"First and foremost, a thriller, with dangery and duplicity around every turn...doesn't stint on the auction...a lean narrative with few wasted words. Suspense and romance blend beautifully in this story of two lost souls. -- Kirkus Reviews

Max Kugar is on the run.

Max Kugar is a dealer in vintage sporting and military treasures, a veteran of Afghanistan combat, and owns a history of heartbreak with women named Carolyn.

Another Carolyn, an unsuccessful actress, retains Kugar to broker the sale of her priceless Japanese sword inherited from her grandfather who obtained the sword at the end of World War II, under mysterious circumstances.

Now Kugar must broker the sword without attracting the attention of the Japanese or US Governments, while eluding Carolyn’s psychopath brother and his drug cartel partners, who are determined to own the priceless sword for their own devices--at any cost—and killing anyone in their way.

Kugar and Carolyn go on the run as they search for a buyer—attempting to stay alive while their pursuers are determined they will not.

Ella’s been angry ever since, building up a wall to protect herself. But that all changes the day she opens a newspaper and finds those ten little words printed in a classified ad.

Ella refuses to believe her mother could still be alive—that would mean she did want to live, just not with her daughter. So she throws herself into finding out exactly what happened all those years ago, determined to extinguish even the tiniest flame of hope—for Ella, hope is torture.

But rather than settling things once and for all, what Ella discovers shatters her world. As she pieces together the truth behind her mother’s disappearance, she learns that the words are not what she thought.

Now she knows the truth. Is it possible that Ella can allow herself to love—and be loved—once again?
