Back for her college reunion, Deputy Marshal Marice Houston doesn’t expect to hook up with an old boyfriend. Nor, does she expect to be a witness to a deadly assault, which was motivated by a decade old rape case. Orson Roberts is dead, killed by the owner of the motel where she’s staying. Was it really self-defense or was it murder? Can Marice discover the truth of what happened that night in Room 103?
Having just moved in with her fiance, Kris, Marice isn’t too happy to be given an out of town job. She has been sent to Daytona Beach, Florida. There’s been a huge sting operation, and the local FBI is under scrutiny. The Marshals have been called in to oversee prisoner transfers.
Things get sticky when Marice and her team are ordered to transport the ringleader, China Finetti, from Daytona Beach to a federal prison in Kansas City. Someone sets a car bomb, injuring Marice and Butch—and that’s only the tip of the iceberg. Everything seems to point to China Finetti pulling the strings from prison—if so, how do they prove it?
Marice is back. Like always, trouble seems to follow her around, especially when she gets around her friend, Todd. He’s trying to move on, after the incident with Orson Roberts a year or so ago, but finding it hard. Fortunately, he’s found a lady friend to help him, Emily. Unfortunately, she’s got secrets, which catch up with her. When on their first date, Emily is shot, and Todd’s up to his ears in freaky intrigue once more. With the help of Marice and friends, he’s doing his best to muddle through and find out what went wrong in Room 303.
