|Plot Summary of Dangerous Curves|
Berkley, Jun 2004
FBI Agent Calder Preston asks his ex girlfriend and former agent Raine Robey for unofficial help. Though she would like to say no because he let her down when she was in official trouble, Raine knows her fledgling business Partners in Crime needs the customer. Raine agrees to look into the trouble that Hope Ensher faces or least her disabled father believes she confronts in their Jackson Motors business. Calder has an ulterior motive of wanting the woman he loves back in his life as he tries to overcome failing her when she needed him most.
Meanwhile a carjacker steals a vehicle in which model teen Megan Mulroney sleeps in the back seat. While the police conduct a manhunt for her, someone sets up Raine as pedophile killer. These two cases and that of Hope will converge in a dangerous jungle scenario.
