Meg and her security business partner, Mike, are both ex-cops. Meg avoids the cop scene. Mike doesn't. Mike likes to do a little work on the side and he keeps in touch with his old comrades.
When Mike goes missing, Meg isn't concerned at first. Then a crank call leads her directly into a police investigation into the police themselves, Meg, Mike, and Meg's dead husband Charlie. Meg, who's a little mouthy, a lot independent, and doesn't appreciate being dragged into all of this when she's spent so much time avoiding cops, nonetheless digs in her heels to prove that Mike is neither killing off people nor dealing drugs, which are the police's accusations. The cop in charge of the investigation, Reilly, is determined to get information out of Meg that she doesn't have, and in the meanwhile make sure no one kills her. Which, as the book progresses, becomes more and more likely.
