Wendy Gould is an attractive, happy suburban mom, and an experienced ex-cop. A chance meeting with a stranger in a hotel ends when the man is murdered and she's the only witness, forcing her to run from rogue federal agents determined to keep her silent, even if it means killing her. Things only get worse when the authorities - the wrong ones - find their way to her door, giving her no recourse but to flee from her only safe haven.
Lauritzia Velez, meanwhile, is a devoted nanny. She's also a woman with a deadly secret that has driven her into hiding until she can prove her innocence.
Scared and alone, these two women with nothing in common will eventually join forces and embark on a dangerous odyssey to find the truth and save their lives. It's a desperate hunt that leads them into a nefarious web of treachery, lies, and corruption involving drug lords, arms dealers, and shadowy figures in the highest echelons of government.
A breathtaking tale featuring two strong, sympathetic women who must rely on each other to take down powerful, lethal forces, No Way Back is a riveting tale full of twists and thrilling surprises from the best-selling author who is "coming up on the rails behind Harlan Coben and Lee Child" (Evening Standard, U.K.).

Why ever would I do that?
I am a huge fan of Andrew Gross, writing with James Patterson and independently. Bought most books on iTunes, so they won't appear in my Library. The narrator was so sing-song annoying that I've finally stopped listening to the book. She was totally wrong! Generously gave three stars because Gross really is a very good writer and I'd hate to discourage others from reading his previous books. Andrew Gross, ditch the narrator who makes every event sound like a day at the park, don't be so predictable, and stay away from the hot-button topic of hiding illegals to live freely in the USA. To me, the fate of illegal immigrants is a factual one and shouldn't be treated in the fashion you penned.
