A Family of Strangers Matt Bolt. A top homicide detective before he made one-almost fatal-mistake and ended up with a bullet in his chest, another in his leg. And not to complicate matters, his son-a child he's seen only twice in ten years-is placed in his care. Bolt's life is a shambles, his house a wreck-and he can't cook. Worse, his son seems to hate him. Then, as if he doesn't have enough. troubles, he's suddenly stuck with Virginia Carney, a woman running from her past. Running for her life. Matt Bolt's a stubborn man; even he admits that. He's never asked anyone for help, but he needs it now. Still, he has two questions: First, is Ginny's presence in his home likely to be a danger to his son? Second, can she cook?
