    By the time the world's greatest detective figures out whodunnit… his own son could die in the electric chair in this murder and mystery suspense novel. 
    There was only one case out of hundreds of cold cases that Vincent James Gideon never wholly solved, Rosenthall. (Read about it in Book 1 of the Gideon Detective Series.) If that should happen in Volume 2 of the Case of the Ace of Spades, his son could walk down that lonely hallway to the electric chair. 
    Watching her take a sip, it took the assassin every urge not to swat the glass away, but he knew it was the only way to save his life. He stared at the beautiful woman and wondered how long it would take to go into effect. He questioned how much time it would be before she became dizzy and forgot where she was. 
    Everything seemed to switch into slow motion. For a moment, the killer doubted himself and wondered if, in fact, he poisoned the wrong glass? Guilt began to creep into his gut. It took all his strength to withhold the tears that started to glisten in his eyes. Why? 
    She began to cough and cough. The wine glass fell to the side, and her body collapsed to the floor. The assassin wasted no time. With an ivory-handled dagger, he stuck the Ace of Spades across the point of the blade and pierced her in the chest. From the many trunks in the hallway packed for a long journey, he placed her body inside the largest one available. 
    Then, the killer called on an accomplice to carry the trunk to an unknown destination. But, the blundering detectives with the Black Rock Cove Police Department who were assigned to the case got all the facts twisted. The wrong man was accused. He was known as Billy Bob Tanner, Gideon's son. 
    By the time the victim was found, her flesh was as cold as the wintry night. Her ivory skin was splattered with blood.

    I’m SO NOT over her sexy mouth. Too bad she has enough defiance in her to hate my guts. 
    Never, EVER go into business with the woman whose heart you shattered. I’ve lost my ever-loving mind! 
    I fell for Aedon Thatcher years ago, the moment I laid eyes on her. 
    Her beauty, brains, and “I don’t give a damn” attitude were irresistible. 
    I thought I had my future all figured out, down to the names of our children. Then I screwed it all up. My ego, which perched higher than your average Joe, became the monster that ate away at her love for me. 
    I went from her hero to an evil villain that she ran from. I couldn’t blame her…I hated me too. 
    Now our venture together puts us in the same place every day. A sweet second chance. Too bad she still loathes me. At least that’s what her sexy lips say. Her body says something totally different, and I plan on taking advantage of every inch she gives me.
