from the back cover

Owen Marcus has been damaged in the most magnificent ways.
When a naked, beaten boy stumbles into his campground in the Pine Barrens, Owen doesn’t stop to think. His instincts are to comfort and protect, and he does—then the boy mentions a name, tells a story, and asks for his help. In an instant, Owen is granted a mission—save the boy’s sister, shut down a child trafficker, and somehow bar his heart from being broken yet again.
Recent events conspire to throw him back into the devastating mindset Owen occupied years ago, when he'd come home from a covert mission to find his only daughter the target of killers. The rage and grief he felt over her abduction, torture, and murder have transformed the man he was into the hunter he's become. The sense of helplessness any parent would feel was exacerbated by his guilt. “If only” haunted his every breath, until he’d found an outlet: seeking out those who prey on the most innocent of victims.
Now he works alongside one of the most talented retributionists in the business—Alace Sweets.
In the midst of evil among us, Owen knows he and Alace are counted as monsters. But it is here he hopes to be redeemed.
