The last thing Anna Silver expected was a panicked telephone message from her ex-convict father, stating something about having taken money....again.....and running for his life. He also says she is not safe and has to look up his ex-cellmate, Brent Carver, the only other person he trusts in this world. She gets the message just as the police, who have come to notify her of her father's deadly 'accident', leave. Scared witless and not particularly trusting of anyone, including her mother and stepfather, Anna immediately grabs the bare essentials and takes off for Vancouver Island, where she hopes to find the man who became her father's best friend in jail.
When an unexpected visitor surprises Brent Carver in the middle of the night, the last person he expected to see was the daughter of the man who had become like a father to him over the years. He is shocked to find out his friend is dead and although he avoids social interaction at all cost, he can tell Anna is in trouble and he owes it to her father to help and protect her at all cost. He calls in the help of the few contacts he has, to try and find out what is going on.
