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.

Impossibly sad, profoundly moving, deeply romantic, and stunning in its intensity. This is a book that stays with you and despite the title, you'll likely shed some tears. Milla and Diaz are easily my favorite characters in contemporary fiction and their story is rich and layered and entirely believable. Linda Howard just keeps getting better and better.
This was cativating from the first and kept me attached to my ipod in order to finish listening. The caracters are wonderful and Linda Howard develops them with depth and excitiment. Very good read and hard to let go until the finish. Makes me want to find another Linda Howard to read!

DIG out the kleenex because this is a sad touching story. excellent READER~ 5 star all the way from reader, story and over all performance one of Linda Howards VERY best.
This book was great! It was very hard to put down. Loved it.
Other reviewers hype the character development in this story. I'm sorry to say that the character development was rushed and fairly unrealistic for the most part. As was the story itself. The writing seemed uneven.
Sure. She's a fun read and I've enjoyed most of her books in the past. Best one was After the Night.
The narrator seemed to over enunciate every word to the point that she sounded robotic and lacked any emotion. It wasn't until close to the end of the story that she seemed to sound more relaxed and in tune with the story.
To be honest; I thought about skipping the rest of the book. I just wasn't invested in these characters' lives. But I did want to find out if Milla found her lost son so I stuck with it.
Shocking, riveting, emotional.
There are so many I can't choose just one.
I thought the reader was excellent. Into the story without going over the top.
Milla is a woman who when she makes a promise she sticks to it. There were a few moments when she could have broke promises but never did. That is a strong woman.
I was incredibly compelled by the characters in this book. I loved how different everyone was and what made them click. I know that this will be one that I will read over again.
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.
This is listed under my husbands name but he never listens to audible books. I'm the one that does and my name is Vicki.
This book will keep you up at night after reading it. Milla Edge has made it her lifes quest to find stolen children after her own was stolen. Have a box of kleenex handy and maybe a bottle of tums while listening to this book.
