ABOUT THE BOOK - NO PLACE TO HIDE
Against hope, Smythe Windwalker Daniels’ anonymity is compromised and a threat has been made against her life. The danger impacts not only her life but the lives of those around her. She reluctantly accepts the FBI’s protection, hoping to testify and bring a promise of justice to a community.
Smythe is a woman with vision and fire in her soul. From a young age, Smythe was discriminated against as a mixed race girl in a predominantly white neighborhood. She leaves her career to escape the corporate rat race, only to get entangled in a pesticide poisoning cover-up attempt by a mega corporation. While on the run, she seeks to find meaning in events that now threaten her life. Through a series of misadventures she discovers how all events are woven together in this tapestry called “life.”
As she uses her past experience to find meaning in the present, she begins to see beauty in the midst of chaos. But the harder she tries to hide, the more difficult it is to survive.
