Leigh Barnes wants only to pursue a career in journalism, but instead finds herself being pursued by the critically acclaimed columnist she exposed as a cold-blooded murderer. The life sentence of Jude Orcus abruptly ends after only two years, when he escapes and appears at her door. Kidnaped, tortured, shot, and left for dead, Leigh should not survive, yet she does. Instead of being grateful to be alive, she rails against God, who allowed her brutal abduction and the deaths of her fiancA(c) and her beloved parents. She can no longer trust God-or anyone. Not even her mentor, employer and friend, Sebastian Vanderhyde, whom she begins to suspect is a duplicitous hypocrite with a hidden agenda. Or Thrasher Cole, a heroic firefighter, a respected lawyer, and a man she could love...until she learns he may have caused the deaths of his wife and child. Although an adversary, Leif Hardaway is a powerful technology genius and the father of her good friend, Cynthia. And also a traitor to his country and to his family. All those she had once thought were friends are now strangers keeping deadly secrets. Only when there is nowhere to turn and no one to turn to does she learn that she is the key to all the secrets they have been keeping.
