From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Heartbreaker comes a thrilling novel of passion and obsession featuring attorney Theo Buchanan.

Like his FBI agent brother Nick, Theo Buchanan is devoted to his crime-fighting career. Unlike his brother, he works the other side of the desk as an esteemed Justice Department attorney and rarely sees on-the-field action--until he comes to the aid of Dr. Michelle Renard, a beautiful and brilliant surgeon in Bowen, Louisiana, who recently saved his own life. Michelle's medical clinic has been vandalized, and the investigation uncovers a deadly ring of criminals bent on preserving their secrecy at any cost.

They call themselves the Sowing Club: four white-collar professionals whose sophisticated crimes have amassed millions of dollars in a Cayman Islands bank account. The group is bound by a pact to leave the cash untouched until they accumulate a certain amount, but their leader, John, is distracted by and nearly bankrupt from his wife's grave illness. Knowing what must be done, John turns to his three friends to mercy-kill his wife, but the line between mercy and murder quickly vanishes....

As the relentless and cold-blooded Sowing Club sets out to silence Michelle, the one person who has information that could destroy them, Theo confronts the lies, greed, and evil that bind the lethal foursome--and risks more than he ever has before. Michelle saved his life...now can he save hers?

This book is really boring. Most of the book is about the Rowing Club. The main characters, Michelle and Theo, are barely in the first third of the book. The story is so convoluted the reader just wants it to end. I kept reading the book because Nick and Laurant are in other books in this series. Should have skipped this one.

LOVED this book! I thought it was boring in the beginning so started another book. It was worse, so went back to Mercy. So glad I gave it a chance. It was funny, romantic and full of mystery. One of her best. Easily 5 stars!!!
