    Four years ago, after Cory Brandel’s passionate affair with Sheikh Damon El Karim ended, she gave birth to his son - and kept it secret from him. When Damon finds out the truth, he kidnaps the boy and takes him across the world to his desert kingdom, knowing that Cory will follow. Damon vows to punish Cory for depriving him of his son and heir, but does he really mean to imprison her in his palace until she surrenders to him? It is savage, unthinkable - but because she is fighting for her son, Cory has no choice.

    Story

    The book was flat and it appeared to be a contract filling book. If Iris was trying to go Fifty Shades she needs not to. The book was flat and not real drama. It ended as it started weak.
    I have come to expect a certain level from Johansen as I have read all her books even the ones with her son. I hope this was just a blip.

    In the summer of 1985, when she was fifteen, Eliza was kidnapped by Walter and held hostage for almost six weeks. He had killed at least one girl and Eliza always suspected he had other victims as well. Now on death row in Virginia for the rape and murder of his final victim, Walter seems to be making a heartfelt act of contrition as his execution nears. Though Eliza wants nothing to do with him, she's never forgotten that Walter was most unpredictable when ignored.

    Overall

    This was a very disappointing book and like another reviewer I feel I wasted a credit. I kept waiting for the book to build to a climax and nothing! The story and the main character was weak and I wanted to smack the main character. I actually thought at one point that the big reveal was that she killed Holly! That would have been interesting. Laura Lippman's other books were good and that is why I downloaded this book. I hope her next effort is more engaging.
