Patty O’Donnell, pregnant wife of an Irish jockey and a trainer in her own right, finds both her career and her baby’s life in jeopardy when she’s abducted and forced by a pair of con men to help in a racing scam in Argentina. Patty wants nothing to do with it—until she understands the reason for it, and the quest becomes her own.

At stake is a million dollar bet and long-delayed revenge. The con men’s target is a dangerous man who has killed in the past and wouldn’t hesitate to kill again. A man from whom no one is safe, either in the crowded city of Buenos Aires or on the vast sweep of the Argentine pampas.

Patty O'Donnell has everything she could want in life--a loving husband, a job she enjoys, and a year-old daughter she adores. An enemy from the past needs to make a lot of money quickly and believes he can use Patty's skills and talents. Forced to choose between life as his slave and her daughter's safety, Patty sacrifices her own future to save her child.

Every step takes Patty deeper into a world of theft and deception. A scam on the Great Barrier Reef nets two very different results--financial gain, and the unexpected attention of a dangerous crime boss, who offers them both a choice. Serve him, or die.

When Patty O’Donnell married her Irish sweetheart and moved from America to her husband’s small home town on the Irish seacoast, the most dangerous things she had to deal with were the half-ton racehorses in her father-in-law’s stables. But when she and her husband return from a late night out to find their house being searched, she discovers there are far worse things lurking in her bucolic surroundings than temperamental Thoroughbreds.
 
The teenage son of a late family friend brings proof of a long forgotten debt owed by the O’Donnells, part of a cargo lost in a shipwreck over a century and a half ago. He wants the cargo salvaged, and quickly, so he can help his mother free herself from her abusive second husband. The O’Donnells are willing, but the search and salvage mission puts them square in the sights of modern-day pirates, who want the salvage for themselves.
 
Suddenly, Patty finds herself hunted and in a fight for her life, where yielding to panic means a swift and ugly death.
