She used to work for the US government, but very few people ever knew that. An expert in her field, she was one of the darkest secrets of an agency so clandestine it doesn't even have a name. And when they decided she was a liability, they came for her without warning. Now she rarely stays in the same place or uses the same name for long. They've killed the only other person she trusted, but something she knows still poses a threat. They want her dead, and soon.

This book was just not the right tone for the narration, it put me to sleep, twice. I wish I had not downloaded it. But it cost me nothing, so nothing gained and nothing lost. Try it , though, many have liked this book and so you may like it also.

Two years ago, Sara's husband left for the gym one morning...and never came back. His car was found. He wasn't. Unbelievably, the police report said, "no foul play suspected." There were a few sightings over the following months, but little else. Now, on the last day before summer break, her three children have gone missing from their schools, all at the same time. And the note under her windshield wiper asks one foreboding question: Are you ready to play the game?

This is a book about hard work, winning, losing, pride and so much more. it's told by the person going through a trauma. It's subject is something we all think about. This is one man's journey, it will make you think, and hopefully realize what is really important to you.
