Retired hit man Peter Macklin is enjoying his honeymoon with his beautiful new wife Laurie when his past catches up to him, and he is forced to leave to take care of old business that will not wait.

McMillan Palgrave
Peter Macklin, contract killer--retired--has found himself the perfect woman. He's convinced young, beautiful, innocent Laurie that he is simply a salesman from Detroit, and they're passionately honeymooning in Los Angeles. . . . until the phone call. Peter tells Laurie he has to go to Sacramento to take care of business, and he'll be back in a day. After a day passes, though, a man called Abilene shows up with a note from Peter saying Abilene will take care of her until his return.

Macklin's retirement seems to have been premature, and Laurie's innocence is about to end . . .


Blackwell North Amer
Peter Macklin is a killer - or was. He got out. He quit the mob, left Detroit, and finally met Laurie, a gorgeous, smart, passionate woman who makes him feel that perhaps life holds more for him than the deadly game of his former profession.
Los Angeles. Honeymoon. Only the memories hurt, and she's so good she knows not to ask him about what he won't discuss.
Then comes the phone call. He's got to travel to Sacramento to take care of a business matter that he thought was already settled. It'll just be a day, he tells her, and then they'll continue their honeymoon.
A day passes, and instead of Peter, a man called Abilene shows up, sent, says Peter's note, to take care of her while he's gone. But when Laurie tires of Abilene's hick, country ways and attemps to break away from him, one hard moment tells her that he's no friend - and that she's having the Honeymoon from Hell.
Peter loves her, doesn't he? If he does, would he leave her with his "friend"? Peter has his own problems, taking care of business, nasty business, in San Antonio, and it isn't pretty.
What has he gotten her into? Will it ever end? Or will he always be a killer? Laurie just wishes she could know...but right now, she's not sure she wants to know.
And Macklin? He's not sure of anything, anymore.
