Who could know counting heads would be so dangerous? Laura Beth Copeland, the stay- home mother of two and half, decides to become a census-taker just for the experience. When she discovers a decapitated head at one of her canvassing addresses, she is catapulted into a fight for her life.

Upon finding only the head of a witness against a drug lord, Laura Beth becomes the hitman’s next target. She first receives warnings to remain quiet. When she cooperates with police, the assassin targets her. Investigation shows the killer has ties far up the political ladder, and the head count mounts as every witness in a federal case has already been eliminated. FBI moves in to try and catch the killer and protect Laura Beth. Their attempts prove to be in vain, and Laura Beth’s husband is killed, prompting her being taken into protective custody, which goes terribly awry. She goes on the lam with the local police detective, Tanner McGill. Weeks spent together create a spark that will smolder for a while.

By the time a possible killer is identified, it becomes apparent that the man is only a pawn and the real criminal links all the way the State Department of the United States. Multiple branches of law enforcement join to find the real culprit and save an innocent woman.

Like many of her characters, JANET TAYLOR-PERRY is a history buff and loves anything of historical significance from old cars to old cemeteries. Get to know Janet and you'll see why she's been critically acclaimed at the Faulkner Wisdom Competition and why her writing continues to receive 4 and 5-star reviews, as well as winning awards—It could be that readers see so much of her in her characters: mother, educator, author, editor, native Mississippian, graduate of the University of Southern Mississippi and Belhaven University, and a person who has overcome great obstacles and still holds on to her faith.
