In this prelude to Cold Blooded, Mike Black and his wife, Shy, are trying again to put that life behind them, raise their children,  and spend the rest of their lives loving one another in peace. That peace is shattered when Elias Colton, a prominent member of  the Black Business Association and close associate of New York City gangster Mike Black, is murdered.

            The detectives assigned to the case believe that they have a suspect, and the motive is sex, money, or both. However, when Black and Shy are spotted at the funeral, the detectives know that it’s necessary to eliminate Black and The Family, the criminal organization that he controls, as prime suspects. They soon discover that the murder has international implications.

With the war behind them, everybody in The Family has gone back to making money. However, Underboss Rain Robinson is preoccupied with her situation with Carter Garrison, and she needs some space to figure out what to do. So when her cousin, Sapphire Langston, goes missing, Rain uses the disappearance as an excuse to distance herself from Carter.

At Sapphire’s apartment, someone has ransacked the place and is still there waiting when Rain arrives. Rain fights off her ambusher after a wild shootout, but now, as the search for Sapphire and the investigation of Elias Colton’s murder continues, it becomes evident that the two are connected.
