Marshal Dallas Walker hadn't planned to kidnap his former teenage love Joelle minutes before her wedding, but when he senses something is wrong and Joelle ends up drugged, he takes her into "protective custody." With goons on their trail, the unsolved murder of a cruel orphanage director to sort out, and his foster father to protect, Dallas and Joelle race against the clock to get answers and stay alive.
VERDICT Secrets, treachery, passion, and fear fuel the complex, twisting plot of this riveting adventure that is a stellar kickoff to Fossen's (Standoff at Mustang Ridge) six-book miniseries featuring a family of orphaned foster brothers, now all lawmen, and a continuing mystery.
