Taking the suspect into custody turns into a life and death struggle for Darby, and for the dead woman who returns to life with no apparent explanation besides Darby's touch. Sequestered in a hospital room, Darby learns several government agencies are vying to take her into custody.
Can Darby fight the law she's devoted her life to when it's her freedom on the line? But the bigger question hanging over her head: Can she resurrect the dead again?
RETALIATION: A year after Detective Darby Shaw finds out she is a superhuman who can revive the murdered, she has uneasily accepted the expectations on her and settled into the new direction of her life.
Darby's relative peace is shattered when, a year to the day after her first resuscitation, the 37-year-old killer turns up dead in his jail cell-his body withered to that of an aged man. Speculation mounts that Darby and her powers are directly responsible for the death of the killer.
The Department of SuperHuman Affairs attempts to revoke her status as a super so they can whisk her off for testing. But when a motion for just that is denied by the court, even Darby will be surprised at just how far they will go to get their hands on her...
CAPITULATION: Surviving a kidnapping is not for the faint of heart, as Darby Shaw knows all too well. Two months after being rescued, she's starting to get things back to a new normal. She's making changes, subtle though they may be, doing what she can to move on.
Her latest case is just the thing Darby needs to keep her mind off the recent past: Justin Kendrick, paraplegic, is dead. Being poisoned, strangled, and stabbed through the heart seems like overkill. Together with her partner, Detective Mark Herman, and colleague, Sergeant Trent Oliver, Darby must track down Justin's killer.
After the resuscitation, all hell breaks loose, and Darby is unprepared for the consequences of her powers...Or how they will affect her...
