Desperate for money, and against his wife’s warnings, former Marine Charlie Woods accepts an unusual five-night limo driving assignment. His wealthy passenger, eighty-year-old Vivien Granville, refuses to fly, but her son’s suicide requires she travel from Georgia to the Florida Keys for the funeral. Charlie isn’t the only one with a looming crisis. Vivien fears her surviving children have planned more than a burial in Key West. Capitalizing on Charlie’s simple decency, the crafty woman maneuvers him and his ambitious wife, Desiree, into a devil’s bargain.
Their arrangement solves everyone’s short-term problem, but as plots hatch back in Georgia, everyone discovers that even minor deceptions can spiral into unimaginable consequences.
