Thirteen days. That’s all Bernadette “Bird” Sincavage has left to go until she’s done with her probation and can be free again. Her impending freedom is so close she can almost taste it. Trouble soon follows, though, in the form of James Rittenhouse, who she worked with a few years ago. Bird is stunned to see James make the evening news when he’s arrested for assault. But that’s nothing compared to the shock she gets when she discovers James hiding out in an abandoned church choir loft with a gun pointed at her. Will Bird jeopardize her future for someone who helped her out in the past? Or will she turn a blind eye and learn to live with the consequences?
