Coming 01.30.24

In this new pulse-pounding thriller from the author of The Black Queen, two brothers must come together to solve the murder of the most popular girl in school after one of them is caught fleeing the scene of her death.

Amir Trudeau has his fair share of problems. He hates his new school, and his estranged half-brother Marcel is continuously trying to repair a relationship that Amir wants no part of. Both the sons of local celebrity chef Martin Trudeau, Marcel is part of the 'new' family Amir's dad left him and his mom to start—a betrayal Amir has never forgotten.
    But when Amir wakes up in the middle of the night and finds Chloe Danvers, a pretty and popular white girl who attends the same elite private school as him, stabbed to death, he suddenly finds himself with much bigger things to worry about.
    After cameras catch him fleeing the scene of Chloe's murder, Amir becomes embroiled in an investigation that has all of New Orleans talking. And now, in order to clear his name, he'll have to rely on the one person his trusts least—Marcel, who sees helping Amir crack the case as way to repair their relationship. But as the brothers dig deeper into the mystery of Chloe's death, they'll have to face the twisted secrets festering within the hallowed halls of their own school.
