She tried to leave her job, moving across country to Kingston, New York to settle into a quiet hiatus. When she meets friendly, sensual Tom, she delights in a new relationship with someone who truly seems to understand her.
But Tom has secret upon secret, and as Catherine soon learns, some of them are deadly. He is Thomas Ambrose, exiled scion of a monstrously corrupt and wealthy family, and his wealth and past aren’t all that he is hiding.
After a series of execution-style murders of suspected child killers points to a vigilante operating in New York City, Catherine is dragged into the case and must seek a greater understanding of the man behind these killings. The Black Mask Killer, meanwhile, is taking an interest in her…and their meeting will involve an erotic encounter that rocks Catherine’s world. Suddenly, she finds herself torn between two enigmatic and complicated men…or is she?

But are Thomas Ambrose and the Black Mask Killer really two different men? And if they are not, can she cope with the repercussions of giving her heart to a man who kills for justice?
