Harper George is having a bad day. A hostage has died, the Metropolitan Police Service has given her the boot, and she has to handle a heist negotiation drunk. It doesn't end well.
It's about to get worse.
A criminal organisation wants Harper to work for them. When she refuses, people start dying. The seemingly random deaths turn out to have a common denominator: Harper, and a negotiation she has failed. Someone wants revenge, but who and why?
Harper is determined to solve the mystery before more people die - and before she has to give in to the criminals' demands. But then it's too late. Harper has to face the toughest negotiation of her career: that for her own life.
