Traveling to a small village in Mexico on a reliable tip, Milla begins to uncover the dire fate of countless children who have disappeared over the years in the labyrinth of a sinister baby-smuggling ring. The key to nailing down the organization may rest with an elusive one-eyed man. To find him, Milla joins forces with James Diaz, a suspicious stranger, known as the Tracker, who conceals his own sinister agenda.
As the search intensifies, the mission becomes more treacherous. For the ring is part of something far larger and more dangerous, reaching the highest echelons of power and influence. Caught between growing passion and imminent peril, Milla suddenly finds herself the hunted - in the crosshairs of an invisible, lethal assassin who aims to silence her permanently.

This story grabs and pulls you in from the very beginning. To see a mother so determined, refusing to give up until she finds her child who was stolen from her, you can't stop listening until you know the outcome.
I love the way the characters were intertwined, and that I had all the information that I needed to solve this.
My favorite scene is when Dias says ----I felt as if I was shot and wanted to drop down and kiss your feet.
I would loved to have read the whole book in one sitting, as it was I finished 2 hours after I needed to go to sleep. I had to listen to the last 30 minutes again it was so good
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
the title states the story. I have re listend 3 times and that is a lot for me.
Diaz our hero. Sweet, mean, sexy. "his caution amazed her" rushing river scene
Ms Bean is not my favorite reader. She is great in Sandra Brown's Witness and Tami Hogue, Still waters. This story is so good, it carries Ms Bean on this one.
this is a must as a classic romance/mystery
I believe there are 3 elements to a great romance audible book: good narration, believable plot, flawed characters and great dialogue!
I really liked this Linda Howard read. Linda did her research here, the writing and topics were very interesting to me. I connected with the main characters, and even cried at the end. The romance was believable and steamy! The narration was excellent.
Ms Bean is an excellent audio book actress and perfect for this book's mutiple roles.
This is not your typical Linda Howard book, as I actually got mad at her for making the story line so heart wrenching. However, It is a LH story that I would highly recommend hearing or reading as it shows her incredible range of talent.
I love books, it's my great escape.
Wow, I think this is one of the best romance stories from Linda Howard. I kept telling my self. I will not cry...the reviews are just going over board. Well, I cried and cried. This story is really touching. But it is a romance and its gets steamy. Its very well done. I will listen to this one again.
Used to read classic lit for pleasure of well-written prose. Now, with MS, it's thrillers, courtroom/police dramas, and adventure to escape!
Only one other time have I written a review of a book I have not finished. I felt that I wanted to let others interested in this book know that it is excrutiatingly slow! I may go back to try and finish it in the future, but I gave it two hours to capture my interest (and I usually enjoy this sort of subject matter) and it never did. I would recommend to keep looking for a different choice before purchasing this book. It reads like a bad Lifetime Channel movie.
I enjoy a good mystery but this was more romance than anything else. The last chapters were all about the heroine's love life with the bad guys caught and dismissed without much fanfare.
I love Linda Howard books and this is one of my favorites. The narration was excellent. For once, even better than reading it myself. I could "see" the characters in my mind so clearly during the reading. The emotions were conveyed so well, I wept.
