Detective Lila Day is sent back in time to investigate the murder of software magnate Jack Warrren and clear the name of her sister, who was accused of the crime, but Lila makes a discovery which forces her to confront the truth about her sister and her own past.
In exclusive Star Island, Miami, blood isn’t always thicker than water . . . The second book in a thrilling time traveling mystery series featuring a former Miami PD who solves murders before they happen—by going back in time.
The night of his fiftieth birthday, software billionaire Jack Warren went missing hundreds of miles out to sea, his blood spattered aboard his yacht, his body gone. His mistress, Ava Day, was charged with his murder—but she had already vanished without a trace.
Now, ten years later, detective Lila Day still refuses to believe that her sister is a cold-blooded killer. To clear Ava’s name and solve this long-cold case, Lila asks her friend Teddy Hawkins to do what he has done before—send her back to time, to solve the crime before it takes place.
And so she goes back to 2008, with only a month to prove her sister’s innocence and bring Warren’s real killer to justice. But as she dives ever deeper into the world of high-speed yachting and corporate intrigue, and the night of Warren’s birthday draws ever closer, the truth becomes murkier than ever. And then Lila discovers information that shocks her deeply—a terrible truth that changes everything she thought she knew about her sister, and herself.
Traveling back in time to prevent a murder that implicated her sister, Lila Day immerses herself in the worlds of high-speed yachting and corporate intrigue only to discover shocking truths. By the author of The Rich and the Dead. Original. 25,000 first printing.
