Summary
"Billy Blessing wasn't always a celebrity chef. He wasn't always a TV host. He wasn't always such a nice guy. He wasn't even always Billy Blessing. He's reminded of this when an ex-cop named Pine shows up at his hotel and reminds him of Billy Blanchard, a small-time con who nearly swindled Motown from Berry Gordy before doing a year in prison. His associates, though, did a lot more time, and a few of them have ended up murdered. Pine will keep this quiet...for a fee... Billy's in a tight spot that gets even tighter when Pine turns up dead. The cops don't suspect Billy, but that doesn't mean his past can't still come back to haunt him--or even get him killed as well. With blackmail abound, bodies adding up, a budding romance, and a television audience of millions, Billy is definitely in the glare of the brightest spotlight. Keeping his name clear is one challenge, keeping his head attached to his body is another, and Billy will have to rely on the very past he's trying to put behind him if he's going to survive, and move forward one and for all"--
