Chaos shatters Amanda Sloane’s controlled world when she puts her life on hold to search for her missing sister, trading Chicago courtrooms and designer suits for sweat-soaked ventures into the Yucatan. Amanda suspends her legal crusade for women wronged to explore uninhabited lands and investigate tourist locales. Deceptions, death threats and Amanda’s haunted past await her as she scours Cancun, racing against time to rescue her sister. Will she survive paradise?
Book One in the Trapped trilogy
Crackerjack divorce attorney Amanda Sloane spends her life defending the soon-to-be-ex-wives of Chicago’s upper crust, but her orderly world begins to crumble when her estranged father persuades her to help search for the half-sister she’s resented for thirty years.
Amanda drags along computer-geek-turned-attorney Chad Cooper, and together they chase across the Yucatan, pursuing an ever-changing string of leads. On their trek through the tropics, the duo encounters treacherous alliances, attacks on their associates, and a deadline for a hefty ransom.
Amanda digs up more than clues when their search collides with the past she believed long buried. Old memories chip away at pretenses, threatening to crush Amanda’s carefully constructed life.
Time is running out. When the bullets start to fly, Amanda and Chad wonder: who will escape Cancun?
