Note from Latrivia S. Nelson:
I truly hope that you enjoy my latest addition to The Medlov Crime Family Series. This book is different, because it’s a stand-alone. If you have never read the series, you still will be able to follow the characters and the plot of this book without having read Dmitry’s Closet or Dmitry’s Royal Flush: Rise of the Queen. So don’t worry.
For those with sensitive reading eyes, there is no rape scene. However, for those hopeless romantics, there is plenty of love You’ll see the complex relationships between father and son, husband and wife, mother and daughter, best friends, etc.
Also, at the end of the book, you will have a few questions. They all will be answered in the last book of the series due out December 2011.
This book was written with the suggestions that have been given over the last year in mind. Each and every review has been taken into consideration, and I’d like to thank all of you for your continued support of my work.
It is my most sincere desire to get better and better at writing stories that take you from your everyday life. We have enough on our plates to keep us anchored to reality.
