Elizabeth Fitch's highly controlled teenage life suddenly falls apart on the day she witnesses a brutal murder and runs to the police for protection. When that also falls apart she runs again, spending the next 12 years on the run. Now as a solitary computer security analyst living on the fringes of a small Ozark community she begins to think of settling in one place. But this change caused by her developing relationship with Brooks Gleason, town sheriff, his family and a town that wants to get to know her forces her to make some tough decisions about her past.

This story had a great mix of action and humor. Abigail (aka Liz) is a genius, who led a programmed and now reclusive life. Her interactions with various characters is often humorous, not over the top geek humor, but fraught with awkward situations. But her powers of logic and finding solutions to difficult problems are amazing. Though you need to suspend belief in believing all of this could work out, it is a fun, exciting journey. Highly recommended.
