Against all the odds, Dolly Rawlins and her gangland widows managed the impossible: a heist their husbands had failed to pull off – at the cost of their lives. But though they may be in the money, they are far from easy street. Shocked by her husband’s betrayal, Dolly discovers Harry Rawlins isn’t dead. He knows where the four women are and he wants them to pay. And he does not just mean getting his hands on the money. The women can not keep running. They have to get Harry out of their lives for good. But can they outwit a criminal mastermind who will not hesitate to kill? Especially when one of them has a plan of her own … to kill or be killed.
