“A thought-provoking, topical crime tale rich in memorable choices and consequences.” —Booklist on Dead on Arrival

Kiki Swinson’s bestselling novels burn with extraordinary characters, triple-down twists—and a raw portrait of Southern life only she can deliver. Now she turns up the heat as a young woman cashes in on a sure thing—only to find some addictions are always killer. . .

Break the rules

At first, Misty Heiress just wants to help. With her cousin Jillian in constant pain, and the doctor refusing to prescribe, Misty steals opioids from the Virginia Beach pharmacy where she works. But when Jillian starts reselling them to local dealers and gets big money, Misty grabs an unbelievable opportunity to get out of debt—and fulfill all of her and Jillian's dreams. . .

Live the dream

Misty soon realizes that her boss, Sanjay, has the same idea, ordering more drugs than patients need and always being out of stock. And when the new pharmacy owner takes an interest in Misty, she knows that time is running out for her and Jillian to make their plans work. . .

Pay the price

But then the Feds come calling . . . and Sanjay’s mafia partners want to increase orders . . . and Jillian’s bringing in partners to rob the pharmacy. It’s all too much for Misty. It’s only a matter of time before everyone’s plans to make money will have them all paying the ultimate price. . .
