Busted by BCI agent Eugene Booker and sheriff’s deputy Suzie Jensen in a joint prostitution sting operation, accused call girl Cynthia “Cheyenne” Goodwin skips bail after making a plea agreement with the Ohio’s Attorney General’s office and county prosecutors. Strange behavior for a defendant with a deal.
Hired to track down and bring the girl in, bounty hunter Grace deHaviland soon discovers there’s more to the case than her skip’s odd decision to jump bail, forcing Grace to confront more than one old enemy. As she sorts through the lies, the half-truths, and risks her friendships with Booker and Suzie, Grace must ultimately face the most dangerous adversary of her career–for the second time!
How high a price will she pay for a matter of justice?
