Maddie Fitzgerald in on a business trip in New Orleans when a man breaks into her hotel room and tries to kill her.
Barely escaping with her life, she soon finds herself face-to-face with FBI agent Sam McCabe. Unnerved by his questions – and his good looks – Maddie is told she’s been targeted by an elusive killer whom McCabe has been tracking for weeks. When they agree that her attack must be a case of mistaken identity, a shaken Maddie is given the all-clear to go home.
McCabe is ruffled, not just by the connection he felt to Maddie, but by an inescapable feeling that’s she’s got something to hide. When she is attacked for the second time, McCabe insists that the only way to catch the killer is to use her as bait.
