Publisher's Summary

It's a business trip that takes attorney Maddie Fitzgerald down to New Orleans, but it's hardly business as usual when a man breaks into her hotel room and tries to kill her. Barely escaping with her life, the sexy, stylish 32-year-old brunette calls the police and finds herself face-to-face with FBI agent Sam McCabe. Unnerved by his questions - and his good looks - Maddie is told she's been targeted by a hired killer, one who has eluded McCabe for years. Apparently, she's been mistaken for another woman, an FBI informant of the same name who was also staying at the hotel that night. McCabe grills her, and then disappears. Shaken, she finishes her business and returns home to St. Louis.

But days later, Maddie is attacked a second time, and again McCabe returns to question her. He convinces her that the only way she'll ever be safe again is if the killer is caught, and the quickest way to nab him is to use her as bait. Maddie reluctantly agrees, and sparks fly and then ignite as McCabe shadows her. But their unexpected romance throws McCabe off his stride - and puts Maddie in the hands of a killer.

    "Exciting Read!"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this read. McCabe was the perfect hero. This book kept me guessing and didn't end until it ended. I think I will miss the characters.

    "Needed a competent editor"

    I liked the book. Really, I did. I like the narrator. The story flows so smoothly, UNTIL... the narrator spells out U N S U B instead of saying a word that even school children know. I would get so engrossed in the compelling story and the way the narrator so competently read it and hearing that word spelled out would be like running into a brick wall. It completely halted the easy flow of the story and it would take a while for me to get back into it. Only to have it happen again, and again, and again.

    "Good"

    Good book with a compelling story that holds your interest. Until the narrator spells out U N S U B instead of saying the word. Come on! The narrator is excellent in every area except this. A decent editor should have caught this well before it was released.

    "Didn't shut it off, but..."

    ... I won't ever revisit this book/listen. The storyline is fine, but awfully 'wordy' for audio. Quite a lot of non-atmospheric filler lines - taking 50 words to express what needs only 10. That plus the reader reading 'unsub' as an acronym (U-N-S-U-B) instead of the abbreviation for 'unidentified subject' (read as one word - unsub) is quite distracting. Hearing multiple FBI agents referring to the U-N-S-U-B is funny, but surely a mistake that an editor should have caught.
    All that said, I didn't turn it off. I did want to know which of the two possible killers was after the main character.

    "A fast paced mystery"

    This is a new author for me, so I was uncertain what I would find. What I found was a fast paced mystery with tight suspense and a surprise finale. I would have preferred a different narrator due to the difficulty she had with deep male voices. Overall, I am pleasantly surprised.
