Monica Townsend returns to the city bringing a surprise - Chase Travers' daughter, Hope, whom she had given birth to seven years earlier. Various emotions arise, and reactions take place, as family members learn of Hope's existence.
In another part of the city, private investigator, Dee Fleischman, is scared of the masked man who chases her; the last time, she just managed to escape. Does it have anything to do with her recent questions about Tyler Washington? Is she getting close to finding the man who stole her daughter's heart so long ago?
What about Jack Steele, the broken man preparing to pull the trigger which will put him out of his misery? It was a job he decided long ago that belonged to Tyler Washington, before he disappeared. Will Jack succeed with his mission or will a higher power than himself, finally, bring redemption?
"This is a well and intricately written novel. So much so, that I could feel the pain this couple went through. I thought it was wrong of Monica to keep her daughter a secret and to make the one other person who knew about her, keep the secret, too. But the way everyone reacted to finding out about the child was well done and believable." - Jo-Anne B, Amazon
