Publisher's Summary

A clandestine government organization called Invictus “recruits” outstanding athletes for secret projects. But their top agent Jackson Holt has special, almost preternatural, qualities not even the organization can explain.

Olivia Gant, professor of Ancient Studies at a private college in California, was once Jack's childhood sweetheart. But when he deserted her, he left her alone to combat her stepfather's drunken attentions and her mother's careless neglect.

Nearly twenty years later, their paths cross in a mission to fight a bizarre religious serial killer whose methods include crucifixion and burial alive. Olivia and Jack battle for happiness against years of secrecy and distance as they use Olivia's expertise in Latin and Jack's special gifts to track a brutal killer.

Can Olivia forgive Jack for his long-ago betrayal? Can Jack allow Olivia to witness the terrible change that makes him such an effective killing machine?

    "A disapointment"

    Having read the first book in the series and enjoyed it, I decided to try #2. It was a mistake. I couldn't believe the same person authored both books. Too many gratuitous sex scenes totally unnecessary to the story line (which I hastened to skip). No mystery as to who the bad guys were. The transparent addition of red herring male characters, all of whom "desired" the heroine ad nauseam. I listened all the way to the end, hoping for redemption, but there was none. Jo Robertson has lost a reader.
