Publishers Description: Evan Delaney, novelist and legal go-fer, is dressed as Diana Ross in order to crash a fancy-dress party and serve a summons, when she hears that Franklin Brand is back in town. Brand is the hit-and-run driver who sentenced Evan's lover Jesse to life in a wheelchair, and killed his best friend.Since the accident, Brand has been avoiding justice overseas; but if he's back Evan and Jesse are determined to get him, helped by the dead boy's brother, Adam. Brand has been a high-flyer in Mako Technologies, a cyber-security firm, and this is where Evan starts looking.She quickly uncovers evidence that Brand was embezzling funds, and that Adam's brother knew all about it. So maybe the hit-and-run wasn't an accident at all? The policeman investigating is killed, and Adam and Jesse both come under suspicion.Matters are further complicated by the confused emotions of Jesse who feels a survivor's guilt, and Adam who resents the fact that Jesse is alive while his brother died.But there are more corpses to come - including a near miss for Evan herself - before the bad guys are finally brought to book.
