Publisher's Summary

For more than a year, Sebastian Costas has been trying to unravel the truth behind the murder of his ex-wife and son. Despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, he's convinced that her second husband - a cop - committed both murders, then faked his own death. Now Sebastian has followed the slimmest of leads to Sacramento...and that's where he finally gets the break he needs. Jane Burke, an investigator with The Last Stand, calls him in connection with a separate crime - a crime that could lead him straight to the man he's been looking for.

Once married to a serial killer, Jane has spent the past five years rebuilding her life. And with Sebastian, she finally has a chance at happiness. But the man they're after is after them, too. For him, this has become a personal battle, one he's determined to win. Whatever it takes.

    "Ten for Murder - Two for love"

    To be fair, I only listened to half of the book. I can only bear tension and cruelty if I have two strong romantic leads to care about - and I didn't have that in this book. The (first half at least) plot is certainly strong, but the romance felt completely tacked on and unconvincing. If you're just looking for a thriller, you might enjoy it. I don't know enough about the genre to say how original it was - but I thought the villian was believable and frightening.
    To sum up: Fear - yes. Romance - no.

    "Not the author's fault"

    This is the second books of Mrs. Novak's that I don't care to listen to again but that I would read more than once if I could. I have not been able to read printed books for about 2 years now because of an eye disease so I rely on the audio versions. I'm not very picky when it comes to readers but this one ruins the book for me. She makes the book loose it's suspenseful edge and puts no proper inflection into the characters interactions. I wish it could be rerecorded with a different reader.
