Political speechwriter Becca Matlock is at the top of her professional game, working for the re-election campaign of New York's popular governor, when she receives the first phone call: "Stop sleeping with the governor or I'll kill him."
Although Becca isn't sleeping with the governor, the menacing ultimatums persist. The police suddenly stop believing her, even after the stalker murders an innocent person to prove his point.
When the governor is shot in the neck, Becca flees for the safety of coastal Maine, choosing to hide not only from the stalker but also from the authorities. For sanctuary, she goes to Riptide, the home of a college friend - where she soon finds herself at even greater risk.
Listen to another FBI Thriller.

"The suspense builds and with it a romance between Becca and Adam, her main protector. Coulter has penned another fun read. The characters are well drawn and act plausibly." (Library Journal)
Are we really expected to believe that the FBI and CIA would let an amateur run the show? This was not one of my favorite books or readers. Maybe if the reader was a little more enthusiastic and not so childlike she could have helped this book a little.
I really like the Sherlock/Savage FBI series. The books are entertaining and well written. This narrator was also very acceptable. This wasn't my favorite in the series , but still worth the credit
YES. BECAUSE CAT HASN'T DISAPPOINTED ME YET.
When Becca Finally Met Her Dad.
No I haven't.
No. Laugh. Teared up when she met her dad.
Must read or listen. Catherine is at the top of her game.
I have read all of the FBI series a number of times, but do not enjoy the audio books because the reader does a terrible job.
She does a terrible job with the various voices. She cannot do male voices at all. She made very macho verile Dillion Savich sound like Pee Wee Herman. All of the male voices are high and squeeky.
Yes, if you can get around the readers voice, the story is great. Luckily I have read the book a couple of times.
I'm a fan of the series, The Cove was ok, THe Maze was pretty good, although The Target was a little slow at times overall it was good. However, I was not interested by the characters or the plot in this one. I also found the narrator's voice a little bit annoying, although I have a hard time pinpointing why. I always like to read series from the beginning and in order, but I could have skipped this one. I am sure the next one will be better.
