About the book

RACE, SEX AND SECRETS SPARK DEADLY DRAMA. Two beautiful sisters spark a scandal of race, sex, politics and money — that could kill them both. Camille is living the glamorous life in New York by “passing for white.” Meanwhile, Karen is proudly serving their interracial family and Detroit community. But their black mother is dying. Camille can save her. However, that would expose Camille’s Dark Secret to the rich, racist dynasty that she’s worked so hard to join through marriage. Will Camille let her mother die? Or will Karen force her sister to save their mother’s life? From New York to Capitol Hill, from a Virginia plantation to the ghetto and glamour of Detroit, Karen and Camille battle for what they believe in. Their clash over black and white, love and money, seduction and deception, explodes into a national scandal. Can the two sisters escape alive?
