Jessie Dawn Cutler is a relationship banker in Manhattan, a woman climbing the rungs of the high-finance ladder on her way to the top. Morgan Byrd is an aging mercenary soldier, suffering a crisis of conscience as profound as his bank account is low. When Jessie learns that her biggest client is a criminal and a killer--protected from inside and outside the bank--she becomes his next target. It'll take all every resource she has, and the most unlikely of allies, if she hopes to survive.
