Chapter 1

Tyler Atwood stepped from the cold Philadelphia winter into the biggest wreck he'd ever seen.

The guts from a ten-thousand-dollar leather sofa were strewn over the floor of his living room. In the entryway, his great-grandmother's antique Shaker chair was upended--one leg splintered. Yanked from his bedroom like errant soldiers, every pair of shoes he owned was scattered over the floor--every single one damaged. A Picasso, one of the few family heirlooms to survive his father's bankruptcy, was in shreds.

Worse, from an emergency perspective, the liquor cabinet lay shattered on the floor, broken glass shards glistening like diamonds while a dozen flavors of alcohol soaked into a Persian rug that would never again command the forty thousand dollars he'd paid for it only a month earlier. Not a single bottle of the expensive booze looked intact.
