This taut, complex thriller, reflecting the political realities of current events, details a week-long, action-packed journey that culminates in a stunning conclusion in Dubai. It depicts the personal journey and physical dangers a woman must take on to save the man she loves - and to save the world. The protagonist, Jill Oliver, is a contemporary American heroine-a fresh new take on the popular type of action hero previously embodied by Jack Bauer of the hit series 24 and the characters of Tom Clancy, James Patterson, and other best-selling authors. Jill is a terrorist profiler for the US Marshal Special Operations Group and former Remote Viewer for the FBI.When her new husband David, a war correspondent for Time, disappears while on assignment in the Middle East, Jill embarks upon a journey deep into the region to find him. Deception and danger plague her every move. Her only hope is the help of a mysterious and handsome Arabian man who escorts her to the foothills on the Turkmenistan/Afghanistan border. Ultimately, however, Jill is left on her own in a sinister web of intrigue. As she overcomes both fear of external dangers and her internal demons, she learns what true deception really is.

Nothing like a good audiobook to bring life to a story. Full of adventure in a detailed account of middle east locations.
I felt the unique skills of Jill Oliver brought a fresh new approach to policing and made the listen a page turner.
I enjoy a narrator that doesn't bog down the story with theatrics. Robin Rowan has done a fantastic job with pace, bringing the ending in with a bang!
Not sure. If your looking for an airport novel that lacks the intensity of a page turner then maybe this is for you. For me the plot was simple and tended to stereotypical. The work lacked any real complexity and terminated with a predictable finish that obviously set the scene for a sequel.
More pace, more complexity, less stereotyping and a finish that respects the reader.
Although the reader seemed to try to give the book some life. for me, the performance was uninspiring and did not contribute to an experience where I was looking forward to the end of the book for all the wrong reasons.
There's a lot of 'fill' in this book that could have been edited out.
On the basis of this audiobook, I would really struggle to recommend this author or reader to others.
