Kate O'Brien has been leading a quiet life in small-town Shelter Cove, Arkansas, for the past four years when her past suddenly comes roaring back to life. Four years ago, she and her twin sister were attacked by an elusive serial killer. Only Kate survived, and it was her drawing of the attacker--along with some last-minute evidence--that convicted the suspect.
She's been in witness protection ever since, but new
evidence suggests the convicted man isn't the murderer and she's been
subpoenaed to testify in the new trial. Nervous about the risk, she'll
only agree if the same Marshal who protected her during the original
trial escorts her to St. Louis.
Deputy U.S. Marshal Tony DeLuca
accepts the assignment to bring Kate to the trial, remembering how her
strength impressed him. While in Shelter Cove, however, he gets a call
from his chief, advising them to stay in Shelter Cove until a new
development in the case can be straightened out. But when Kate's safety
is threatened, Tony must race against the clock to keep her alive and
put this ugly case to rest before anyone else gets killed.
Kate is in the Witness Protection program after having witnessed her twin sister being murdered. Upon learning that the man responsible for her murder has been released because his conviction has been overturned. Tony is the Marshall responsible for bringing Kate back to St. Louis so she can testify again. While trying to bring her back both of their lives are in danger. Kate and Tony have to rely on each other and God to see them through the dangers that await them.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes a good mystery. There are twists and turn.
