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.

“Right now,” growled a familiar voice.
A hand reached out and grabbed Trevor by the shoulders. He struggled until the unseen assailant place a cloth over his mouth. The last thing he remembered was a man lowering him to the ground.
Dani looked into the eyes of the man in the middle. Ice chilled her blood, and her lungs betrayed her when they refused to draw in air. She had no doubts, evil filled the heart of Don Francisco Morales.
