Ten years ago, Abby's high school sweetheart went missing and was never heard from again. Until now. After receiving an anonymous envelope in the mail containing a St. Christopher medal she had given Kip, she returns to her hometown expecting to find him. Abby want answers as to why he left her and their unborn child.
Kip is nowhere to be found, though, and his parents swear they haven't seen or heard from him. So who sent her the St. Christopher? Is Kip even alive? If not, who killed him. Searching for those answers will lead Abby into a deadly game of cat and mouse.
twist of fate
Special Agent Jesse Bruner is still haunted by the death of her fiancé last year in a bust gone bad. She's now been offered a similar case, to infiltrate a group of suspected terrorists co-founded by an old childhood friend. It's a career opportunity she'd be crazy to pass up, but the last agent who tried to gain access to the group died a horrible death. Just as disturbing is the fact she'll be going undercover with her first true love.

Fate played a cruel trick on him when he introduced her to his best friend and he stole Jesse right out from under him. Teamed up again on a case that could prove to be their most dangerous, they must work together to find the answers they need while trying to ignore the past.
What does fate have in store for them this time?
