The old motel by the freeway is his best bet for a distraction-free central location, even if its owner is the one who got away. Someone around her, though, is the man or woman he’s hunting. To flush out the enemy, he’ll have to hide his real identity - and his feelings for Hailey - even if it means she’ll never trust him again.
