Matt Edgars follows all the rules and as a Highway Patrolman he expects others to do the same. Finding Katie Myers asleep at a set of lights has him wondering just who she is. When Katie calls him to come rescue her the last thing he expects is to be held at gun point by the very person he is rescuing. With fear radiating off of her, Matt must decide whether to break the rules or break his heart.
Katie Myers has been in Witness Protection for ten long years. Constantly being moved from one location to the next, she has become accustomed to living out of a backpack. When her past catches up with her, her impulse is to run, but with Matt by her side can she find the strength to stay and fight or will the Angel of Death finally get to her?
Katie is one tough woman. Having learnt to survive from an early age in the most hostile situation and then fending for herself in the years after, she has very little trust in anyone.
Matt wants her trust. He wants to help her and protect her, but Katie has a very stubborn streak and will not be dictated to by any man, ever again. With their personalities being so different it is surprising how well connected these two are. They work well together, each wanting to protect the other, not so much to make amends for the past but more to ensure that it doesn’t happen again.
I really enjoyed this story. It has a gritty plot line, a military dictatorship hell-bent on overthrowing the government mixed with a cult following. Katie is the one to bring the leader down but someone out there is still following orders.
Once again with have interaction with the rest of the Edgars clan, and also introduced to US Marshal Frank Castello.
Next book in the series is Seized – Dave and Judy Edgars story
