First as a reporter and then as a PI, Tess Monaghan has learned how to survive and thrive on the streets of Baltimore. But a new case will force her to confront her own past, and a man she loved and lost. The answers lie far from Baltimore, deep in a world of good-time music, old-fashioned ambition, and rich people's games.
