"With a foreword by Iris Johansen" -- Front cover.
Summary, etc.:
"Kendra Michaels, blind before gaining her sight via a revolutionary surgical procedure, offers her razor-sharp senses to assist her friend Jessie Mercado in a baffling case. An army vet and former bodyguard for the rich and famous, Jessie has faced all kinds of danger but one thing the motorcycle-riding private investigator has never encountered before is an incarceration consultant. Preparing wealthy people to go to prison is big business. When Owen Blake of Mamertine Consulting hires Mercado to find his missing partner, their suspect list is filled with recently released white-collar criminals, a few drug kingpins, and a couple of murderers to keep things interesting. As witnesses turn up dead and car chases leave destruction in their wake, Jessie and Kendra learn just how far someone will go to keep the fate of one man hidden. But why? Together they must hunt down the lethal secrets of Blake's company, hell-bent on staying one step ahead of disaster" -- Amazon.com.

    When CIA observational and analytical wizard Kendra Michaels refers a client to her pal, private investigator Jessie Mercado, it's far from a typical missing person case. The vanished individual is Carl Ferris, partner with Owen Blake in a firm that provides unique services for those about to be imprisoned, everything from arranging physical protection on the inside to managing the minutiae of their lives on the outside. Although Jessie would prefer to work solo, her new friends-with-benefits relationship with movie superstar Jake Brice gives her some added muscle and perspective. Ricocheting from Ventura Beach to the desert east of L.A., their sleuthing plunges them deep into the world of corporate finance and for-profit prisons, where a well-connected executive employs deadly means to protect her secrets. As a key secondary player in the Kendra Michaels series, Jessie Mercado has been steadily coming into her own. Physically unstoppable, intellectually nimble, and emotionally grounded, Jessie deserves to carry the action in what promises to be a breakout direction for the prolific Johansen thriller franchise.
