Anita Cooper was three times a victim. Her father's death crushed
her dreams of college and a better life. Then her purity was drowned
in powerless anxiety and her gentle fantasies displaced by unspeakable
humiliation, all because of a hard man who knew the way of the world.
Rod Mantooth stole both her innocence and her father's legacy, a
secret that could have rebuilt her life.
Anita was lost until she encountered another hard man who knew the
way of the world - the urban paladin and professional troubleshooter
named Hannibal Jones. Like a rolling mass of icy fury, Hannibal
followed the trail of corrupted human debris that would lead to
Rod Mantooth and a final showdown in the icy waters of the Atlantic.
