(From the publisher):
Deputy U.S. Marshal Juliet Longstreet is a dedicated federal officer who's met and mastered her share of vicious criminals over the course of her career—but none worse than Bobby Tatro. Now, Tatro has been released from prison—and the threats he made against her four years before are fresh in Juliet's mind.
Juliet's watching her back and wondering how and when Tatro will make his assault when Special Forces officer Ethan Brooker drops back into her life. Haunted by his wife's death, Brooker is a loose cannon who regularly accepts even the most dangerous missions. He's focused on a new mission, something involving Tatro, and he can't—or won't—reveal the details to Juliet.
As quickly as he reappears, Ethan is gone again, off on his mission to South America where he hopes to find and detain Tatro. Though he successfully rescues a kidnapped agent sought by the U.S. Government, Tatro has already fled the scene. After he finds evidence that makes it clear that the sadistic criminal is still after Juliet, Ethan's first thought is to get back to New York and warn her.
Then Juliet returns home to find her doorman dead, her apartment trashed and her niece, who's been visiting from Vermont, terrified and locked in the bedroom while Tatro menaces her through the flimsy door. She takes him down, but now she wants answers from Ethan.
The two agree to team up, and even as they fight their growing attraction to each other, they're racing to stop a ruthless killer—and his mysterious cohorts. The trail takes them north to Juliet's family in Vermont … and into the heart of a dangerous web of international intrigue, greed, deceit—and murder.
