A Peyton Cote Novel #1
Having spent the last seven years in Texas, Border Patrol Agent Peyton Cote is returning home to northern Maine, hoping it will be a safer environment for her young son.
But the criminal element has turned what was once a quiet corner of the country into an illicit trade route . . . and there’s no telling what they’ll do to protect their interests.
When Peyton finds a baby abandoned in a frozen field near the border, she’s pulled into a deadly conspiracy that puts everything—her life, her career, her family—at risk.
