Product Description:

In this exciting mystery from New York Times bestselling author Susan Wittig Albert, China Bayles fears for her husband’s life as an escaped convict targets him...
 
Max Mantel, the killer McQuaid put away years ago, has busted out of the Huntsville prison and appears to be headed for Pecan Springs. McQuaid knows there’s only one way to stop the vengeful convict—set a trap with himself as bait.
 
China wants to stay by her husband’s side and keep him from harm. But McQuaid  insists that she get out of town and go to the Last Chance Olive Ranch, where she’s agreed to teach a workshop on herbs.
 
When China and her best friend arrive at the ranch, she learns the owner, Maddie Haskell, has her own troubles. She inherited the ranch and olive oil business from the late matriarch, Eliza Butler, but Eliza’s nephew is contesting the will.
 
While China throws herself into helping Maddie, McQuaid’s plan backfires when Mantel executes a countermove he never saw coming. Now McQuaid’s life is not the only one at stake—and this time may really be his last chance...



When the phone rings at 5:00 a.m., it's usually to bring bad news. Such is the case for Mike McQuaid—an ex-cop turned private investigator, hears from a colleague that Max Mantel, a criminal he helped convict more than a decade ago escaped from Huntsville Prison, where he was on death row. Max vowed on the day he was sentenced he would get out and kill anyone who had a part in incarcerating him. It seems he's made good on his promise for McQuaid learns the prosecutor who tried his case has been found murdered.

Concerned for his wife, China's safety and that of their daughter Caitie, McQuaid wants them out of town. China does not want to go, though he is adamant she stick to her plan of teaching a workshop and spending the weekend with her business partner, Ruby at The Last Chance Olive Ranch, some distance away.

Against her better judgment, China goes, and McQuaid takes Caitie to his parents' home. With Blackie, his associate, they prepare to locate Mantel and take him down, learning as time passes that more are killed.

Meanwhile, China, enchanted by the farm, finds her old legal skills are put to work when Maggie, who inherited the property is involved in a battle over who actually is the rightful owner. Something fishy is going on, and China determines to get to the bottom of things. Little does she know; she puts herself in danger experiencing her own excitement.

The characters are as colorful and charming as the plot, and Ms. Wittig Albert supplies snippets of information about harvesting olives along with adding some delicious-sounding recipes.
