Mandi Winslow plots to kill her ex, Frederick, and his tart, “Boobs.” Ambush them on their wedding day, no less. Every step she plans to the most minute detail, including where she will park and what she will say to police when she’s arrested.
Mandi also rehearses various scenarios in her head to prepare for anything. Except she couldn’t prepare for him.
Mandi’s murderous plans to off Fred and Boobs are thwarted—or at least put on hold—by a handsome man in need of help. Claiming to be a federal agent on the run from a treasonous militia wanting him dead, he says he needs to hide out at her home
for a few days. But it’s not a request. It’s a demand.
Despite the seeming randomness of their meeting and his subsequent abduction of her at gunpoint in the name of needing her home for “his” safety, Mandi soon discovers the terrifying truth: Her involvement is anything but mere happenstance.
Is her captor really the “good guy” federal agent he touts? Or simply one of the wacky militiaman he’s supposedly hiding from while holding her captive, perhaps for his own dark purposes. Regardless, she fears she may be falling in love with him.
As Mandi struggles to survive the dictates of her captor, and later the wrath of greedy hillbillies coupled with sophisticated power-hungry militants, bullets fly and romance ignites in this fast-paced A Killer Among Us psychological thriller.
