When strangers pursue Ramsey to his private meadow in an attempt to kill him and the girl, he's mystified that anyone would wish her harm. And the child can't shed any light on the subject: she's mute.
Molly Santera, the girl's mother, catches up with Ramsey and her daughter, mistaking her daughter's savior for a kidnapper. But soon Ramsey's real role becomes clear. With the strangers in pursuit, the trio flees to Chicago for sanctuary. Even there, however, the child's enemies prove as relentless as their motives are baffling.
With an unexpected assist from FBI agents Dillon Savich and Lacey Sherlock (last seen in The Maze), Molly and Ramsey begin to unravel the clues, and in the process they make an astonishing discovery as to the true nature of the target.
Listen to another FBI Thriller.

"Coulter, who doesn't stint on humor or romance, keeps readers guessing." (Booklist)
"A blend of romance, mystery, and excitement." (Fort Worth Daily Sun)
One of her best books. A lot of suspense. The reader takes away from the book slightly but otherwise an excellent read.
This is one of Catherine's better books. The suspense is great. The story take a few twists to keep you guessing. I thought I had it figured out several times along the way, only to find out I was wrong. Great character development. It's hard to stop listening.
I am a fan of Catherine Coulter but I feel the book has been ruined by the narrator. The characters can't even be respected due to the poor reading of this book. I have felt this about all the books I have listened to of Catherine's. I guess it will be better if I just read her books.
I liked this book. The story was a good one and Ms Coulter consistantly writes her stories well. This is one of them. The reader was very good. I would definately recomend this to my friends.
Could not even finish this book... Were it not for some of the reference to child molestation, this book would seem more suited to teens than adults. It is simply unthinkable that the people in this book would conduct themselves as they do... a federal judge on sabbatical finds a brutalized child and decides not to contact the police or FBI.. just keeps her for a week.... Gets in a shootout... wounds two guys and is wounded himself...and still does not contact law enforcement.. And the readers sing-song cadence drove me crazy.. Could not even finish it!
In her usual Coulter fashion, she did not disappoint.
Enjoyed the entire book.
She did a great job.
I read/listened to a couple of the latest novels by Catherine Coulter. Then realized I wanted to start at the beginning. She is an outstanding writer! Each book is better than the last. Each is unique as well. Thank you for fabulous reading/listening!
One expects a crime novel to be a little far-fetched, but this one out did itself. I had a hard time determining if it's main point was that of an unlikely hero surfacing, or a repressed woman finally coming into her own. A little girl who was kidnapped (I don't think that I'm giving anything away) turned out to be so precocious that one wonders how she got herslef kidnapped in the first place.
I enjoy books of this genre, but will be a little more careful picking them in the future.
At the risk of being called a sexist, femal narrators just don't do as good a job of portraying men as male narrators do of portraying women. There. I've said it.
