Publisher's Summary

The Palm Beach elite go to great lengths to protect their own - and their own no longer includes Elena Estes. Once upon a time a child of wealth and privilege, Elena turned her back on that life and chose the life of an undercover cop, with the hunt for justice her personal passion. Then a tragic, haunting mistake ended her career. Now Elena exists on the fringes of her old life. But a shocking event is about to draw her back into the painful vortex she's fought so hard to leave behind.

First she finds a body - not just a victim, but a friend. As Elena delves into her dead friend's secret life, she discovers ties to a group of powerful and wealthy Palm Beach bad boys...a group that includes Elena's former fiancé.

Finding her friend's killer will put Elena at odds with her old life, with her new lover, and with herself. But she is determined to reveal the truth - a truth that will shock Palm Beach society to its core, and could very well get her killed.

    "Ruined by Narrator"

    I've listened to other books (Prior Bad Acts and Kill the Messenger) by this author and loved them! I was so excited when I saw another book by Tami Hoag. I've tried to listen to this book quite a few times, but I just can't finish it. The narrator, Beth McDonald, annoys me so much! I find her Russian accents quite ridiculous. Her attempts at changing her voice to match the different characters disrupts the flow of the story. I'll probably pick up a copy of this book at the bookstore, but I simply can't listen to it.

    "Hoag Needed a Different Narrator"

    As much as I enjoy Hoags novels this one fell flat because of the narration. The narrators attempt at the "Russian" accents was nothing short of horrible and ruined the listening experience. I even gave some thought to quiting the book but hung in there for the duration. The narration makes all the difference in the world.......you might consider buying the book instead of downloading it. As for the novel itself it would have scored much higher with a different narrator.

    "Not worth it"

    This was a disappointing read. The narrator used very fake accents. It was predictable and just not an enjoyable book to listen to.

    "Wonderful"

    Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Characters, story "curiosity" and intrigue; that's all I can say. It kept me coming back to complete the end~

    "The Alibi Man"

    If you liked Dark Horse then you will like this one too. All the main characters from Dark Horse are back plus a few new ones. Once again Beth McDonald does an impeccable job of bringing each character to life. A good "who-done-it" read. I've gotten several of Ms. Hoags books and have never been disappointed.

    "Annoying"

    I got so annoyed at the narrator that I only got halfway through the book and decided I couldn't listen anymore. This narrator comes off as a grouchy, disgusted woman who never once had a positive expeience in her life. Her lovelife is in the toilet and I can see why. I think this story could have been great with another narrator. I'll never know.
