Hired by a prestigious D.C. law firm after barely surviving witnessing the murder of the First Lady, attorney Jessica Ford is deliberately keeping a low profile as she gets a sensational rape case involving a senator’s son, whom she is defending, is abruptly dismissed because the victim recants on the stand. The problem is, Jess suspects that the victim recanted because she was threatened. Meanwhile, she has an uneasy feeling about the beautiful young associate she replaced: where is Allison Howard? No one has seen her since she left the firm.
Taking over Allison’s position, Jess becomes more and more haunted by her predecessor. Then she discovers that the victim in the rape case has also disappeared. With the help of her former lover, hunky Secret Service Agent Mark Ryan, Jess starts searching for both women. Soon she uncovers the case of a missing teenage girl who knew Allison. Is there a link? When someone tries to kill her, Jess knows she is getting too close to something — but what? She and Mark race to come up with answers before time runs out...

"Robards is one terrific storyteller.” (Chicago Tribune)
I enjoyed the story and the premise was believable. It was easy to get wrapped up in the story and get excited to find out what was going to happen next. My only complaint regarding the story is that the author uses her usual "two beautiful people are in love, but won't admit it" routine again. I wasn't overly fond of the narrator. Her reading tone boarders on monotone, although it grew on my as the book went on and it wasn't distracting.
Almost did-listened to in a couple days
The heroine in this book got on my nerves so much I couldn't even finish it! All of her "I love you/I hate you" banter though out the whole book was irritating to say the least. she was also a little TSTL.. He repeatedly saved her life and tried to protect her but she was just so stubborn it was ridiculous! I really was scratching my head as to why the hero would even want her! I know he kissed another woman and I understand why she was upset in the beginning but COME ON! GET OVER IT or just don't date him!
This was far more a romance than a mystery or thriller. I thought if she commented one more time on how Mark's muscles rippled or how handsome he was I would have to give up listening to it.
