Haunted by a past she didn’t choose. Desperate for a future she can redeem.
Three years ago, teen assassin Emily Brelin escaped the rogue general who trained her. She fled across the globe to Golden City, New York, where she met a professor who offered a new start. The professor adopted her and kept her location and genetic enhancements a secret.
But now Emily’s murky past is about to catch up with her.
When the professor dies, her will names Detective Victoria Tacket as the new guardian. Emily worries her secrets will be exposed, and she fears the general will kill anyone to recapture her. So rather than risk the detective’s life, she plans to run away.
Scarred by loss. Driven to protect.
Detective Vick Tacket is shocked when she hears her best friend has died. She even more stunned when she learns her friend had a hidden dependent and named Vick–a single woman with no material interest–as the girl’s guardian. Convinced she’d be a terrible mother, Vick plans to decline guardianship, until the teen disappears.
Vick scours the streets of Golden City, New York, searching for Emily–but what she discovers threatens both their lives.
