ABOUT THE BOOK


A loner, trying to forget. A community--and a woman--who need for him to remember...
Broken relationships and unfulfilled promises scatter themselves across Wayne's past like burned-out craters. His background in military special-ops is something he's trying to forget. But when he gets himself sweet-talked into helping a quirky group of seniors who've been scammed, he discovers it will take a lot more than muscle and nerve. Breach a conman's high-security estate to recover stolen money? No problem. Become part of community? Love again? Not on your life.

A lawyer with her own painful past is intrigued by Wayne and asks him to take on another unusual case--Tatanya's wealthy employer believes he's been visited by...an angel? Did a messenger from God in a pinstripe suit truly bring a divine warning, or is this merely another cruel hoax? Tatanya is willing to trust Wayne with her boss's life, but she's not sure she's ready to trust him with her own wounded heart.

With a financial analyst's skills and a warrior's tenacity, Wayne races to unmask dangerous forces hiding behind a corporate veil. But he will need all his resources--and then some--against an unseen enemy bent on destroying his fragile bid for a second chance at life...and love.

All he wanted was to put his past behind him. But now it's the only thing that will save them...

This was my first book to read by Davis Bunn, and he did not disappoint! I was immediately pulled in to Wayne's character and the others he comes in contact with. I did not hardly put the book down until I was done. One thing I really appreciate is, Davis did a great job of keeping this action-packed book clean where I can hand this to my teenagers and not be concerned about what they're reading. I will definitely be reading more of his books!

Favorite line in book: The worst kinds of addiction are those of the heart. Anger and bitterness don't wound the body like drugs, they gnaw deep down...and hollow out your soul. [But] no matter what you carry with you, the Lord can make something good of this, if you let Him.
