Money can buy many things…
But can it purchase a permanent solution to divorce?
Martin Cantrell would like to know the answer to that question. He has money, respect, and power, but he also has a monthly alimony payment that’s making him miserable. When a friend offers to deal with the “ex” problem for a fee, he can hardly say no. Time is of the essence. The life insurance policy on his ex-wife expires in less than two months.
Unaware of the plans set in motion, Special Agent Megan Luchek goes about her business as usual, only now, she finally has an excuse to dress up on the job. She’s been asked to go undercover to check out some banks. One of the branches just happens to be managed by Martin Cantrell’s ex-wife.
What’s an agent to do when a perfectly peaceful morning turns into a hostage-taking standoff?
This is the first book in the Shadow Council series. There are very few US codes left. You should start here before jumping into Revenge Makes it Sweeter, Christmas Makes it Chaos, and Treachery Makes it Tense.
