Kendall Deaton pulls herself and her baby out of a wrecked

plans her immediate escape. Her perilous flight begins.

living hell. Now Kendall is a terrified mother trying to
save her child's life...a reluctant witness who knows too
much about an insidious evil...and a woman surrounded by
forces that will stop at nothing to protect what is "theirs."
