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