The job seems simple enough: retrieve the valuable painting - "The Double" - Grace Kinkaid's ex-boyfriend stole from her. It's the sort of thing Spero Lucas specializes in: finding what's missing, and doing it quietly. But Grace wants more. She wants Lucas to find the man who humiliated her - a violent career criminal with a small gang of brutal thugs at his beck and call.
Lucas is a man who knows how to get what he wants, whether it's a thief on the run - or a married woman. Now he's in the midst of a steamy, passionate love affair that he knows can't last, in pursuit of a dangerous man who's got nothing to lose. Every man has his dark side - but confronting his own may be Spero Lucas's undoing.
