When Peter Ash rescues a stranded woman, he finds she's in far deeper trouble than he bargained for.
Eight years a soldier, Peter Ash came home from Iraq and Afghanistan with only one souvenir: a crippling claustrophobia due to PTSD. After years of living rough, he's trying hard to get back to a normal life - one where people aren't trying to kill him.
And then he meets Helene, a young pregnant woman stranded on a remote Nebraska road. With her car broken down, Peter is her only chance of rescue, and of course he offers her a ride.
But her angry ex-cop husband is hot on their trail. It seems Helene has seen something she was never meant to see, and protecting her will put both her and Peter's lives on the line...
