And fighting a faceless enemy....
Joining forces to save the 17-year-old girl, Payton and Jessica discover that she's nothing but a pawn in an insidious, terrifying global conspiracy. They're battling a new kind of criminal - and soon their race for answers will become a dangerous struggle for survival.

"Jordan Dane has got the goods and she delivers. A great new author to watch." (Crimespree magazine)
I am not one to write a long synopsis of each book I listen to. If I want to know WHAT a book is about I will go read the synopsis under the book title. I would really rather know a readers opinion of the story not what the story was about with all the spoilers. That being said I thought this book was above average, the story line was gripping and surprising towards the end. I have always liked Xe Sands as a narrator. Now, I have yet to read the others in what I believe is a series called Sweet Justice with this being the first story, but I truly hope the author ties up the many, many loose ends she left dangleing. Even though I never lost interest in the story, by the time I was at the books end I still felt like there should be many chapters to go to really round out this gripping story, kind of felt like it took a long heart pounding time to get to where I thought ok but what about........? The only thing I will say to all who read this reveiw is PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE !! All you parents out there with children and teens on the web, KNOW who they are talking to on the internet. This book will bring home some very scary stuff that is not just the imagineings of a good author.
