"Falling, falling.... Maya was airborne again, suspended between a landless platform above and an inscrutable expanse of water below." Maya's headlong rush into marriage isn't working out...and it isn't the only collision course she's on these days. Her saltwater distractions aside, her father-in-law wants her gunned down for reasons unknown, and her pesky bodyguard - when he's around - seems intent on drowning her in want and regret.
Maya is desperate to hold onto any small part of herself she understands. When escape becomes her only option, she finds herself in a race against a past - and a man - she can't outrun.
