A MAN WILL GO TO HELL AND BACK TO PROTECT WHAT IS HIS. Police Captain John Iron Hawk's life is a speeding vehicle down a deserted road. A road with his tormented past looming at his back and a future summed up by the black thunder clouds building on the horizon. His relationship with his daughter is nonexistent. And he can't seem to say the words to the woman he loves to make her stay. When Zora Hughes receives a job offer from Cosmopolitan magazine, she knows she has to take it and reestablish her career on the New York fashion scene. She has nothing to keep her on Little River Reservation, even if John is the only man she's ever trusted or loved this completely. John's life is his job, and he has little left over to build something with her. But when a psychopathic killer turns their world upside down, they must dig deep to find the strength to outwit an adversary who will strip them of everything they hold dear...including each other.
