Summary

Chief Petty Officer John Riker has a problem—a dead body and no one for NCIS to blame but him. With blood covering his hands and uniform, he looks as guilty as he feels for being late and being unable to save his friend. And, if things aren’t bad enough, the NCIS in charge is his ex-fiance. While he hadn’t left her standing at the altar, he had broken it off hoping to save her the heartache of living alone while he served.
NCIS Special Agent Edith Jane Lancaster hates that Riker ends up being top suspect in a murder crime. Although, it does give her an advantage as she already knows his tells and his lies. Leaving her at the altar had been something he claimed to do for her so she wouldn’t be lonely, but that was all she’d been since he left—alone. Would her opinion cloud the subject? After five years, she figures she can be impartial.
Together, they have to find out who wanted to kill John’s friend in an elite Military move. Can Edith save John from the killer and himself? Can John ever forgive himself for leaving her? Will she? Or will they both die alone, with a killer running loose on the naval base?
