Book2: Out of Control - Bree knew her boss was dealing drugs. But she needed the job. Her brother only came home to steal. And her aunt was ill. "Just one last job," Bree thought.
Book3: Dead Help - Bree turned the knob of apartment 4A. The door was unlocked. They walked in. It was empty. Andre looked around. "This is where we used to live."
Bree was in big trouble. She was barely getting by. Her older brother drank too much. Her boss was a crook. And her aunt was slowly losing it. Then there was the empty apartment next door.
