Best-selling author Margaret Thackrey, an ex-Government courier, lives in Oregon with her husband. Now her agent wants her to pen an account of her years in the service, and she agrees, in part to ease her memories of the experience. But Ambrose Decker, whom she'd almost caught assassinating the man he'd been ordered to protect, must eliminate her to avoid being revealed. After causing her husband's death, he chases her from Oregon to her original home on an East Texas farm. There she must finally confront her past-and a determined, vicious killer!
