Summary:

Barbara Holloway is a low-key attorney in Eugene, Oregon, who left her father's high-powered firm to handle small legal problems for local residents and ponder her next move. But while trying to sort out her own future, two people, desperate for help, show up on her doorstep: former pro football player Martin Owens and his wife, Binnie. Binnie, who is mute, met her husband when she sneaked aboard his boat while it was docked in Haiti and smuggled herself into the US. Now Immigration is seeking to deport her back to Haiti, which would be a death sentence. Born to a woman from Belize who was kidnapped and enslaved by pirates, Binnie's only hope is to prove her and her mother's real identity. With only days to find the truth and protect Binnie, Holloway sets off for Belize. But what she knows is only the tip of the iceberg in what turns out to be one of her most complex, compelling, and dangerous cases yet.

'Barbara is a compelling character'intelligent and capable yet vulnerable enough for readers to worry about the danger she encounters.''Booklist

    This book tells about Vinnie and how Barbara helped her with ICE and hit men out to kill both Vinnie and Barbara. Vinnie and her husband are regular in later books so it is good at last to discover their story. This book takes place in Eugene and in Belize. Lots of interesting information about Belize and about orchids. Carrington MacDuffie did a good job with the narration. No court room drama in this story. You will enjoy this book.
