Survival is just the beginning.

For three years, ex-CIA agent Barney McLean has been leading a quiet double life in Fortune, California. His peaceful retirement is shattered when two hit men break-in, looking for his long-time girlfriend Angie. But she’s already gone, along with her young son Tony. It turns out, Angie was hiding some dangerous secrets of her own.

A mafia informant in the witness protection program, Angie Simmons—formerly Angela Marchetti—lived in fear ever since she testified against her powerful mobster husband, worried that someday he would track her down. If he catches up to Angie and the kid before McLean does, no one will be able to protect her.

As McLean desperately tries to find Angie, he is pursued by his own past—a rogue CIA agent with a blood vendetta against McLean. He’ll stop at nothing to see McLean dead. Hunted by both the mob and the feds, McLean is on his own now, running out of time and luck as he races across the country to save the woman he loves.

From Publishers Weekly

Jun 01, 1992 – Ex-CIA man Barney McLean returns to his coastal California home one night to find that Angie Simmons, his girlfriend of two years, and her young son have vanished. In their place are two hoods, asking for Angie--violently. McLean kills both in self-defense and sets out to locate his beloved. But McLean must proceed with caution: he has been in hiding, imperiled by a CIA rogue who wants to avenge the supposed suicide of a third agent whose illicit activities McLean had exposed. Fleeing east, he discovers that reticent high school librarian Angie has been in hiding, too--she's actually Angela Marchetti, participant in a federal witness protection program where she took refuge after testifying against the Mafia drug ring led by her husband, the Harvard-educated son of a Philadelphia capo. There isn't much mystery here, as we know that some CIA guys are after McLean and Angie's husband is after his wife and son, but Charbonneau ( The Ice ) supplies believable characters and action aplenty. McLean, dodging bullets and baseball bats right up to the bloody climax, stays on his toes--and keeps readers on theirs as well. Reader's Digest Condensed Book selection.
