For years Jane contented herself with working at the local bookstore, making her lists, and tending her special garden. Then a wounded FBI agent stumbles onto her property, and her simple, idyllic existence is shattered. Forced to flee her tragic past for an unknown and meaningless future, Jane runs away from everything she's ever known: the memory of her mother, the bodies she's so reverently buried on the hill behind her house, and her special calling—meting out punishment to those who deserve it most. With the law in hot pursuit, Jane finds herself in trouble and in love for the first time in her adult life. Can a serial killer evade her own violent destiny, or will the evil that men do undo her first?
