REFUGE
 

Miranda Flores didn’t kill anybody.

 

But there are four dead bodies in the New Mexican desert and rookie FBI agent Jodie Layne knows Miranda was there. Jodie seeks only the truth. Her partner Scott Tanner wants vengeance.

 

Miranda’s only desire is a life free of violence. The bloody civil war in El Salvador that wiped out her family set her on a dangerous trek north to the country she was raised in, the United States. After crossing the border, though, she discovers a changed land.

 

A narrow escape from a deadly nightclub raid convinces Miranda there is no future for her in the U.S. With Layne and Tanner hot on her trail, she flees north toward Canada. How will she navigate a landscape in which every person she meets is a potential enemy? Who can she trust when everyone is out to get her? Where can she go when no place is safe?

 

Written in the vein of best-selling authors Gillian Flynn and Karin Slaughter, Refuge is a wild, fast-paced action thriller that will leave its readers breathless.
