"Escape!" — the story of two previously unattached people who become attached to each other in a hectic race for their lives: ELISSA BENNETT POPE (Lake Forest, Illinois): She has thrown away a fortune because she couldn’t stand being married to it. After escaping one scary relationship, this woman of “heart-stopping beauty” is dangerously attracted to a West Coast architect accused of murder. Forced to join him on a desperate journey across the far western United States, Elissa must endure an expedition that would either change her life or end it. F. GRAHAM HARPER (Carmel, California): Halting a $60 million housing project on a former Chicago-area army base, this architect convinces Elissa he has unearthed a hot secret from the Cold War. To escape from deadly conspirators, they must race to the clifftop house where Harper lives in mysterious solitude above the boiling Pacific surf. It's 2200 miles with many twists and turns — both on the road and in their heady relationship.
