Jessie Dawn Cutler is a relationship banker, a single woman in Manhattan, 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’s biggest client is revealed as a criminal and a killer—protected from within and outside the bank—she becomes a target. But Jessie is courageous, resourceful, and when she teams up with Morgan, it’s just possible that both of their lives can be saved….

This novel was optioned by the late Mace Neufeld (No Way Out, Sum of All Fears, the Jack Ryan and The Equalizer series, etc.)–a guy who knows a great thriller when he reads one.

(Available in trade paperback, ebook, and audio book.)
