"Oh God, I'm so sorry," Alex said as the stranger whirled around to glare at her. An explanation seemed necessary as he continued to stare at her. "I need to get this deposit in before two o'clock." Alex held up the heavy canvas bag. "I ran all the way here." ‘ From these opening words right down to the last page Brenda M. Boldin's first novel draws the reader into a tale filled with mystery and intrigue.

Alex Masters was unaware her carefully constructed ‘new' life was about to change when she made her breathless rush to deposit the day's receipts for her boss at the Secretarial School where she was now employed. Taken hostage during a daring robbery Alex faces death first at the hands of her abductors and then later by someone she does not suspect at all.
