Megan yearns to find a career suitable for her new situation, one that keeps her protecting women who’ve been trampled upon amidst her own divorce. James is her 1st date, a blind one, and at the pace it’s igniting she has no time to wonder how she’ll handle the dangers of criminal activity. Who is her date anyway? They hook up from an online service and things progress quickly.

Two prominent women step in to help them, an opera singer and a cancer patient on the edge of destruction from chemotherapy. Meanwhile, Megan wonders if she could do this line of work, as she already helps a young mother, Maria, and her daughter, Hope, but doesn’t know the mob and police are after them. James has his forces buddies teach Megan a few basics through personal classes. He realizes she has a sixth sense being clued in sometimes when he is not.
A few other characters light up the pages including Nate, Rebekka, and Suzanne. There’s a triple murder and spying going on through surveillance. The thrill is kept up by the constant barrage of spying, with secrets, and Megan’s heightened anxiety by it all.
