US Marshal Casey Sloane's latest assignment is to escort a local newspaper report to testify in a trial in Washington DC. She and her team are joined by Marshal EJ Queen from the DC office - and Casey used to work with him.
EJ Queen has always admired Casey and may have even had some interest in her, but she was dating his friend. (The relationship was not what he thought it was and once he learns the truth, things begin to make much more sense). The team is quickly thrown off course when their local office is bombed, and they are now on their own with the witness - no backup, no plane tickets, no safety net. Having to think and plan on the fly, with danger coming at them from every turn (there were quite a few "we're safe, no we're not" moments), will the witness make it to testify? How far will their enemy go to stop them? Who even is the enemy?
Another action packed installment in this strong offering from Nancy Mehl! I was provided a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for my honest opinion.
