Romance Suspense

Harry Wong is the victim of identity theft. The bank has foreclosed on his dojo, he owes hundreds of thousands of dollars on credit cards, and his bank account is empty. His dojo has been confiscated and has yellow caution tape across it. Harry was warned he would go to jail if he tries to enter his gym/home to get his personal belongings. His friend, Jack, finds Harry sitting on a curb in his Armani suit, hugging his Ducati, and is barefoot while wondering what in the hell has happened to his life. Jack takes the liberty of breaking into the dojo to get his personal stuff, and while he is there gathers up what few things Harry needs. Jack also finds a basket full of mail that Harry has never opened, so that goes with the other things Jack is taking. It's time to call in reinforcements, and attorney Lizzie Fox gets the first call.

While Harry and Jack are settling in at Jack's apartment, Charles Martin returns to the Vigilante's fortress on Big Pine Mountain. Needless to say, he gets a very cool reception since he left without any explanation. It's up to Myra to decide if Charles stays or goes, and it's a hard decision for her to make. He must earn himself a place on the Vigilante's team, the team he more or less put together. However, when the ladies learn of Harry's problems -- game on! They need Charles's contacts to bring down the ring of ID thieves.

Another lip smacking, good adventure featuring the finest group of kick-butt women in the USA. Fern Michaels's deft writing and fertile imagination always manages to include humor and action in each and every installment of the Sisterhood series, and leaves you wanting more! More! More!

SUMMARY

For the women of the Sisterhood, planning a lavish reception for their longtime ally, attorney Lizzie Fox, at their lux mountain retreat is the ideal way to unwind after their latest successful mission. The only cloud over the happy occasion is that their mentor, Charles, is still mysteriously absent.

But amid the friendly bickering about floral arrangements, cake tiers, and wedding favors, the ladies of Pinewood receive a frantic phone call from Nikki’s fiancé, Jack Emery. Harry Wong – Yoko’s true love and a staunch supporter of the Sisterhood – has become the victim of a ruthless identity theft ring. Harry’s bank accounts have been closed out, his beloved dojo is being foreclosed, and he’s being evicted. Distraught, Yoko is about to rush down the mountain to Harry’s aid when the Sisters intercept her. A situation like Harry’s requires finesse, careful planning, and the Sisterhood’s distinctive brand of vigilante justice…
