Are you ever really innocent until proven guilty?
Sophia Naziri is wanted for questioning in the murder of a US senator. She's worried the police will show up on her doorstep any moment, but when Detective Colby Black appears, it's to help her put out a kitchen fire, not take her in. Yet. His easy smile and persistence in getting to know her pushes all her troubles to the back of her mind, until a hit man tracks her down. Getting arrested becomes the least of her worries and the handsome detective could be her only way out - if she tells him the truth.
Colby Black's sniper skills have been a blessing and a curse to him. As a member of a hostage negotiation team, he can use them to save people, but sometimes he can't protect the innocent despite his best efforts. When a hostage situation goes bad, he tries to put it behind him by helping out his mysterious next-door neighbor, Sophia Naziri. But she pulls Colby into a web of lies and conspiracy that will force him to use every skill he has in order to survive. Faced with the moment of truth, can he trust anyone around him - including the woman at the center of it all?

I read this book before listening to the audio book so the actual story wasn't a surprise but I really loved listening to someone else read me this story. Obviously, I loved the book or I wouldn't have spent the time listening to it later. This book was so perfect for my road trip. I didn't quite get it finished on the road trip so I finished it up at home while ironing and cooking. I loved it.
Colby was my favorite character, hands down. I love his fierce dedication to doing the right thing. He is a protector and just an all around great guy.
This is the second book I've listened to that has been narrated by Simon Pringle- Wallace. I love his voice. He does a fantastic job.
This series is one of my very favorites. This story has excellent forward movement and I was engaged from beginning to end.
I appreciated Mr Wallace's interpretation of the novel
Colby, because wow. He's one of a kind fantastic.
I actually preferred his performance in Ashes, Ashes, to the novella I listened to before.
The climax of the story really had me on the edge of my seat. I wasn't sure how Sophia was going to get out of her predicament.
Overall, this made for a great afternoon's listen. Good book, good performance by the narrator. I recommend it.
