For months, a striking young woman has traveled alone through the western United States, working at diners, cleaning hotel rooms, doing whatever odd jobs she can find. None have lasted more than a few days. As soon as her employers learn she has no social security number, no identification, and no past except a name she gave herself after waking in a hospital in New Mexico--Coleen Whitman--they send her on her way.
Another person is traveling as well--a picture in one hand, a generic FBI badge in the other, a gun under his coat. His journeys are leading him along a trail, where each stop yields a little more information.
Coleen is hunting for the past that has been erased from her memory; and the man is hunting for Coleen because her memory is the one thing-the only thing-that can put him behind bars. When Coleen meets Luke Osborn, she finds a man who might be able to help her discover who she is, a man who can introduce her to a new way of life. But the tracker is closing in. [publisher blurb]
