When an old friend is found murdered, and the local police connect her to a number of jewelry heists, San Francisco Homicide Inspector Rebecca Mayfield knows something is wrong. She soon finds herself out of her jurisdiction and out of her depth when her inquiries into the murder attract the attention of a gang of Russian mobsters. Richie Amalfi, who Rebecca sees as a charmer with an indifference to the fine points of the law, seems to know a little too much (or maybe a lot too much) about the people who are not only trying to stop Rebecca's investigation, but to stop her permanently. This only makes her question, even more, exactly who Richie is. But for now, he's the only one helping her in the face of threats to her life. Rebecca's interest in Richie grows as the situation takes a deadly turn. Through him, she looks beyond hard evidence to the secrets at the heart of the case, and in turn, to the secrets of her own heart. But through it all, Rebecca has to wonder if she'll end up as dead as a cold Russian winter.
