Although Megan has not yet celebrated her thirtieth birthday, she has already lived a life full of harrowing moments and tragic deaths. She is no stranger to defending her own life, and has found herself killing others in self-defense.

At the same time, she is grieving the effects of a major stroke on her great friend, James, a man who was like a father to her.
