The first bullet didn’t kill her. But the next one might. With a target on her back, Battle Mountain reserve officer Isla Vachs has no choice but to trust Adan Sergeant.

An all-too-familiar crack of a bullet pierced through the night.
A split second before pain and a solid wall of muscle tackled her to the asphalt.
