“He’s a cop, and cops tend to dig up shit that should stay buried. My fear is I’ll let him get too close and he’ll see who I really am.”
“And, who are you?”
MonaLisa spun around and grinned. “Your greatest fantasy or your worst nightmare.” She erupted in raspy laughter, baring her pearly teeth. “Sometimes I’m both at the same time, which is cool and all, but being a nightmare…” Suddenly, her smile dwindled. “A girl gotta let her demon out to play sometimes.”
Toshiro Matsuda, a tenacious Japanese inspector, is on the hunt for a serial killer who has left a trail of bodies across the globe. The latest victim was slashed backstage during a Scorpion Tail concert in a small town in Georgia.
The indie band’s wild, rebellious sound and dark lyrics catches Toshiro’s attention. He delves into the band members’ sordid pasts, and discovers that they are linked to the most recent victim.
MonaLisa–aka Queen Sting–the lead singer, hatches a plan to distract the inspector in order to protect her band brothers. In a turn of events, she becomes attracted to him. She wants to give in, but if she acts on her desire, Toshiro may uncover the secrets she keeps, and that will put her band at risk.
Toshiro was never one to fall for seduction, but there is something about the sassy rock star that intrigues him. However, he is not the only one who is fixated on her.
Will Toshiro be able to catch the killer, before MonaLisa is added to the kill list?
“One day, I’ll soar to the heavens and touch the sky. But today, I’d rather play in the flames.” ~ MonaLisa
