Nine years ago, Claymore Beller tried to do the right thing. It was the last thing he did. In retaliation for his efforts, his mafia bosses laid waste to his family. Only the youngest – Cynthia – came up fighting.
Three years ago, Lee Maxwell made the same error. His wife and daughter paid for his mistake. In a haze of booze and regret, Lee disappeared.
Now, Owen Dunham is following the trail of the ‘Grudge Ninja’ – only all the evidence is false and the profilers can’t get their heads around anything except the obvious fact that the Ninja is extracting a deadly revenge for an old wrong.
As the Ninja gets bolder and far more dangerous, Owen is forced to recognize that he hasn’t always made the best decisions – he’s spent far too much time trying to be right. Even as he questions whether bringing in the ninja is the right thing to do, the voice in the back of his head is telling him it will make his career . . .

The past is not what interests Doctor Lennan Vincent. His concern has always lied in the present future and the life that would inhabit it. Trying to save every beating heart, and mankind from its own destruction, Doctor Vincent wages war against death in the hospital and outside of it. Dedicated only to his moral code, he never expects to fall in love with a woman whose life was hanging over a bridge.
Only the most tragic events invade the life of Cora Vancova, a simple yet astonishingly beautiful woman, and thrusts her already severed heart into the arms of a man who would fall to his death to save her.
Lennan’s noble life cause is suddenly in question upon saving the life of Cora, causing him to reflect on his dangerous course. Containing powerful secrets only he created, Lennan must decide to continue on his current path or leave it behind him to ensure the safety of Cora. Lying in the shadows of the past, however, exists a secret not even a brilliant mind like Lennan could have foreseen.
Set in the urban chaos of Manhattan, two people fall fiercely in love and try to escape what destiny has in store for them. Lennan, however, understands better than anyone that destiny is a lie.
Fate is the falsest of hopes.
He is beyond any prophecy.
