When a woman witnesses a fatal car accident outside the Jersey Shore
motel she manages, she's suddenly thrust into a nightmare of gang
violence, guns, and money that she can't outrun.
Joette Harper's life brings new meaning to the phrase "paycheck to
paycheck." Struggling to afford her mother's sky-high medical bills
and also keep the lights on in her trailer home, Joette needs a break.
So, when she spies a briefcase full of money amongst the wreckage of a
fiery car accident, she knows she can't just let it be. Inside is a
bounty better than she could have dreamed-just shy of $300,000 in
neatly stacked hundreds and fifties. Enough to pay off her debts, give
her mother the care she deserves, and maybe even help out a few of her
But, of course, the missing briefcase didn't go unnoticed by its

to get back what's his.
Joette is way out of her depth, but can't seem to stop herself from
participating in this cat-and-mouse chase. But can she beat Travis at
his own game?
