She's in danger from two men.
One wants her dead. The other wants more than she can give.
Talia's desperate search to find her daughter takes her to a small island where danger lurks in every shadow. Her ex-husband, a brutal and unstable foe won't shake her resolve no matter his threats—or worse.
Detective Nick Foster has had a drug dealer in his sight for years. Finally, with a chance to put him away for good, Talia forces her way into the investigation, and things go terribly wrong. Described as cold and clinical, just the way he likes it, somehow, this determined woman gets under his skin.
Now, on the back foot with a deadly suspect, Nick's also out of his depth with the woman he must protect. This puts the entire case at risk and raises the stakes for everyone.
The clock is ticking, and the unlikely pair risk losing everything that matters most.
"A fast-paced story with lots of action and great characters."
