Commissioned to cut an extraordinarily rare collection of sapphires, a job that will establish her career, promising jewel cutter Kate Chandler hires her half-brother to transport the gems, but when he is murdered and the jewels are stolen, Kate realizes she will become another victim unless she can identify the killer. (Suspense)


New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Lowell brilliantly displays her incomparable talents in a story of treachery, greed, conspiracy, and murder that will hold the reader spellbound until the final word.

It is the opportunity of a lifetime for Kate Chandler, the chance to cut seven rare and priceless sapphires and solidify her reputation as a world-class jewel cutter. But something goes tragically wrong when the sapphires vanish. Missing also is the man Kate trusted to transport the gems: her half brother, Lee, who now, quite possibly, is dead. Suddenly she is on the run, pursued by federal agents who suspect her of being the criminal mastermind of a cunning bait-and-switch scheme.

Only Kate suspects the awful truth: She's unwittingly stumbled into a conspiracy of deceit, betrayal, and cold-blooded murder. Getting FBI special agent Sam Groves to believe her is a step in the right direction -- but it may be one that's too little and too late, because he's not the only one chasing Kate. The order has already been passed down to a ruthless assassin that Kate Chandler must not be allowed to live ...
