Publisher's Summary

In New York Times best seller Allison Brennan's Cold as Ice, FBI Agent Lucy Kincaid must get into the head of a psychopath to save her family, and herself

Two years ago, FBI Agent Lucy Kincaid put psychopath Elise Hansen Hunt in juvenile detention for her role in an organized crime syndicate. Now eighteen, Elise has been released with a clean slate, and plans to take her revenge by making Lucy's life hell. The plot begins with Lucy's husband Sean Rogan, who has been arrested for a murder he most certainly did not commit.

Lucy is determined to prove Sean's innocence, but is warned off the case by her boss. As she calls in reinforcements, she learns that Sean’s brother Kane is missing in Mexico, her partner Nate Dunning has been arrested for possession of cocaine, and her friend Brad Donnelly has been kidnapped outside DEA headquarters. Lucy realizes that Elise doesn't have the resources or patience to execute such a devious plan. Did Elise's father orchestrate everything from prison? Or is there someone even more calculating seeking revenge on Lucy by hurting the people she loves?

One thing is certain: If Lucy doesn't find the answers fast, Sean will die.

Narrator was annoying. She over acted a lot. Story was ok but it just felt like a little happy ending.

DNF due to atrocious narrator

If I could give the narrator a negative 1 milliom stars I would. She sounds like an excitable Jewish Grandma instead of Lucy's late 20's California girl. The narrator is shrill and over exaggerates everything. It's like having Fran Dresher read Romeo & Juliet - not the right person for the characters. I only made it to the 4th chapter before I couldn't stand listening to the horror any more. Never was able to get into the story - and I LOVE Allison Brennan's books. My only hope is that the BARD program will have one of their narrators record the book so that I am able to continue the series.

Narration Made This Book Even Worse

The narrator was so over the top with emotions I'm not sure I can finish this book. Also, the number of times I had to her Lucy say, "he didn't do it" was nuts - this book hasn't grabbed me because more time is being spent on the emotions instead of the hunt and mystery. It gets old hearing the same thing over and over and over........... Sorry but I don't get the great reviews as I'm half way through and I just keep hearing the same info. I've liked the earlier books but this one may have lost me as a reader. Too much emotion not enough story. I did finish but found the last 3.5 -4 hours a bit more interesting but I think between the reader and the constant repeats of what people are thinking I'm done with this series.

Great story horrible narration

Another excellent story by Brennan. However, the narrator was over the top on emotions. It was almost unbearable. I’ve read everyone of the Lucy Kinkaide novels. Ann Marie Lee ruined this audible for me.

Love the Lucy Kincaid books

I love Allison Brennan's books, but just like with the last book, this narrator makes Lucy sound like a wimpy whiny middle aged woman.

Get a different narrator next time

The historical shrill voice for Lucy was very hard to listen to. I wanted to say calm down as much as the other characters kept saying it.

WOW!!!

My God! This book had me from the very first syllable. My heart hammered throughout this entire book. Allison Brennan is the Master of Suspense. Ann Marie Lee IS Lucy Kincaid, she makes this series. There several other amazing narrators on Audible, and NONE could touch Anne Marie Lee’s work in this series. This book was the best one of the entire series. I can’t recommend this book enough. It most certainly deserves more than 5 stars. I can’t wait for the next book, the suspense will be torture. I highly recommend beginning at the very beginning because you’ll be completely lost. You will have absolutely no regrets that’s for certain, and you will have the backstory and will know all the key players. I must say the Houston PD especially the 2 detectives Brennan and that bitch Mendez are undoubtedly terrible detectives and certainly paint local law enforcement in a bad bad way.
