FBI Agent Paul Fletcher spent years working on the Dakota Strangler case, only to have it end with the serial killer's presumed death. But when a threatening note surfaces, targeting past victim Elise Johnson and her new life, he's back on the case…. With all evidence leading to Elise's small Texas town, the only option to protect Elise and her boys is for the charming yet tough agent to move in. As he becomes a part of their lives, he discovers that he would sacrifice everything to keep this family safe. But tearing down the protective walls that Elise has built for herself may be just as hard as catching a killer–a killer who threatens to destroy the very home he's just found.
