Abstract:

Police Lieutenant Pheobe MacNamara found her calling at an early age, when a violently unstable man broke into her family's home, trapping and terrorizing them for hours. Now she's a Savannah's top hostage negotiator, who puts her life on the line everyday to defuse powder-keg situations. Pheobe knows when to reach out and when to pull back- and when to jump in and take action, even if it means risking everything. It's satisfying work-and sometimes those skills come in handy at home when Pheobe deals with her agoraphobic mother, still traumatized by the break n after all these years, and her precious seven-year-old daughter, Carly. It's exactly that heady combination of steely courage and sensitivity that first attracts Duncan Swift to Pheobe. After watching her talk to one of his employees off a roof ledge, he is committed to keeping his intrguing, take-charge woman in his liafe. Pheobe's used to working solo, but she is finding that.
