Two bizarre characters, both fleeing the FBI, are thrown together in the New Mexico forest. The woman, who’s kidnapped a baby, needs a hideout and craves a sexual encounter. The man, a fugitive bomber, with the sexual experience of a cub scout, wants only to be rid of her. Result: an enthralling escapade:
Wendell Hawthorne’s having a fine day, testing one of his bombs, when Melody Reeves crashes into his life. More accurately, she runs her car into the woods near his cabin. The car contains the baby she’s kidnapped from a Santa Fe hospital, and she becomes frantic as the car radio blares an Amber Alert with her name and description!
Melody believes the infant was meant to be hers, but she’s sufficiently grounded to know that the #FBI won’t see it her way. She needs a hideout, like Wendell’s cozy cabin, but those explosions she hears out in the woods are scary.
A normal person would turn this crazy woman in, but Wendell is more Ted Kaczynski than Ted Turner. He could blow Siena to kingdom come, but Wendell’s a rare bird—a pacifist bomber. He wrestles with this dilemma, as he prepares another explosive ‘mission.’ Meanwhile, Melody works her feminine wiles on him and inadvertently drops clues that could very well undo them both.
