When CIA observational and analytical wizard Kendra Michaels refers a client to her pal, private investigator Jessie Mercado, it's far from a typical missing person case. The vanished individual is Carl Ferris, partner with Owen Blake in a firm that provides unique services for those about to be imprisoned, everything from arranging physical protection on the inside to managing the minutiae of their lives on the outside. Although Jessie would prefer to work solo, her new friends-with-benefits relationship with movie superstar Jake Brice gives her some added muscle and perspective. Ricocheting from Ventura Beach to the desert east of L.A., their sleuthing plunges them deep into the world of corporate finance and for-profit prisons, where a well-connected executive employs deadly means to protect her secrets. As a key secondary player in the Kendra Michaels series, Jessie Mercado has been steadily coming into her own. Physically unstoppable, intellectually nimble, and emotionally grounded, Jessie deserves to carry the action in what promises to be a breakout direction for the prolific Johansen thriller franchise.
