WHAT ELSE CAN GO WRONG? When the phone rings at dark-thirty with more bad news, all four of your tires are as flat as your love life, and your hair explodes when you step outside, do not ask that “What else?” question. I, Tessa Dupuis, did. Next thing I knew, I boarded a plane in southern Louisiana that landed in New York City, and me in way more trouble than I’d bargained for. I’m under the skin of Detective Max Walker, and up to my ears in bank robberies, suspicious incidents too frequent to be coincidences, and men eager to end my two-year man-drought. Life even sent me my own personal boogeyman who has his eye on me and plans to fulfill my every nightmare.
