College student Courtney Middleton disappeared fifteen years ago. Everyone presumed she was dead...

Detective Madison Knight shows up at the local train station in the aftermath of a fatal shooting, and finds two women killed on scene. One was expecting her first child. The other was a wife and mother of two children and has Madison seeing a ghost from her past. She's convinced the woman is her missing college friend, but why would she change her identity? And where has she been all this time?

There's no lead on the gunman, but eyewitnesses tell of a mysterious young woman who may have triggered him. There's no sign of her either-or another man who is said to watch over her all the time.

As the investigation continues, a drug-trafficking ring is exposed with connections to the Russian Mafia. The girl is one of their runners, and the man shadowing her is one of their handlers. When he's found murdered in his apartment, shot with bullets of the same caliber used in the train station shooting, Madison knows the Russians will retaliate. She also realizes the women weren't killed in some random incident.

As Madison works to figure out that piece of the puzzle, she'll need to stay one step ahead of the mob to beat them to the elusive gunman and the girl. But when saving them puts her life and that of a loved one in danger, Madison finds out too late that the cost for justice comes at too high a price.

An absolutely gripping and addictive crime thriller. Perfect for fans of Angela Marsons, Lisa Regan, and Rachel Caine.
