He awoke hours later from a blackout, in a motel room with the girl's murdered body on the floor. He ducked out and headed back to St. Paul, thinking he'd got away - until he started getting texts with photos of the body and blackmail demands he couldn't pay. McKenzie soon learns that Truhler was set up to be blackmailed. But Truhler's version of events wasn't exactly the truth either. And McKenzie now finds himself trapped in the middle of a very dangerous game, with some of the most powerful men in the state on one side and some of the deadliest on the other.

There's been a ransom demand. The only condition is that Mac has to be the go-between. He agrees to help, but what started out as a simple ransom becomes complicated when other parties - including the State Department and a mysterious woman calling herself Heavenly - ask Mac to turn the gem over to them. When the murdered body of one of the thieves turns up in a snow drift, it looks like the curse has claimed its latest victim. And there may be more to follow . . .

Then a second attempt is made on Clarisse's life. And a third.
