About this ebook

They’ll risk everything to save the ones they love…

Charlie Hart suddenly has to navigate the real world. She’s not sure she’s cut out for normal anything, let alone facing down her abuser or partnering in Mitch’s PI business. She nearly runs again—but her friend Ian has vanished into the middle of his worst nightmare, and she needs Mitch’s help to get him back.

Mitch Saunders regrets pushing Charlie to join Retrieval, Inc. The Ian Cross investigation is driving them further apart, and she’ll never forgive him if he sidelines her. But the search is too dangerous—he can't lose someone else he loves.

Then again, the rescue mission may cost both their lives—or worse, leave them all trapped.
