In this captivating Depression-era set novel by New York Times bestselling author Mary Monroe, two
couples find their grudges endangering more than their Alabama small town’s deceptive peace …
When good-time couple Milton and Yvonne Hamilton moved one house over from the respectable-but-restless
Odell and Joyce Watson, it was a fast friendship of shared secrets—and secret jealousies and betrayals. Their alliance
was bound to crash and burn, but the Hamiltons won’t quite let the flame die out, even after scandalous accusations
get them arrested …
Odell would do anything to be free of his bootlegging, blackmailing, money extorting neighbors and recover the
peaceful—and financially prosperous—life he and Joyce once had. But Milton and Yvonne seem to always bounce
back from bad luck, and this time they’ve returned angrier, and greedier, than ever. Determined to get what Odell
“owes” them, the Hamiltons have a big surprise for Joyce too, one that shows how far they will go to get revenge …
Now pushed past his breaking point, Odell is sure he’s got a foolproof plan to end the scheming once and for all.
But it soon spirals into lies, shattering violence, and permanent damage that will roil their tranquil community, and
alter his and Joyce’s world forever …
