Publisher's Summary

Barbara Holloway is a low-key attorney in Eugene, Oregon, who left her father’s high-powered firm to handle small legal problems for local residents and ponder her next move. But while trying to sort out her own future, two people, desperate for help, show up on her doorstep: former pro football player Martin Owens and his wife, Binnie. Binnie, who is mute, met her husband when she sneaked aboard his boat while it was docked in Haiti and smuggled herself into the US. Now Immigration is seeking to deport her back to Haiti, which would be a death sentence. Born to a woman from Belize who was kidnapped and enslaved by pirates, Binnie’s only hope is to prove her and her mother’s real identity. With only days to find the truth and protect Binnie, Holloway sets off for Belize. But what she knows is only the tip of the iceberg in what turns out to be one of her most complex, compelling, and dangerous cases yet.

Out of sequence

This book is very strange. It is not the latest installment, rather it appears to be an old manuscript that was brushed up and turned into a book. It appears to fit in the middle of the series and unless you know this, the first several chapters are spent in, HUH mode. The characters and dialog are flat. I think it was discarded at some point and then the author went back and tried to make it into a book. The worst of a good series.
