The enemy of my enemy is my sister Career criminal Vic Doloro isn't the kind of guy you'd send a card to on Father's Day. Layla Shawn never has. She's spent most of her thirty-two years estranged from her father and haunted by the mysterious death of her mother. Then Vic dies, leaving Layla--an unemployed artist--a tempting inheritance of ill-gotten money. Urging her to take the money is Vic's other daughter, Bette, with whom Layla shares a troubled past. On a cross-country road trip, the two women mend fences, but Layla finds herself caught in the middle of an unsettled and lethal score between her father and a man who knows more than he should about her mother's death. As Layla zeroes in on the truth and wrestles with her own demons, she finds herself face to face with a killer.
