Book description
HOW FAR WOULD YOU GO
TO PROTECT YOUR FAMILY?
Phil Broker and Nina Pryce moved to Glacier Falls, Minnesota, seeking some peace and rest. No one in the wintry backlands knows about them or how, just a few months back, they were major players in averting a serious act of terrorism—one that has left them both physically and psychologically shaken.

But when a schoolyard bully provokes their daughter, Kit, and she gives him a bloody nose, the Broker family is set in the crosshairs of a vengeful local clan, notorious for violence and criminal behavior, that includes ex-con Gator Bodine, who knows a thing or two about Broker's past as an undercover cop. And when Gator learns of Broker's role in a drug sting that resulted in the death of a mobster's son, he lets the mob boss know just where to find Broker.

As Broker finds himself caught between a band of backwoods meth cookers and a hit man bent on revenge, he has no choice but to take justice into his own hands to keep his family safe.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0060570210, Mass Market Paperback)

Nina Pryce, one of a select few women attached to the Army's elite Delta Force, is on an extended medical leave, recovering from a firefight with a terrorist that claimed the lives of two teammates and left her badly injured. While her body has begun to heal, her psychic wounds are still raw; unable to care for her daughter, repair the damage to her marriage, or face the fact that her military career is over, she and her family take refuge in a remote Minnesota town. But trouble seems to follow in her wake, and what begins as a schoolyard fight between her daughter and a bullying classmate soon escalates into a terrifying standoff with a clan of backwoods methamphetamine "cookers" and a hitman bent on revenge against Nina's husband Phil Broker, a former undercover cop. Logan expertly balances the tough and the tender, as Broker attempts to nurse his wife back to health, protect eight-year-old Kit from the effects of her mother's post-traumatic depression, and guard those he loves from the legacy of his own violent past. Logan's solid pacing, strong narrative drive, and expert rendering of two complex characters whose unusual relationship is as fascinting as they are make this sixth title in an excellent series a standout guaranteed to keep the reader's attention riveted until the last page. --Jane Adams
