Indianapolis attorney Brigit Bauer has always fought for the underdog, whether it’s sitting on the historic preservation board or mediating a gangland truce. But those battlegrounds are nothing compared to the web of deceit she uncovers, leading her through a maze of holding companies to the Chicago mob presence in her city. When a client dies in her place, she realizes she may have followed one lead too many.
Tony Pendrake, a former Navy SEAL and owner of T.P. Security, assists Bree in getting to the bottom of the attempts on her life.

The intensity of the situation leads to a relationship between them, but before they can discover where such a relationship could go, Bree’s newfound trust in Tony is tested in a final lethal encounter with the man who wants her dead.
