Nothing is for certain except for death and taxes, but detective Madison Knight’s not going to roll over easily. Not even when her adversary is a Russian Mafia hit man who almost killed her months earlier. She’s confident he’s back in town and set on finishing the job, but she refuses to give into her fear.
Terry walked around in front of her. “We should get you into protective custody.”

“He might be back, but he hasn’t threatened me,” she pointed out.
“That’s what you’re clinging to?” Terry threw his arms up. “God, you’re so stubborn.”
“I’m determined to stay on the case and remain objective.” Even to her own her ears, it sounded like she lacked conviction, especially in regard to the latter part.
