It should be a straight forward missing person case - but Myron Bolitar soon finds he's up against deceit, danger, and the Mob.
Brenda Slaughter is no damsel in distress. Myron Bolitar is no bodyguard. But Myron has agreed to protect the bright, strong, beautiful basketball star. And he's about to find out if he is man enough to unravel the tragic riddle of her life.
Twenty years before, Brenda's mother deserted her. And just as Brenda is making it to the top of the women's pro basketball world, her father disappears too. A major New York sports agent with a foundering love life, Myron has a professional interest in Brenda, which develops into a personal one.
But between them isn't just the difference in backgrounds or the colour of their skin. Between them is a chasm of corruption and lies, a vicious young mafioso on the make, and one secret that some people are dying to keep - and others are killing to protect . . .
