Overview

In exclusive Star Island, Miami, blood isn't always thicker than water . . . The second book in a thrilling time traveling mystery series featuring a former Miami PD who solves murders before they happen--by going back in time.

The night of his fiftieth birthday, software billionaire Jack Warren went missing hundreds of miles out to sea, his blood spattered aboard his yacht, his body gone. His mistress, Ava Day, was charged with his murder--but she had already vanished without a trace.

Now, ten years later, detective Lila Day still refuses to believe that her sister is a cold-blooded killer. To clear Ava's name and solve this long-cold case, Lila asks her friend Teddy Hawkins to do what he has done before--send her back to time, to solve the crime before it takes place.

And so she goes back to 2008, with only a month to prove her sister's innocence and bring Warren's real killer to justice. But as she dives ever deeper into the world of high-speed yachting and corporate intrigue, and the night of Warren's birthday draws ever closer, the truth becomes murkier than ever. And then Lila discovers information that shocks her deeply--a terrible truth that changes everything she thought she knew about her sister, and herself.

When wealthy software magnate Jack Warren is murdered aboard his luxury yacht, The Rising Tide, on the night of his 50th birthday in 2008, authorities believe the killer to be his artist mistress, Ava Day, sister to time-traveling former Miami homicide detective Lila Day, the star of Spector’s solid sequel to 2013’s The Rich and the Dead. Lila has always believed in her sister’s innocence and the guilt of Jack’s wife, Elise Warren, whose latest husband has died from a reported self-inflicted gunshot in the present-day of 2019. Lila persuades her friend Teddy Hawkins, who controls her time travel, to let her go back to a month before the murder, promising she won’t interfere with the past. Working undercover as a stewardess aboard The Rising Tide, Lila spots a number of possible killers, from the deckhands to Jack’s daughter. As Lila frantically seeks proof for her theory, Spector provides readers with an entertaining range of overindulgence and corruption. (Dec.)
