Susan Chandler's husband had vanished without a trace . . . along with their one-year-old daughter. Now, seven years later, his car has been pulled from a river in some backwater Mississippi town. Inside was the skeleton of her husband and an empty baby seat. The local sheriff is calling what happened an accident, but for Susan, things just don't add up.
Major Jeb Bedford has returned to Mississippi with only one thing on his mind -- to get his wounded body back in working order so he can rejoin his Delta Force team as soon as possible. Susan Chandler's quiet desperation to find her daughter, however, echoes his own struggle and his own determination. And then somehow, protecting Susan from those who don't want her to discover the truth about her husband's death becomes more important to Jeb than anything else.
