Seventeen years later, Dante leaves the FBI to take a job with the Dundee Agency, experts on personal security. When the Governor and two state senators from Mississippi ask Dundee to find a runaway, they assign Dante to lead the investigation. Dante is stunned as sixteen year old Leslie looks just like Amy did. He visits influential billionaire G.W. Westbrook and his daughter Tessa to start the inquiries into finding the seemingly happy Leslie. Dante thinks Tessa remotely looks like his Amy. Still, as Dante and Tessa fall in love, she admits that she cannot remember her first seventeen years of life. More to the point is that he must find a teen in trouble, who ran away because she learned that her father was a state-executed rapist, a truth hidden by her beloved mother and grandfather.
