When Trevor Willis offers Dani Carpenter her dream job as director of a new camp for children, she is thrilled. Dani intends to keep Trevor, a family friend, at arm’s length. But her heart changes toward him as they team up to protect Ady, the young daughter of a kidnapped scientist.
After Trevor testifies against the son of Don Francisco Morales, a major supplier of heroin into the United States, Morales (aka the Scorpion) targets Trevor in a personal vendetta to destroy his reputation and then destroy everyone Trevor loves.
With Ady tucked away in a secure location, Dani and Trevor embark on a chase that takes them from the forests of the Pacific Northwest to the jungles of Mexico. They must stop the Scorpion before he strikes again.

Trevor paced the length of the safe house. I’m going crazy—I have to get out of here. His cell phone pinged with a text message was from a phone number he didn’t recognize.
They’re on to you.
The text sent a tremor down Trevor’s spine. He went upstairs, removed his suitcase from the closet, and packed his clothes. Today, I take back my life.
“I’m not sure how long I’ll be able to elude the authorities,” Trevor said quietly into his cell phone. He stared out the curtain of the hotel room. The green glow of the Vacancy sign flashed on his skin. “We had a close call this morning in Newberg.”
“How’s Dani holding up?” Don asked over the airwaves.
Through the door to the adjoining room, Trevor glanced at her still form on the bed. “She’s sleeping now. I don’t know why she believes in me, but I’m grateful she does.”
A calm that spoke louder than rage enveloped Don Francisco. He seized a pen from his desk and grasped the writing instrument so hard his knuckles turned white. The quiet intensity of his voice could not hide his anger. “I want his name. He will learn what happens when he threatens my family.”
With a slight movement, Don Francisco snapped the pen in half. Red ink splattered like blood on his hands and clothes.
