And then‚ into his life barrels a girl he had never expected to see again—the daughter he’d given up fifteen years before.

Vida‚ now twenty and a wounded Iraqi war veteran‚ is AWOL‚ and running for her life. She is desperate‚ and has come to Pack for help. She believes that an American soldier murdered her friend in Iraq‚ and is now coming after her.

“A middle-aged veteran’s quiet life ends when his daughter begs him for help. . . Fans of Pomeroy’s Abby Silvernale (Cold Moon Home, etc.) will welcome another strong heroine who must overcome physical and mental challenges to survive.”-Kirkus, January 15, 2013

“Reynolds “Pack” Packard, the lead in this stand-alone from Pomeroy is not your average protagonist: he’s grizzled, antisocial, and lives off the grid in a rundown cabin. . . Pomeroy’s characters are rough around the edges but expertly drawn, making this fast-paced thriller both intriguing and believable.”-Publishers Weekly, January 1, 2013
