Gina Lindsey, a transplant from New York City and now a DEA agent residing in Spokane, Washington, discovers a clue from a drug bust that leads her to SE Montana, Carter County, where her aunt and uncle ranch. She investigates the mysterious disappearance of her uncle and the location and activities of a large drug cartel that is operating in the area. Faced with death at every turn, puzzled by the tactiturn response she receives from her relatives, and totally out of her comfort zone, Gina comes to the end of herself and almost her life in this fast-paced book as she seeks the key to her deadlocked heart.
Chance McNeil is a young man on a mission — to find justice for the death of his brother, Stan, at the hand of the drug cartel while in Columbia, South America. The trail leads him to Ekalaka, MT where he goes undercover. Driven and deeply spiritual, Chance finds himself at a loss when he is attacked by a gang of thugs. When he gets involved with a redheaded cop from Spokane, he encounters a young woman who is as determined and stubborn as himself. What part does Gina Lindsey play in this drama? How can he stand against the power and money which the drug cartels possess? Where is God when injustice occurs? Where does a person turn when everything is taken from them?
Both Gina and Chance must look deep within to find the answers to their deadlocked problems, but time is against them and in the end they only have one thing going for them: faith.
But will that be enough? Will Gina make the right choices in time to save fifteen lives? Will Chance find the answer he seeks before he is killed?
Deadlocked not only entertains, but also answers some of the deep questions of the human heart. What Gina and Chance learn from this experience will stay with you for a long time. This is not a story you want to miss.
