An idyllic cottage. An unlikely suicide. A conspiracy out to blow the lid off the Department of Justice.
Three months ago Quinn Harlowe left the high pressure hallways of the Justice Department to become an independent consultant and have more control over her life--maybe even have a life. But the nirvana of her new career is short-lived when Quinn discovers her friend and former colleague, Alicia Miller, dead outside Quinn's bayside cottage. Suicide? Quinn's doubtful.
Investigating on her own, she soon discovers that someone is following her every move . Huck McCabe claims he's a bodyguard at Breakwater, a high- security compound near Quinn's cottage. But Quinn suspects he's lying, never imagining the truth: McCabe is an undercover agent trying to penetrate a violent network of vigilantes—the same people Quinn has identified. Joined together by a common goal, Quinn and McCabe must take on the fight of their lives…a fight they know could lead to disaster.
