U.S. Marshal Michael Venturi of the Witness Protection Program relocates a mobster, now a government witness, to a small rural town after creating a new identity for him. The man proves to be a monster unleashed on an unsuspecting community. The results are tragic. To make amends Venturi leaves the Marshals Service and assembles a team of close confidants to secretly create new identities for innocent men and women whose lives have been ruined through no fault of their own - people who deserve fresh starts in new lives. But before they are relocated and reborn, each must change a lifetime of habits and actually become someone else, with new traits, tastes, and personalities. And before being declared "legally dead" - they have to die. In these "deaths," some of them spectacular, phony forensics must be created to fit the "facts" and fool the experts.

Venturi's fascinating experiment works - for a time. But as he continues to relocate the deserving, evil begins to stalk Venturi and his legally dead clients. Soon one is dead. Really dead. Are the relentless killers from his own past, or was one of his clients not so innocent after all? His own loved ones are now targets because of his attempts to atone for a tragedy that haunts him. In a desperate race to protect those he has relocated, Venturi must call upon his former training in both the U.S. Marines Force Recon and the Marshals Service, as he is hunted by police, prosecutors, ruthless killers, and his own former federal colleagues.

    " This is a first in many ways for me. First time I have read a book by this author. Second it was a book I found in a discount store stuffed in a basket. It was easy to read and flowed well. The two main characters were energizing. This is the first that made my mouth drop with the ending. The only word to describe the ending is BAMM! "

    " Witness protection agency puts a child molester that it wants to testify in a trial against a mobster in a small town where 2 young girls end up missing. Michael Venturi takes care of the problem which sends his life in a different direction. A great read that kept me guessing until the very end. "
