#1 New York Times bestselling author Sandra Brown’s ""scorching...action-filled"" (Publishers Weekly) tale of corruption and betrayal, revenge and reversal—is now available in a premium paperback edition.
When newswoman Britt Shelley wakes up to find herself in bed with Jay Burgess, a rising star detective in the Charleston police department, she remembers nothing of how she got there...or of how Jay wound up dead.
Handsome and hard-partying, Jay was one of four heroic city officials who risked their lives to lead others to safety during a catastrophic fire five years ago. Firefighter Raley Gannon, Jay’s lifelong friend, was assigned to lead the investigation into the cause of the fire. But it was an investigation he never got to complete because one calamitous night, his career was destroyed by scandal.
Now, the newswoman whose biased reporting helped bring about Raley’s downfall might be his only chance to vindicate himself and get justice for the fire’s victims. But as Raley and Britt discover more about what happened that fateful day, the more perilous their situation becomes, until they’re not only chasing after the truth but running for their lives. A tale about audacious corruption—and those with the courage to expose it—Smoke Screen is Sandra Brown’s most searing and intense novel yet.
