Finally attending college to pursue her dream career as a police officer, twenty-two year old Shelby is at the top of her class and part of a pilot project that trains police officers in special driving skills for high-speed chases and intercepting illegal street racing. Raised by a family of gear-heads, Shelby's living her dream-- or will be once she graduates.
But her dreams suddenly come to a screeching halt when she gets a call from her oldest brother Travis. It seems their brother, Jamie, is missing. Knowing Travis and his history of being on the wrong side of the law, he likely had something to do with it. Shelby leaves the driving school and heads home to find a tangled mess of kidnapping, illegal racing, and drug deals-- everything that could ruin her career. But her favourite brother's life is on the line, and she'll do anything to get him back, including crossing lines she thought were never to be crossed.
Excitement raced through my veins at the sight of the red and blue flashing lights in my rear view mirror. There was a cop on my tail and I had to out run him. Abandoned houses along both sides of the road flew by as I hit the gas pedal in my 2000 Chevy Impala, but I took no notice of the neighbourhood. My only objective was to outrun the police car.
Bright orange light from the setting sun shone between the buildings, revealing a wide intersection up ahead. The timing had to be right. Closer. Closer. At the last second, I hit the brakes and cranked the wheel counter-clockwise only to be immediately blinded by the sunset. The Impala slid around the corner, tires squealing like a banshee. I nearly collided with a car parked at the curb. I cranked the wheel hard to the right, trying not to over-correct. The car fish-tailed, the back end swinging to the left. I hit the gas, narrowly avoiding another vehicle on the opposite side of the street.
Damn it. Those parked cars had not been on this street yesterday.
Someone was testing me.
I put my foot down on the gas again, racing away from the intersection. The end was just ahead. Behind me, the cop car tried the same fish-tail manoeuvre, but wasn't as successful. His back quarter panel collided with the first parked car. Chunks of metal fell to the ground.
