Their leader, Fox Evil, is a man of contradictions charismatic, unpredictable until he demonstrates that acquiring a stake in Shenstead is the least of his intentions ...In this her ninth superb thriller, Walters tells a riveting story of unlikely alliances between strangers, whose clearer eyes and compassionate natures reveal evil for what it really is.
