Liza is a woman who has it all: a successful law practice, a stunning beach house, and a new Lexus in the garage, but none of it can erase the fact that her once-in-a-lifetime love is dead and she's facing the brutal consequences. Just how did this all go down? Was it greed, ambition, horrible timing, or all of the above?
Set against the glittering backdrop of Newport Beach, California, nationally recognized attorney Liza Rawlings climbs the legal ladder, only to find herself facing a murder one charge that threatens everything she's earned.
The murky world of international money laundering has its talons deeply embedded into Liza's life and now threatens to infect her soul. She finds herself at the mercy of a world-class money kingpin. Attorney J. Gregory Gold wages an uphill battle to learn the truth behind what appears to be yet another of America's fascinations with Ponzi-like schemes, and Liza possesses a list of solid gold investors who stand to lose millions.
Where did the money go? How did the funds transfer across international borders so effortlessly and so completely undetected? More importantly, who's holding the purse strings? Because Liza figured out the answers, she and her lover were put in mortal jeopardy. Furious and helpless over the ugly turn of events, Liza realizes the only person she can truly trust is herself.
