Jonetta (ejaygirl) | 13759 comments Mod
Homicide cop Eve Dallas and her billionaire husband, Roarke, are building a brand-new school and youth shelter. They know that the hard life can lead kids toward dangerous crossroads—and with this new project, they hope to nudge a few more of them onto the right path. For expert help, they hire child psychologist Dr. Rochelle Pickering—whose own brother pulled himself out of a spiral of addiction and crime with Rochelle’s support.

Lyle is living with Rochelle while he gets his life together, and he’s thrilled to hear about his sister’s new job offer. But within hours, triumph is followed by tragedy. Returning from a celebratory dinner with her boyfriend, she finds Lyle dead with a syringe in his lap, and Eve’s investigation confirms that this wasn’t just another OD. After all his work to get clean, Lyle’s been pumped full of poison—and a neighbor with a peephole reports seeing a scruffy, pink-haired girl fleeing the scene.

Now Eve and Roarke must venture into the gang territory where Lyle used to run, and the ugly underground world of tattoo parlors and strip joints where everyone has taken a wrong turn somewhere. They both believe in giving people a second chance. Maybe even a third or fourth. But as far as they’re concerned, whoever gave the order on Lyle Pickering’s murder has run out of chances…

Paula Adams (goodreadscompadams57) | 838 comments As soon as I finish one, I'm looking forward to the next. September will be here before we know it. Leverage In Death.


Sharon Kallenberger Marzola | 2559 comments This sounds exciting with the potential of revealing more of Roarke & Eve's struggle with their past. Sounds like Eve is becoming more involved in Roarke's philanthropic ventures.

Does anyone think that it might be Quilla wearing the pink hair? I don't think it is her, but it's a theory.

Dawn | 3245 comments Anyone listening to the audio? Are you figuring out the clues? I thought I had them down until chapter 11


Barbara "Cookie" Serfaty Williams (goodreadscomcookiew1801) | 1386 comments Just finished. Did not like the audio book, so I give the book 4 stars. Cannot wait for open discussion.

How can you NOT like Susan Ericksen's excellent performance? I look forward to the audiobook nearly as much as I look forward to the actual book!!

Sharon Kallenberger Marzola | 2559 comments I like it all. I didn't figure out the clues for the contest either. I will listen again this weekend.
