Her debts are called in—by a killer
Everyone says the Elders family are cheats, thieves, and convicts—an image 19-year-old Jamie Elders is trying desperately to escape. But the poker savant’s dreams of going pro and getting out of Blind River, NY, are going nowhere fast after she lands in a huge pile of debt to her uncle Loyal.
Jamie can’t walk away—not with her younger brother Toby at Loyal’s mercy. So when Loyal demands Jamie’s help cleaning up a mess one night, she has to agree. But disposing of a dead athlete and covering up his connection to the town’s most powerful judge goes beyond family duty. When Loyal pins the murder on Toby, only Jamie can save him. But with a dogged detective on her trail, she’ll have to embrace her inner criminal, or face the consequences.
