Murder is the catalyst pushing Carrie Overton headlong into the arms of the hitman sent to kill her.
Carrie Overton is in deep trouble. All she wanted to do was escape her alcoholic and drug-addicted mother and leave the memory of the son she lost behind. Carrie’s opportunity for freedom comes at a high price when she leaves home with Travis Montgomery, a man twenty years her senior. A man who harbors shocking secrets connected to her past.
After a botched robbery in which Travis forces her to help him steal two million dollars from a drug lord, leaves two people dead, Carrie decides to add a third victim to her list, and Travis is left lying on the floor. Eager to start over, Carrie takes the stolen money and travels to the small mountain town of Laurel, Pennsylvania, where she lies about her past and relaxes into her new life. Before long, Carrie’s lies are piling up, and her crimes are about to catch up to her.
Nicholas D’Angelo is at the top of his profession. Known as a ghost, a contract killer for one of the biggest drug lords in Miami, his assignment is simple. Find the people who stole the two million dollars, recover the money and eliminate them.
With a hitman on her trail, Carrie is forced to make a choice. Trust the hitman who vows to disobey his orders and protect her. Or stay in Laurel and face the drug lord determined to end her life. Either one might kill her.
