Necessity is the mother of invention and Madeleine had to invent something, all right: herself. She was on the run, in the fast lane, moving from town to town across the States, changing her identity, once, twice, as many times as necessary. Necessity hath no law, there was no law in any of this; those who were after her were outside the law; she had abandoned child, husband, wealth. First she had to save herself, and to save herself she had to change. That was what the money was for. She'd had to take it. The diamonds were for Ellen. First flight, before the fierce love force of a mother for her child could change to action: and nature must obey necessity. Brian Garfield's stunning new novel is set against the background of organized crime. Striking and fast paced, it is an intensely human drama of one woman's confrontation with the brute strength of corruption; a battle that for her could have only one ending.
