Erica Morgan has yet to fully realize what she’s capable of, but when her abusive husband holds a knife to her throat and threatens to kill her, she knows right away she’s not above hiring a hitman. Seeking one out, she discovers that—in fear of his employer—the underworld won’t touch him. She’ll have to bloody her own knuckles to survive, but her loss of innocence will cost her dearly.
