Emily, 4, and her widow mother, Honor, have lived on their own since Eddy was killed in a car accident. Their house is remote by most standards and they live a simple life. All of this changes in an instant when the little girl discovers an injured man lying in their yard. Lee Coburn is an FBI agent who has been deep undercover for a while as he tries to chase out a horrid human trafficker. The Bookkeeper, as the trafficker is known, has just about every level of government and lowlife of society on the payroll. Honor's and Coburn's crossing paths is no coincidence. She holds a secret unbeknownst to her and he intends to find it. It is the final piece of the puzzle. And Eddy might have died protecting it.

I found myself clutching the steering wheel as I drove to and from work, listening to the audio book version. More than once I yelped in disgust when the disc ended, forcing me to eject and insert...the interruption was aggravating. The story that unfolds is tightly woven with webs that stretch from one end of the imagination to the other. This would make a 'sit on the edge of your seat' movie, worthy of the largest bucket of buttery popcorn and bladder buster soda. The reader should be advised that there are two very sexually explicit scenes at the end of the book that leave nothing to the imagination. I loved the book but felt it would have been just as good or better without the smut.
