If there's anything Neal Carey should know by now, it's this: Never open the door if a one-armed man might be standing on the other side. Because that man is bound to be his very own Dad, Joe Graham, who will only sniff at his housekeeping and make him an offer he'd better not refuse. But maybe falling in love has softened Neal's instincts, because before he knows it, Graham is in his kitchen, and Neal is embarking upon a job with a new twist. This time he doesn't have to find someone, he has to keep someone from being found - and clean up her act in the process From Austin to Las Vegas to San Antonio, Neal and his charge are on the lam and engaged in a constant battle of wits to keep from killing each other, before someone else does the job for them.
