down as a possible source—for her story, and for murder.
