"Every day she thanked God that He was in the business of making something out of nothing. After all, that was what they'd left her with." Eventually, Lyric had built a new life for herself. Owning and managing eight vacation cabins near Benson, Washington afforded Lyric a sense of freedom from her past, in spite of battling the occasional bouts of loneliness and boredom. Unfortunately, in spite of all of her hard work, trouble had found her, and she was being pressured to sell out. Additionally, being in the same space as Isaac Amrakov was something she had never imagined would happen; apparently he was trying to live a "do over" as well.
Seeing a living, breathing version of Lyric again sends a powerful jolt through Isaac's psyche. Sure, he'd had ways of knowing where she was and what she had been doing over the years (it's what intelligence agents did), he'd even intervened on her behalf (anonymously, of course), saving her life when no one else cared. But she'd never known, and Isaac wasn't sure that he wanted her to. Now thrown back together into the same community with new goals in life, the two highly trained former operatives have to figure out how to resume civilian life, co-existing without dredging up old wounds . . . or can something much deeper be at play . . . like God's will for their futures . . . even though they are playing a dangerous game . . . on behalf of justice.

A new start.
An all too familiar threat.
Burned by the CIA, Lyric Thompson signed on with the Accountant’s Office for the fresh start she needed. Running a resort of vacation cabins—the site of more than one murder—isn’t going exactly to plan, but she wasn’t trained to quit. When a developer puts the pressure on, she has to choose to fight back alone…or accept help from the one man she never let go of.
Isaac Amrakov has never been given the chance to plot his own course. When the Accountant’s Office offers him a new life in Benson, he doesn’t know just how much God plans to restore in his life. But the construction crew he’s signed on with are up to something. The man he wants to be would wade in, but Isaac can’t do the right thing and keep Lyric safe at the same time. Not without putting everything he wants in jeopardy.
These two trained operatives are in for the fight of their lives. But will they stand together, or let life tear them apart again?
This stand-alone story is part of the accountant’s office series, Last Chance Downrange.
An all-new setting. An all-new set of characters.
