For DEA Special Agent Marshall Everett, life as he knows it is over once a gunshot wound renders his arm useless. Barred forever from the undercover work he loves, he has nothing - no close friends, no family, no hometown or base, and no desire to settle for life behind a desk. He's called to action in the most unlikely of places when he stumbles upon a beautiful girl burying an old steel box in a Parisian park.

The concept of the story is very predictable and makes common sense. I'm actually surprised I have not seen many books based on Facebook like this. I found the fact that the story takes place in the 90's quite funny. The AOL era, floppy disk, and not everyone having a computer: time was interesting. What I did not like was the ending. You don't know what happened and if anything did come true. Your left not knowing the story based on present day. Since the story had a lot to do with future, it was ok not knowing how that ends. However not knowing the characters present life.. the book just ends. In a nutshell; it's like this..a boy meets a girl. In the future their not together. But in the present they seem to want to be together. In both sides of the story, you never find out what happens. Very bad ending!

Two words: the bullet. That's all it takes to shatter her life. Caroline Cashion is beautiful, intelligent, a professor of French literature. But in a split second, everything she's known is proved to be a lie. A single bullet, gracefully tapered at one end, is found lodged at the base of her skull. Caroline is stunned. It makes no sense: She has never been shot. She has no entry wound, no scar. Then, over the course of one awful evening, she learns the truth.

Loved it. Had a lot of action, and is a mind boggling thriller. The illusion that someone is there, then it's not; just to find out it was. It's a psychological action love story. I liked the fact that the main character is a psychotherapist. The narrator was great.

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.

I don't know what I would do, with a mother with dementia who treated me bad. It's a tough story but you can't put it down. On top of dealing with being a caregiver, the main character has to deal with stalking and what can be seen as a ghost. I like that the author combined many themes. I avoid books with heavy accents but I managed to handle this one.
