Smart, attractive, and fiercely independent, Major Holly Barker, the army-brat daughter of a master sergeant, has been forced into early retirement at 37 due to a scandalous sexual harassment case involving a colonel with a vendetta. With the help of her dad, she makes the move to civilian life, becoming deputy chief of police in Orchid Beach, Florida. But below the calm, sunny surface of this sleepy, well-to-do town lies a web of evil and deceit that escalates when a colleague and another associate are brutally gunned down. Holly's seemingly low-key new career soon thrusts her into a dangerous game of cat and mouse.
