What happens when the reporter becomes the story? Alex finds more than she bargained for. In one terrible instant, she is witness to a conspiracy that will stun a nation. The official story is just a cover-up for a truth so frightening, so unthinkable, anyone who threatens to reveal it must be silenced. Forever. And now that someone is Alex Graham.
The first attempt on her life is swift and brutal. Only barely escaping, she finds an ally in an improbable source. Billionaire financier John Logan has his own reasons for protecting Alex, and these reasons alone are likely to get her killed. Using his vast connections and influences, Logan assigns a bodyguard to protect her. Judd Morgan is the best covert commando in the business, and if anyone can keep Alex safe, it's this quietly dangerous man. The problem is, Alex doesn't want to be kept safe by Judd, whose checkered past has made him the target of an unseen assassin who dogs his every step.

"A smoothly written, tightly plotted, turbocharged thriller - Johansen doesn't miss." (Kirkus Reviews)
"The nonstop action and slick plot won't disappoint." (Publishers Weekly)
I thought that this book was great. I'm a fan of Iris Johansen and she did not let me down with this book. She is an excellent writer. She writes believable characters and chilling and thrilling situations and plots. I'll always be waiting for the next book that she writes. The narrator is also excellent. I was glad to see some familar characters in this novel.
This book might have been a better read than listen. Kate Burton makes listening so incredibly boring. She reads way too fast and puts no heart or feeling into any of her words. Very disappointing as Iris Johansen is very good.
This was a fun listen ... lots of action with a great love story. Alex is a character of substance and Jud is the stuff fanasies are made of. A quick book if you are not looking for anything deep. My only regret is that I didn't get the unabridged version.
