287 pages. From rear cover: "An alluring child-woman. To some, she was too dangerously desirable to live. To one cop, she was too beautiful to die. He's Frank Clemons. The Atlanta cop with nothing left except the city and its unending streets. She's Angelica Devereaux. The very rich, far too young girl who had wanted a thing not quite definable, yet a thing that had a fever to it. Both had shared the sort of loneliness that easily turns to rage. Even though they'd never met. Now Angelica's still lovely body lies in a shallow grave. And Frank isn't just out to find the killer. He's out for blood. Because Angelica's irresistible allure, even in death, has become Frank's consuming obsession."
