Glancing over my shoulder, I looked down the sheer fifty-foot drop into the deep, churning waters below. As my heart pounded, I tried to remain calm. One misstep now and a torturous death by drowning would end my life. Trapped between him and the water I struggled for a way to break free, but the menacing arch of his brow and fierce stance made it clear—do not cross him.
My heart filled with regret. Why hadn’t I seen through this facade? Was I rescued from an early grave only to die here at the edge of this dam?

Staring into those dark foreboding eyes that reflected his murderous gaze a shiver raced up my spine. “You won’t bury your sins this time,” I said despite my fear.
He merely sauntered forward and smirked. “I already have. Remember—everyone keeps secrets.”
