Having lived as both a man and a woman has both gifted and cursed him with perspective—a shifting dynamic that results in palpable emotional anguish, shocking twists, and scorching love scenes. A fast-paced, mind-bending romantic thriller from an author with humor, heart, and big writing muscles.
-Kirkus

Synopsis

The most provocative and groundbreaking novel yet from an author praised for his “dizzyingly intense” writing and “beautifully broken characters” (Publishers Weekly, starred review).

Very few mainstream authors have garnered the devoted following that USA TODAY bestselling author Elliot Wake has earned by pushing the boundaries of romantic suspense. His carefully rendered “anti-heroines” buck norms, immersing you in a gritty world of sexual fluidity, drugs, and revenge, told with exquisite language and candor that turns the romance genre on its head and leaves readers begging for more.

His latest novel is a tightly plotted adventure that follows closely on the heels of his acclaimed novels Unteachable—“lush, haunting prose, deft storytelling, and scorching sensuality” (M. Pierce)—the “intense and visceral” (Lauren Blakely) Black Iris, and the “rich and unflinching narrative” (Emory Lord) of Cam Girl, and is sure to keep you reading late into the night.
