Teresa Tommasino has always avoided trouble. Never married, she's gone through life quietly, content to be a Brooklyn schoolteacher. She knows the Mafia run her neighborhood, but as long as she keeps her head down, she figures she'll be safe.
But trouble has a way of slipping into even the most peaceful life. After witnessing a terrible crime, Teresa is drawn into a world of gangsters, fear, and deception. With a contract out on her life, she agrees to a desperate plan: a car bomb, a faked death, and an escape from New York.
Now Teresa is on the run through a world bigger and more frightening than she ever imagined, her only protection an enigmatic Irishman. James Corcoran seems to be everything she needs: charming, resourceful, and brave. But he, too, is running from something, and he has secrets of his own.
Drawn to James, Teresa will have to balance her survival with her slowly awakening desire. Will the terrified witness and the repentant criminal find their way to a future together, or will their pasts destroy them?
