Quick's ambitious novel, set during the golden age of Hollywood, sparkles with wit and clever plotting' Publishers Weekly A psychic desperate to escape her destiny - and a killer - finds her future in the coastal town of Burning Cove. . . Prudence Ryland thought reinventing herself in a new home, far from the dangers of her old life, would be enough to keep her safe: she was wrong. She is kidnapped and drugged - and when she wakes, it's in a honeymoon suite, in a bloodstained wedding dress, with a dead man at her side. With the press outside the hotel and police sirens in the distance, it's obvious she's being framed for the man's murder. Prudence knows who is responsible, but will anyone believe her?Desperate, Prudence accepts the help of rumoured crime boss Luther Pell and his associate, Jack Wingate. Despite how seemingly outrageous her claims of being a target of a ruthless vendetta, Jack seems to believe her. Jack might be a fraudster - or worse - but Prudence has no choice. Of course, his ideas for helping her involve using her as the bait for a killer, but Prudence feels oddly safe with Jack protecting her. But who will protect Prudence from her growing fascination with this enigma of a man?Praise for Amanda Quick:'A master storyteller' The Huffington Post'Sparkles with wit and clever plotting' Publishers Weekly'Sexy . . . clever, fun' Kirkus Reviews
