After a painful divorce two years ago, her ex refuses to believe they’re done and fights for a reconciliation he’s convinced she wants no matter what she says.

Imani’s name comes up during the investigation and he chooses to meet the beautiful woman personally to ask questions.

When another person ends up dead, the pair learns quickly, knowledge without wisdom is deadly, and there are nuances and degrees to the truth. Theo thinks he’s got things under control but has no idea how out of his control everything really is. There are those who would stop at nothing to Protect the Seed.
