A typical day at a Chicago travel agency turns deadly when Blayne Keller witnesses a mafia murder. Overnight, her life is turned upside down and she is thrust into WITSEC, the Federal Witness Protection Program, against her wishes. But the mob is determined to keep her from testifying and has someone on the inside leaking information about her every move.

Audio quality: Very inconsistent quality with multiple obvious dub overs. Also, the "Greek" accent of one of the main characters was questionable and hard to get past for me.

Storyline: Author's efforts to create sexual tension rely almost solely on sexual harassment, digressing at times into assault. That's not sexy. Apparently no means yes and if you push hard enough you will get the girl? This kept me fairly uncomfortable throughout the book.

Then, the final culmination was based on an impossibly unrealistic meeting of characters, and seemed to just be tacked on the the very end of the book.

It earned that second star because I did actually finish it, and the writing quality and character/story development was pretty good aside from the points mentioned above.
