The shock ending to Erica Jewell's marriage has left a huge hole in her bank balance and a bigger one in her heart. So now this office worker's goals make a very short list: no surprises, no debt and, definitely, no men. That is, until she finds one bleeding to death in her Melbourne garden one stormy night.
Jack Jones is a man whose emotional wounds are more life-threatening than the bullet in his shoulder. When he recruits Erica to his secret team of vigilantes, Erica suspects her safe, predictable world is about to be inverted.
And she's absolutely right.
