    The future changes in the blink of an eye... or does it? Miriam is a Saudi princess promised to another, a pawn in a political struggle that could shift the balance of power in the Middle East. Seth is a certified genius with a head full of numbers, a life full of baggage, and an attitude born on the waves of the Pacific. Cultures collide when they find themselves thrown together as fugitives in a high-stakes chase across Southern California.

    I enjoyed the ride of this fast paced thriller. The plot was not predictable... nice twists and turns. Good ending.

    Two abandoned souls are on the hunt for one powerful man. Soon, their paths will cross and lead to one twisted fate. Danny Hansen is a Bosnian immigrant who came to America with hopes of escaping haunted memories of a tragic war that took his mother's life. Now he's a priest who lives by a law of love and compassion. It is powerful men and hypocrites who abide by legal law but eschew the law of love that most incense Danny. As an avenging angel, he believes it is his duty to show them the error of their ways, at any cost. Renee Gilmore is the frail and helpless victim of one such powerful man....

    Overall

    Though initially interesting, I found the plot a bit corny and the voice of the female narrator, flat and annoying. The ending is hokey and unrealistic. Also, I've noticed in this book as well as others by this author, that he seems to be obsessed with his protagonist having blond hair and/or blue eyes... not to mention perpetuating the myth that beautiful women must be thin, petite waifs. Give me a break!
