Down in Mexico on a business trip, Dillon Bryant is obsessed with thoughts of his wife, Laura, a striking blonde he's known for a matter of just weeks. After a blissful three-day honeymoon, being away from her is like torture—especially once word reaches him that she's in deep trouble. But Dillon returns home to New Orleans too late: Laura is dead . . . and the police are of little help in finding her killer. Craving revenge of the most violent sort, Dillon begins his own investigation into Laura's last days—and her dubious past. He soon finds that the truth behind this web of lies is more fantastic than he ever could have imagined—and more sinister than he could have feared.
