Summary
"Holly is on her way - with her steady beau, Jackson Oxenhandler - to a once-in-a-lifetime celebration, when the festivities are shattered by a brutal crime that takes place too close to home. A highly disciplined team of men hits a local Orchid Beach, Florida, business, and the waves from the robbery nearly capsize Holly's life. She vows to find the culprits - who have been careful enough to leave nothing behind except the corpse of an innocent bystander - and soon she discovers evidence that leads her into the midst of a clan whose members are as mysterious as they are zealous. Holly's father, Ham, a retired Army chief master sergeant, is her ticket into the strange world this group inhabits, and what Ham learns there boggles the minds of Holly and her FBI contact, Harry Crisp."

Summary
While Holly Barker, a former military police commander turned police chief of smalltown Orchid Beach, Florida, waits at the local courthouse to marry lawyer Jackson Oxenhandler, he gets himself killed in a shoot-out at Orchid Beach's bank. Holly stifles a few sobs, gets back into uniform and sets off to track down the gunmen, a gang of highly organized robbers who planned to heist $4 million in payroll cash. It soon becomes clear that they aren't ordinary robbers, but a politically motivated clan
