Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Once a wife, mother, and witness to a gruesome crime, Leah Trenton was extended a miraculous olive branch in the form of the state's protected witness program. But for this second chance at life, Leah would have to leave behind her Midwestern roots to the northernmost tip of Maine. Alone and isolated along the banks of the Allagash River, she is determined to focus on the present, on her reclaimed future, but the demons of her past are relentlessly chipping away at Leah's protected hideaway. Meanwhile, in the wake of their father's untimely death, Leah's children are sent to stay with her, though they are desperate to return back home. They embark on a cross country homeward journey but before they reach their destination, danger finds them and it is Leah who must come out of her seclusion to search for and protect her children. Told with the deft plotting and enthralling storytelling of a genre master, these two captivating chase narratives will converge along the rugged Allagash River, in the wilds of Maine, where the wills, morals, and ingenuity of a broken family will be tested against all odds."--Publisher description.

    Nina Morgan loses everything when she cooperates with the FBI's investigation of her boss, private security mogul J. Corson Lowery. Desperate to free her husband and children from Lowery's wrath, Nina persuades the Blackwells, elite contract killers, to fake her death. Since then, she's been living as Leah Trenton, a wilderness guide in Maine's remotest corner. But, when Nina's husband dies suddenly, she's reunited with her kids, posing as their long-lost "Aunt Leah" and is determined not to abandon them again, even though she knows it will put her back on Lowery's radar. At the same time, Dax Blackwell (last seen in If She Wakes, 2019), heir to the killers who faked Nina's death, needs a job that will put the Blackwell name back on the underworld's lips. Dax will be there when Lowery's killers finally track Nina down, but to what end? Cat-and-mouse tension peaks in a backcountry showdown fueled by well-placed twists; a must-read for fans of wilderness thrillers. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
