While police suspect Jeff of “instant divorce” Emory, suffering from an unexplained head injury, regains consciousness and finds herself the captive of a man whose violent past is so dark that he won’t even tell her his name.

Unexpectedly, however, the two have a dangerous encounter with people who abide by a code of justice all on their own. As her husband’s deception is revealed and the FBI closes in on her captor, Emory begins to wonder if the man with no name is, in fact, her rescuer from those who wisher dead – and from heartbreak.
