On what is supposed to be a quiet long weekend in
New Hampshire, Deputy U.S. Marshal Mackenzie Stewart
is viciously attacked at the lakefront cottage of her friend,
federal judge Bernadette Peacham. Mac fends off her
attacker, but he manages to escape. Everything suggests
he's a deranged drifter--until FBI special agent
Andrew Rook arrives.

With Rook, Mac broke her own rule not to get involved
with anyone in law enforcement, but she knows he isn't
up from Washington, D.C., to set things straight between
them. He's on a case.

As the hunt for the mysterious attacker continues, the case
takes an unexpected turn when Mac and Rook return to
Washington and find Bernadette's ex-husband, a powerful
attorney, shot to death. Then Bernadette disappears, and
Mac and Rook realize the stakes are higher than either
had imagined, and a master criminal with nothing left to
lose is prepared to gamble everything.
