*FIFTH BOOK IN THE SERIES*
Trouble finds its way to Vinn and Malcolm’s front door, even when they’ve sworn it off for good. The two academics teaching at the University of Illinois at Chicago have become an unlikely crime-fighting duo, taking on gruesome murder cases, doing covert work for government agencies and getting tangled up in one too many violent altercations.
And they’ve finally had enough. Vinn and Mal have now sworn off their dangerous extracurricular work and decided to put their energy back into their “legitimate jobs” at the University. But when Vinn is approached by her powerful department head and implored to look into the murder of his brother-in-law, the two are reluctantly drawn back into their shadowy side hustle.
