They rated Buffy VanderRye as one of the best Army officers in the past fifty years. She had risen to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel by the age of 37. Buffy was physically strong, had a brilliant tactical mind, and was a natural leader. She also had a lover on the side. The ultimate example of an empowered woman. But then a sniper’s bullet severed her spine and put her in a wheelchair. They moved her to reserve status and her world fell apart. The attempt to rob several banks at the same time would put her team in great danger. The robbery would not go as planned, with unspeakable consequences and a series of betrayals.
