Annabel Lee Donovan may be a bootlegger's daughter, but she is also a lady. She hopes that her father will leave "the business' at last when they move to a house high on a hill above Henderson, Missouri. There she meets Corbin Appleby, who may be an undercover agent and after her father, but who, she is sure, is a man she can love. Now as a deadly mob war between whisky-runners rocks her quiet town, Annabel is caught in the crossfire of passion, betrayal-and murder. Though her dreams may shatter before her eyes, she must uncover the truth about her father and test whether love can heal a wounded heart.
