Then she promised her husband she would never work again, and she settled in to live a happy, quiet life as Jane McKinnon, wife of a surgeon in Amherst, New York. But when a bomb goes off in the middle of a hospital fundraiser, Jane finds herself face to face with the cause of the explosion: a young pregnant girl who has been tracked across the country by a team of hired hunters. That night, regardless of what she wants or the vow she's made to her husband, Jane must transform one more victim into a runner.
