Alicia "Ace" Miller has always had a somewhat contentious, arms-length relationship with Las Vegas Detective Cree Bradley. She likes their level of engagement exactly where it is - non-existent, never any occasion to cross paths.<br /><br />Until she needs his help.<br /><br />Only the most powerful of emotions - paired with fractured memories and the unshakeable feeling that something is missing - can make Alicia seek assistance from a man whose very presence puts her on edge. However, with lives at stake, her family on the line, and a chance at filling in the blanks of her past on the verge of slipping through her fingers, her choices are limited.<br /><br />He's the perfect person to have by her side.<br /><br />Cree Bradley takes his job seriously - protect and serve. Somewhere along the way, he's realized that for many of his peers, those lines have been blurred to the point of no return... destroying his own ability to walk the straight and narrow.<br /><br />Sometimes, that means walking the wrong way to do the right thing.<br /><br />This time?<br /><br />It means stepping through the looking glass, out of the bright lights of the strip and into a world where you don't know who to trust, danger lurks around every corner, and long-buried secrets are alive and well.<br /><br />Every twist, every turn, every<i>one</i> is... a wild card, in a game where the price of losing might be death, and the only way to win... is to show each other their hands.<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />

When Robin Matheson’s husband is killed in Afghanistan, she finds herself suddenly alone: an outsider in a community grieving for the hometown hero it never really knew. Though the thought of spending the rest of her life without Tavis is exhausting, Robin has no choice but to pull herself together for the sake of their son. She finds some satisfaction in cutting ties with Tav’s obnoxious best friend, Cyril—a 500-pound hacker who didn’t even bother to come to the funeral.<br /><br />Unfortunately, her three-year-old decides Cyril is now <i>his</i> best buddy, and Robin can’t bear to take anything else away from her son. A few hot dogs and video games won’t do any permanent damage… right?<br /><br />Cyril doesn’t magically transform into a good person—or even a decent one—but he does prove to be a better role model than Robin expected. Gradually, she also begins to realize that Cyril may be the one person who truly understands the magnitude of her loss. <br /><br />He also knows far more about her husband’s death than he’s been letting on.<br /><br />Ramsey Hootman’s trademark blend of humor and heart shines in this offbeat tale of love, loss, and exasperation—guaranteed to leave you breathless at the end.
