From the Publisher
A brand-new page-turning Holly Barker novel from the perennially
entertaining "New York Times"-bestselling author Stuart Woods.
After Special Agent Holly Barker lets international terrorist Teddy
Fay slip through her fingers for a second time, the CIA thinks she
might want a long vacation, at least until Teddy is captured and
the bad publicity has blown over. So Holly returns to her hometown
of Orchid Beach, Florida, where she had been police chief for many
years. But a very unpleasant surprise awaits her. Many years
earlier, Holly and another female army officer had brought charges
against their commanding officer for sexual harassment, attempted
rape, and rape. Holly had managed to fight him off, but the other
woman, a young lieutenant, had not. The officer in question was
acquitted of all charges, and has also left the army-for a job as
Orchid Beach's new police chief.
Will Holly return to the CIA? Or will she challenge her old
nemesis for control of the Orchid Beach Police Department?
