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.
