The city was hers for a single hour, just the one magic hour, only
hers. Larkin Conner Barkley lives like the City of Angels is hers
for the taking. Young and staggeringly rich, she speeds through the
city during its loneliest hours, blowing through red after red in
her Aston Martin as if running for her life. Until out of nowhere a
car appears, and with it the metal-on-metal explosion of a terrible
accident. Dazed, Larkin attempts to help the other victims. And
finds herself the sole witness in a secret federal investigation.
For maybe the first time in her life, Larkin wants to do the right
thing. But by agreeing to cooperate with the authorities, she
becomes the target for a relentless team of killers. And when the
U.S. Marshals and the finest security money can buy can't protect
her, Larkin's wealthy family turns to the one man money can't buy
-- Joe Pike. Pike lives a world away from the palaces of Beverly
Hills. He's an ex-cop, ex-Marine, ex-mercenary who owes a bad man a
favor, and that favor is to keep Larkin alive. The one upside of
the job is reuniting with Bud Flynn, Pike's LAPD training officer,
and a man Pike reveres as a father. The downside is Larkin Barkley,
who is the uncontrollable cover girl for self-destruction -- and as
deeply alone as Pike. Pike commits himself to protecting the girl,
but when they immediately come under fire, he realizes someone is
selling them out. In defiance of Bud and the authorities, Pike
drops off the grid with the girl and follows his own rules of
survival: strike fast, hit hard, hunt down the hunters. With the
help of private investigator Elvis Cole, Pike uncovers a web of
lies and betrayals, and the stunning revelation that even the cops
are not who they seem. As the body count rises, Pike's biggest
threat might come from the girl herself, a lost soul in the City of
Angels, determined to destroy herself unless Joe Pike can teach her
the value of life...and love.
