Mercy Brennan followed in her father's footsteps in a law enforcement career, but she has no interest in any other connection to him. A U.S. Marshal in St. Louis, Missouri, she's assigned to a joint task force with the St. Louis PD that puts her back into contact with her father and in the sights of St. Louis's most powerful gang.
gang has reason to believe Mercy has possession of some highly sensitive
and incriminating information, her boss assigns Mark St. Laurent--a
Deputy U.S. Marshal and Mercy's ex-boyfriend--to get her out of town
until they can guarantee her safety.
Initially unaware of the
danger she's in and uncomfortable working with Mark, Mercy's frustration
escalates when she discovers the extent her boss and Mark have been
keeping her in the dark. It isn't until a freak ice storm hits,
stranding them at a remote location and out of contact with the district
office, that the full severity of their situation becomes clear. As the
storm worsens, the forces of nature combine with a deadly enemy closing
in to put their lives at imminent risk. Can they survive long enough
for help to arrive--if help is even coming at all?
This takes place in a few weeks time span. But there is lots of action packed into a very short time. The last time Mercy sees her father alive it's almost like he knew it would be the last time he sees her. This sets the stage for Mercy running for her life. Along with Mark her ex-boyfriend and ex-partner and Tally her best friend from grade school. It seems everywhere they turn the bad guys know where to find them. They begin to wonder if someone on the inside isn't betraying them.
I highly recommend this book to everyone. Can't wait for the next book in the series.
I was given this book by the publisher for an honest review. I was not compensated in anyway.
