When a five-foot-nothing lawyer's client goes missing, nothing will get in the way of her efforts to find him—not even a violent terrorist cell, a trained assassin, and an opioid-trafficking ring.
You guessed it. Sasha McCandless-Connelly is back.
When Sasha's client is a no-show for his federal sentencing hearing in a bulk money smuggling case, the presiding judge is not amused. He gives her the weekend to locate the guy or face the consequences.
She tracks down her client in a remote West Virginia town, but it's not the end of her problems—it's just the beginning. He's being held hostage by violent men who are convinced he's the key to eight million dollars that have gone missing from a terrorist organization's coffers.
After a day passes with no word from Sasha, an increasingly worried Leo leaves the kids with a friend and heads to West Virginia in search of his wife. He arrives only to end up in the middle of a massive drug-trafficking investigation.
Cut off from one another and from any means of communication and surrounded by players who aren't who they seem to be, Sasha and Leo each figure out half of the story. Now, they're running out of time to put it all together.
But anyone who knows Sasha and Leo knows better than to bet against them.
About the author
USA TODAY Bestselling Author Melissa F. Miller was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Although life and love led her to Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington, D.C., and, ultimately, South Central Pennsylvania, she secretly still considers Pittsburgh home.
In college, she majored in English literature with concentrations in creative writing poetry and medieval literature and was stunned, upon graduation, to learn that there's not exactly a job market for such a degree. After working as an editor for several years, Melissa returned to school to earn a law degree. She was that annoying girl who loved class and always raised her hand. She's clerked for a federal judge, worked for major international law firms, and started a two-person law firm with her lawyer husband.
Now, powered by coffee, she writes crime fiction and homeschools her children. When she's not writing, and sometimes when she is, Melissa travels around the country in an RV with her husband, three kids, and their cat.
