They say your life flashes before your eyes right before you die. Finnick Hollins might be finding that out the hard way. With a gun pointed at the back of his head, he retraces his life starting as a child running cons with his father and ending in a stranger's house with a dead body at his feet and the chilling feel of cold steel pressed to his skull.
Sir Baron Lacey lives a life of prominence and position, until he's falsely accused of his fiancée's murder. Unable to claim his title and family estate, he follows a killer's trail from one end of England to another. Lady Ella Baxter always does what is expected of her, except where Baron Lacey is concerned. When she finds the man she loves shot and close to death, her loyalties will be challenged more than ever before.
