It was safer that way. For both of them. But now the secrets of the past have come stalking the present, and suddenly Barney must find out just who Angie really is. And do it without blowing his own cover. No mistakes, either. Because where some secrets are concerned, mistakes can be fatal.

But the quiet was about to be shattered. For both Barney and Angie once had other lives--dangerous lives--and now their old enemies have found out where they are. As Angie runs for cover, Barney is forced to rely on lethal skills he hoped he'd never need again. Because stalk and be stalked is now the name of the game. And the winner will be the one who walks away alive.
