Secret Service Agent Elizabeth Caine was standing next to President Joseph Sullivan when an assassin opened fire. In the aftermath, Elizabeth was left in a coma, and the President and his wife were both dead. When Elizabeth wakes ten months later, she resigns her position and withdraws to a rustic cabin in the woods. It's there that her mentor Theodore Hudson finds her a year later with a proposition. He's started a private security firm and an old friend asked him for the best bodyguard he could think of. Only one name came to mind, and Theo asks her to at least hear them out.
Elizabeth travels to Squire's Isle to meet with the clients, Everett and Michelle Drake. Mr. Drake is the current CEO of a lumber company, and he's concerned for his daughter Kelly. There have been a handful of kidnapping attempts, and he wants them stopped. Elizabeth listens, as she agreed, but a plea from the girl's mother convinces Elizabeth to take the job.
Elizabeth enlists some old friends to protect Kelly: Zoe Forrest, a former cop turned private eye, and Wade Ottis, a weapons supplier and conspiracy theorist.
During the course of her assignment, Elizabeth digs deeper into the official story of the President's assassination and uncovers evidence that all might not be as it seems, and the shooting isn't quite as cut and dried as it first appeared. She decides to join Theo's company on a case-by-case basis so she can continue to dig into the conspiracy, quickly discovering that she may not be able to trust even her closest friends.

About the Author
Geonn Cannon was born in a barn and raised to know better than that. He was born and raised in Oklahoma where he’s been enslaved by a series of cats, dogs, two birds and one unexpected turtle. He’s spent his entire life creating stories but only became serious about it when he realized it was a talent that could impress girls. Learning to write well was easier than learning to juggle, so a career was underway. His high school years were spent writing stories among a small group of friends and reading whatever books he could get his hands on. Geonn was inspired to create the fictional Squire’s Isle after a 2004 trip to San Juan Island in Washington State. His first novel set on the island, On the Air, was written almost as a side project to another story he wanted to tell. Reception to the story was so strong that the original story was put on the back burner to deal with the world created in On the Air. His second novel set in the same universe, Gemini, was also very well received and went on to win the Golden Crown Literary Society Award for Best Novel, Dramatic/General Fiction. Geonn was the first male author to receive the honor. While some of his novels haven’t focused as heavily on Squire’s Isle, the vast majority of Geonn’s works take place in the same universe and have connections back to the island and its cast of characters (the exception being the Riley Parra series). In addition to writing more novels based on the inhabitants of Squire’s Isle, Geonn hopes to one day move to the real-life equivalent to inspire further stories. Geonn is currently working on a tie-in novel to the television series Stargate SG-1, and a script for a webseries version of Riley Parra.
