Ella Dark was driving at an illegal ninety miles per hour down the D.C.
freeway, her mind rampant with fresh troubles.
There are certain defining moments in a person’s life, Ella thought as
she whacked the radio down a notch. The day you’re born, the day you
reproduce, the day you find The One.
And the day you finally end a deathly rivalry with one of the most
heinous serial killers in United States history.
Today should have been the best day of her life. It should have been a
celebration of triumph over adversity. It should have been the birth of a new
dawn with nothing but exciting prospects on the horizon.
But Ella had made another mistake only hours after her hard-fought
victory. Her boyfriend, Ben—the man who’d stuck by her side over the past
few weeks, the man who’d fought Tobias Campbell alongside her—may not
have been the person he said he was.
Ben had been a beacon of hope in her life. He was a diamond in the

D.C. from Virginia four years ago. His story had been nondescript, by the
book, a textbook case of riding the waves of normalcy and simplicity. Ella
appreciated the lack of drama and baggage, and while she knew everyone
had a couple of skeletons, Ben’s closet only seemed to contain tight jeans
and an array of baseball caps. Nary a skeleton in sight.
But through some invasive thought, or perhaps a subconscious prompt,
she’d searched Ben’s name on the FBI database. She’d meant to search for
a different term, but Ben’s name had traveled from her reflections down to
her fingertips and a moment later, she was staring at the files of all
criminals named Ben Carter who’d been indicted on a federal crime in the
Her Ben Carter, the same Ben Carter who told her the only crime to his
name was a parking ticket (because he’d gotten lost on his way back from a
country run, apparently), was present on this list.
