As a motorcycle club member and firefighter, Ian Walsh is used to riding the line between the good guys and the bad. He may owe the club his life, but his heart rests with his fire station brothers - and with the girl he's loved since they were kids, Rory Sorenson. Ian would do anything for Rory. He'd die for her. Kill for her. Defend her to his last breath - and he may just have to.

Women are turning up dead. And Lisa O'Malley digging into a crime means trouble is soon to follow. She's a forensic pathologist and mysteries are her domain. Audio book number three in the O'Malley series brings back Lisa O'Malley and U.S. Marshal Quinn Diamond from The Guardian in a tense investigative thriller. She's not a believer, and her journey toward faith is a fascinating look at how a forensic pathologist views the Resurrection. Quinn has found loving her is easier than keeping her safe.

This book would have been better for me to read rather than listen to due to all the twists. It was sometimes hard for me to track the characters. That said, I did love this book. The characters and their struggles are so well written. The narration is very good.

I like the characters and the story has very good suspense. But there is way too much graphic sex. I prefer none, but usually I can just skip a few pages. This story has pages and pages of it. Not for me. Especially in audio. The story still had good parts to it and the narration was very good. But this book is not for me.
