"When an ex-cop goes on the run from his employers, his daughter seeks help from an old friend . . . Tess Grey. Ex-cop Aaron Lacey is on the run from Elite Custodian Services, a protection service of ex-military and police - and his current employers - and they will stop at nothing to track him down. His disappearance results in his daughter reaching out to her old schoolfriend, Tess Grey. But when Tess's mother urges her to turn down helping her friend, Tess begins to question why. Is her mother simply being overprotective, or is there more to her past with Lacey than Tess realises? Why has Lacey gone underground and why are the Elite so determined to catch him? As Tess and her partner Nicolas Villere get involved, they need to figure out who can be trusted and what secrets they are hiding."--Publisher's description.
