Former Navy SEAL Marc Deveraux teams up with Forensic Instincts to protect the life of nurse and former flame Madeline Westfield, whose would-be killer blames her for the death of a hospital administrator. Who wants Madeleine Westfield dead? And why? Forensic Instincts' first order of business is to find out who's targeting their client. Under the leadership of Casey Woods, the investigative team has the resources to do just that, working inside the law--and outside it. FI's strength is its members, among them Casey's associate Marc Devereaux, former navy SEAL and a man who's equal to any situation. Madeline's case hits too close to home for Marc. She's the only woman he ever loved, and she's his only weakness. Now a nurse at Manhattan Memorial, she's terrified because someone is trying to kill her. So she turns, reluctantly, to Marc and FI for help and protection.
