(From the publisher):
is a contemporary, urban story with a Latina protagonist who has three identities. Someone wants her dead. But which identity is the killer after?
At La Guardia, Paloma Dove is running from an assassin in a straw hat. Desperate to board a plane to safety, her escape is aborted when her name is paged. Certain the killer has found her, her fear slams back into overdrive. For a moment Paloma considers surrender, but the thought of her daughter, Maddie, keeps her hope and desire to live paramount. Resourceful, Paloma reverts to a con and secures safe exit. Matters, however, quickly complicate when, Max Laurent, a man she had loved but learned to hate, is also in pursuit. Without money or identification, Paloma must stay ahead of them all until she can find refuge.
Max Laurent, retired FBI agent and Paloma’s old flame, learns she is in danger and sets out on a wayward course to find her. A cat and mouse game ensues. Paloma must outwit the assassin. Max must outwit Paloma. Soon both Max and Paloma return to Buffalo where their paths cross. Joining forces, yet estranged from past emotional bruises, the two gather clues and ask the critical question—which of Paloma’s three identities is the assassin after? Before coming to terms with past misunderstandings and a child long ago abandoned, they must find and eliminate the killer.
