When her four year old daughter informs her a sick man is in their yard, Honor Gillette rushes out to help him. But that “sick” man turns out to be Lee Coburn, the man accused of murdering seven people the night before. Dangerous, desperate, and armed, he promises Honor that she and her daughter won’t be hurt as long as she does everything he asks. She has no choice but to accept him at his word.
But Honor soon discovers that even those close to her can’t be trusted. Coburn claims that her beloved late husband possessed something extremely valuable that places Honor and her daughter in grave danger. Coburn is there to retrieve it — at any cost. From FBI offices in Washington, D.C., to a rundown shrimp boat in coastal Louisiana, Coburn and Honor run for their lives from the very people sworn to protect them, and unravel a web of corruption and depravity that threatens not only them, but the fabric of our society
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It keeps the reader guessing from cover to cover. I loved that you never knew for sure who was gonna be the bad guy and who was gonna wind up being the good guy. The characters were very strong and I especially liked the little girl Emily and her mother Honor. Coburn is one of those love to hate bad boys but a very believable character. I wasn’t thrilled with the ending but all in all a very good book.
