The best-selling author of Body of Lies, Iris Johansen, raises the stakes and the heart rate with this relentless thriller that follows the harrowing trail of a ruthless killer - and the woman who is determined to hunt him down.
He is the most terrifying of killers: ruthless, cunning, charismatic. What Rico Chavez wants most is Elena Kyler - and he wants her dead. Trained as an assassin, Elena now finds herself on the run from one dangerous man and turning to another for help.
Sean Galen was a man without illusions. He knew it was only desperation that caused Elena to accept his help. And yet he was determined to get this woman who had never been able to trust anyone or anything in her whole life to accept him as her ally. Galen and Elena know that Chavez' power and wealth mean there is no place they can be safe and no one they can trust - not even each other.
Soon a trail of horrifying murders will follow Galen and Elena across the country to a shattering showdown. For Chavez is a master of control and he wants more than just to take Elena's life. He wants her alive long enough to see him destroy every reason she has for living. And by the time he is through, he wants her to beg him to take the only thing she'll have left to give: her life.

"With its taut plot and complex characters, this is vintage, fan-pleasing Johansen." (Booklist)
I listen to Audible books while tinkering in the garage
I don't know if this story might have been better if I had read it myself or not, but the main female character comes across as a whiney female storm trooper who tries to have more macho that her male savior all the time she whines about her situations.
I have loved books and reading since I was old enough to be able to read! My job (being a Professional Driver) now prevents me from being able to do so nearly as much as I would like, but audiobooks fill some of that void. They are a great way to pass the time, especially for someone like me who is travelling daily for 10 to 12 hours.
I love Iris Johansen! She is one of my absolute favorite authors. I have read (and listened to) most of her books (minus a few of her very newest) and this one is one of my absolute favorites! Out of all the audiobooks I have listened to I would rank this one near the top!
