"Escaping unwanted media attention after a notorious incident, Ramsey Hunt retreats into the solitude of a cabin high in the Rockies. But his isolation is shattered when he finds a small girl unconscious and hurt in the forest. When strangers suddenly come into his private meadow, their intent to kill, she can't help him. She's mute. Molly Santera, the little girl's mother, catches up with Ramsey and her daughter, mistaking him for the kidnapper. When she discovers that he instead saved her daughter, there's little time for thanks. The three of them are pursued by men who want them badly. Eventually, they go for sanctuary to the Chicago compound of Molly's father, crime boss Mason Lord. Even there, however, the pursuers prove as relentless as their motives are baffling. With an unexpected assist from FBI agents Dillon Savich and Lacey Sherlock, Molly and Ramsey begin to unravel the clues, and in the process make an astonishing discovery as to the true center of the target"--Front and back flaps.
