Exclusive Sneak Peek: Law and Disorder by Heather Graham + Giveaway! (US/Can only)

Law and Disorder (The Finnegan Connection #1)
Heather Graham

Trust the enemy?

Desperate to escape her kidnappers, Kody Cameron can turn to only one man… and he’s holding a gun. Outnumbered and trapped in the deadly Everglades, she has little recourse, but something in this captor’s eyes makes her believe she can trust him. Does she dare to take the risk?

Undercover agent Nick Connolly has met Kody before and knows she might very well blow his cover. Though determined to maintain his facade, he can’t let Kody die. He won’t. And his decision to change his own rules of law and order are about to make all hell break loose.


“So, this is Miss Cameron?” the masked man in the house asked.

“Yes, Dillinger. This is Miss Cameron,” Barrow said.

Dillinger. She was right—this guy’s mask was that of the long-ago killer John Dillinger.

“Well, well, well. I can’t tell you, Miss Cameron, what a delight it is to meet you!” the man said. “Imag­ine! When I heard that you were here—cuddle time with the family before the final big move to the Big Apple—I knew it was time we had to step in.”

The man seemed to know about her—and her fam­ily.

“If you think I’m worth some kind of ransom,” she said, truly puzzled—and hoping she wasn’t sealing her own doom, “I’m not. We may own this estate, but it’s in some kind of agreement and trust with the state of Florida. It survives off of grants and tourist dollars.” She hesitated. “My family isn’t rich. They just love this old place.”

“Yeah, yeah, yeah, Daddy is an archeologist and Mom travels with him. Right now they’re on their way back from South America so they can head up north with their baby girl to get her all settled into New York City. Yes! I have the prize right here, don’t I?”

“I have no idea what you’re talking about,” Kody told him. “I wish I could say that someone would give you trillions of dollars for me, but I’m not anyone’s prize. I’m a bartender-waitress at an Irish pub who’s struggling to make ends meet as an actress.”

“Oh, honey,” Dillinger said, “I don’t give a damn if you’re a bad actress.”

“Hey! I never said I was a bad actress!” she pro­tested. And then, of course, she thought that he was making her crazy—heck, the whole situation was mak­ing her crazy—because who the hell cared if she was a bad actress or a good actress if she wasn’t even alive?

Dillinger waved a hand in the air. “That’s neither here nor there. You’re going to lead us to the Anthony Green stash.”

Startled, Kody went silent.

Everyone, of course, had heard about the Anthony Green stash.

Green was known to have knocked over the long-defunct Miami Bank of the Pioneers, making off with the bank’s safe-deposit boxes that had supposedly con­tained millions in diamonds, jewels, gold and more. It was worth millions. But Anthony Green had died in a hail of bullets—with his mouth shut. The stash was never found. It had always been suspected that Anthony Green—before his demise—had seen to it that the haul had been hidden somewhere in one of his shacks deep in the Everglades, miles from his Biscayne Bay home.
