For Charlie Fox, New York was supposed to be a fresh start. An ocean away from the brutal memories of her days in Special Forces. A continent gone from the father who turned his back when she needed him most. She soon discovers, though, that the memories obey no geographic boundaries. And the father? He turns up in New York, apparently bent on self-destruction, and happy to take Charlie along for the ride. It's no secret that he disapproves of her work as a bodyguard, or of her relationship with her boss. But he has other secrets, secrets someone is willing to kill for. Sure, Charlie has wanted to kill her father on more than one occasion. But she'll be damned if she'll let someone else do the job.
