Requirements: ePUB Reader, 2.16 mb
Overview: An isolated getaway for two in the mountains.
Four desperate men on the run.
One shared moment of truth.
WHEN maverick P.I. Evan Buckley wins a free trip for two to an exclusive luxury hotel buried in the mountains of upstate New York, a well-earned rest should be guaranteed. After almost meeting his maker on his last case, he needs it. But when an armed gang on the run from a botched robbery that left a man dead invade the hotel and take Evan’s partner Gina hostage along with the other guests and their spirited seven-year-old daughter, Evan’s got his work cut out.
As the armed men become increasingly desperate and more violent, one of them develops an unhealthy obsession with Gina. Cut off from help, Evan will do anything to save her and the other hostages, but his daring plan could get them all killed if she fails to play her perilous and crucial role.
And as if that wasn’t enough, the old hotel has got a few shameful secrets of its own. Only one thing’s for sure – there ain’t no such thing as free.
