A one-man crime wave is shaking the peaceful city of Santa Maria, California, and no place is safe. Kenny Trask, an unpredictable, high-strung, shockingly violent convict, has just escaped from prison and is intent on putting together enough cash to bankroll a new life for himself, his ex-cellmate, and the female defense attorney he believes they must “rescue.”
Only one man is willing to stand in the way: Robby Medavoy, a cop who’s been called a hero, whose unorthodox style has fueled the resentment of rival officers and the suspicions of his superiors. With a contract on his life from his department’s SWAT team, Medavoy must put everything on the line to pull Trask in—his reputation, his survival, and, unexpectedly, the woman he comes to love.

“Not a Cadillac,” Lisio said disgustingly. “We don’t need a car that big. What’s he thinking of?”
Carol, though, knew immediately. Its artlessness broke through even her tension. “He wants to do the last bank in style,” she said.
