Carl Bowman is a killer. An assassin for hire whose latest assignment is to take out a ten-year-old girl. He doesn't know what she's done or why someone wants her dead. He just knows he has to kill her. But with the girl in his sights, Carl can't bring himself to pull the trigger. Instead he goes on the run, taking her with him.
In a small village in Southern Spain, Julia Martin's carefully constructed life is falling apart. Her husband and his mistress have been killed in an explosion in their home, and her daughter, Rebecca, has disappeared. Julia has been fleeing the secrets of her past for over a decade, and it seems they've finally caught up with her.
To get her daughter back, Julia must confront a truth she's spent years running from and call on an acquaintance she's done everything in her power to avoid.
