Kendall Deaton pulls herself and her baby out of a wrecked car, and a mixture of courage and fear gets her to the top of a ravine, where she flags down help. But she doesn't dare reveal her true identity to the authorities. Instead, she plans her immediate escape. Her perilous flight begins.
The best public defender in Prosper, South Carolina, Kendall had stumbled upon the town's chilling secret - and her marriage to one of the town's most powerful men has become a living hell. Now Kendall is a terrified mother trying to save her child's life...a reluctant witness who knows too much about an insidious evil...and a woman surrounded by forces that will stop at nothing to protect what is "theirs".

"This page-turner is a must on any summer beach reading list and a testament to Brown's gifts as a talented storyteller." (Today)
"The push-pull generated by John's memory loss and Kendall's terror sparks a sexual tension that is deftly and vividly consummated, and secrets keep popping out until the last page. Brown's forte is glitch-free, all-over-the-map plotting, and her take on white-trashy behavior pushes just the right buttons." (Publishers Weekly)
This could have been a great book it had an interesting plot line. However, the somewhat graphic sex scenes where a little much.
The character of the best friend Ricky Due was ridiculous and I was disappointed because she could have been an interesting character. instead she came off as cheesy and was too sex obsessed.
narrating was awful. story just OK. Not even close to her standards. Victor Slazak is tons better. this narrator sounded ridiculous door such a smart and strong main character. it totally distracted me from story.
maybe - i read Friction and thought it was good - so bought this one - but the voice of the main character was awful and while the story line was good - the exaggerated and cliched over dramatization was annoying - too many unbelievable parts ... no way that smart lawyer would fall for that idiot much less marry him, no way she would wander through the woods at night, ...
looking for it now
the main female character was to soft and whiney
the plot was good
Yes it had me wondering and thinking about the next thing to happen, then fooled me with a twist. Great to listen to.
The book was well written and read. The book had my wife and I wondering what was next, then have us thinking one thing and coming out totally different. Enjoyed listening to this book. Unabridged are always the best way to go,
Great narration, the story was both exciting and romantic with just enough humor. I will look for more Sandra Brown books
