Katarina Shelton is finally ready to leave her abusive husband. Too bad Rutherford is powerful, ruthless, and not prone to giving up his possessions. Katarina needs the aid of someone who doesn't play by the rules. Someone charming and manipulative, who enjoys relieving rich men of their toys. She needs Jules Brand. And Brand is always willing to help a damsel in distress, if the price is right. He's not a hitman; what he does is far more profitable, and far less bloody, an important factor to a man who only wears silk shirts and Italian hand-stitched loafers.
