Jason Bennett is driving his family home after his daughter's field hockey game when a pickup truck begins tailgating them on a dark stretch of road. Two men jump from the pickup and pull guns on Jason, demanding the car. A horrific flash of violence changes his life forever. That night Jason and his family receive a visit from the FBI. The carjackers were members of a dangerous drug-trafficking organization -- and now Jason and his family are in their crosshairs. The agents advise the Bennetts to enter the witness protection program, and they have not choice but to agree. Taken from all they know, trapped in an unfamiliar life, the Bennetts begin to fall apart at the seams. Then Jason learns a shocking truth -- and realizes that he has to take matters into his own hands.

The Highland Branch Library has long played an important role in downtown Highland. From its beginnings in rented storefronts to the Highland Memorial Library built in 1946 to its present location on Jewett and 4th Street, it has been an integral part of the community. The exterior of the library looks nearly as it did when it was first built in 1966. Although it is one of the oldest buildings in the library system, it's newly remodeled interior makes it one of the newest. The library still houses over 65,000 items, but now also features a large meeting room and children's program room, a small group room, and WiFi, along with many public Internet computers. These features, along with the library's bright and inviting atmosphere and convenient location, make the Highland Branch Library a destination for the community and surrounding areas.
