Publisher's Summary

When Alison Gregorio lands a cushy administrative job in a law office, she knows her big paycheck comes with strings attached. She expects long hours and unreasonable demands. She doesn't expect to be dodging assassins before she gets her first raise, but that's exactly what she ends up doing.

A plane carrying the boss's biggest client disappears into limbo, and Alison's work on the estate reveals explosive secrets beneath the law firm's golden façade. Before long Alison is on the run with lethal secrets locked in memory and no idea where to turn for help.

Staying alive is only the first challenge inventor Justin Wyatt faces after sabotage leaves him stranded in a frozen wasteland. Survival isn't enough. He needs to find out who betrayed him before his deadliest creations fall into the wrong hands. His biggest obstacle: the person holding the key to the mystery doesn't know he is still alive...and he doesn't know she exists.

Justin enlists the help of strangers with their own hidden agendas to hunt down his enemies, and once fate brings Alison to their doorstep, there's no turning back. Either they will untangle the mess of corporate intrigue and personal vendettas that brought them all together, or their common foe will destroy them all.

Forty-two years have passed since the Restored United States emerged from decades of chaos and revolution. The future is a brave new world, but some things never change. Money still talks, power still corrupts, and trust is a rare and precious commodity.

    Living, breathing characters. Writing that is far above par for almost anyone I've ever read, exciting storyline, and exactly the kind of world I love to read about. Herkes dares to blend things that most people are too scared to do which is exactly why her readers love her. I'm waiting patiently for this author to be noticed for the genius that she is so I can say I was a fan before it happened.

    The narration is also on point and really brought the story to life.

    Story
    "Entertaining dystopian story"

    Set in the near future, this thriller contains a number of memorable characters (and one annoying shite), delivered to the readers in a masterful fashion. Highly recommended
