Mardi Gras in the French Quarter. Madness rules. The perfect time for narcotics cop Burke Basile to avenge the acquittal of his partner's murderer by kidnapping the sleazy defense attorney's wife. The line between saint and sinner blurs in this seething tale of corruption and desire as a desperate man and a lonely woman find redemption -- or damnation -- on Fat Tuesday.
"Brown expertly pushes her story toward an explosive Mardi Gras conclusion. Brown's trademark mix of action and romance is on display in this suspenseful tale of revenge and corruption". -- Publishers Weekly
