A female P. I. A handsome flyboy. A risky thirteen-year-old cold case.
Against her father’s wishes, Meg Cavelli’s dream of becoming a private eye is finally a reality, until the past tears back into her life in the form of Seth Truitt. He’s sexier than she remembers, and he needs her help. But the man left her without so much as a by-your-leave, and now her traitorous family has rolled out the fatted calf for him. But Seth could be her answer to solving a compelling case—a criminal psychopath that she and Seth dubbed “the monster” when they were kids.
After eight years in the Army Air Corps, Seth Truitt is back—with a no-strings-attached deal for Meg: he helps in her pursuit of a deranged predator in exchange for helping him with a career ending problem. Since Seth has no intention of letting Meg go again, he’ll stop at nothing to keep her safe from the twisted, unnatural threat that could turn out to be more dangerous than flying P-26 fighters for USAAC.
Will Seth be able to convince his one true love to trust him after he left her flat eight years ago? Can Meg open her heart just a little to accept help from the handsome flyboy?
Joining their minds and hearts might be the only way to stay alive, because somewhere, not far away, the monster lurks…
