In the White Plains Federal Courthouse, accountant Jessica Delaney testified against her former boss Richard DeGaullo, head of the most powerful New York crime family. To her shock and fear, one juror held out leading to a mistrial and placing Jessica in danger from his expected retaliation. She resentfully gives up family and friends to go into hiding under the Witness Protection Program while that monster is free.

U.S. Marshal Ryan Jackson detests Jessica for her felonious activity, but like the good soldier he was, the former Ranger, knowing the monster set a hit on Delaney, plans to keep her safe. When the nob stalks them, Ryan believes an agent inside the DOJ probably within WitSec feeds the enemy with information. Trusting no one including his boss Alex Trask except his brother in arms Stuart Lanier, Ryan escorts Jessica in isolated woodlands while the mob pursues them.

This is a fabulous WitSec romantic suspense with a great late twist that will stun readers because the clues are there. The chase storyline engages the audience, as mobsters diligently hunt the accountant and the Fed.
