Publisher's Summary

Nearly three decades ago, Katherine Kyle and Jamison Parker saved the life of the president of the United States, in the process exposing an exceedingly dangerous, powerful shadow organization. The entire episode came at great personal cost and forever changed the trajectory of the couple's lives.

Now at the peak of her career as one of the preeminent novelists of the day, Jay is finally ready to put the past to rest in a fictional treatment...until powerful government forces intervene.

Oscar-winning actress Dara Thomas and her new wife, screenwriter Rebecca Minton, may hold the key to disseminating the truth.

Two of the most visible, formidable power couples in the country stand against the might of a government hell-bent on keeping secrets.

From the hallowed halls of the White House to the glittering streets of Hollywood, this is one adventure for the books.

Performance subpar for this one

I really enjoyed this series, but the voices were off in this book. Kate’s voice was totally wrong, she used a completely different voice that just didn’t sound right after the first three were so consistent. There weee a few times where Jay would be talking but it done in Kate’s voice or some other mix up. Some words seemed like they were incorrect and made no sense in the placement in the sentences. Overall it was a good story but the performance took me out of it.

Anither great story. shame about narration

What happened to Kate's voice? Ms Beresford's narration has been exemplary across the first three books in the series until this book, yet she portrays Kate as a matronly spinster in this book.
it really did spoil it for me. Otherwise, another command performance from author. and narrator both.

Fine installment in this series

Enjoyed the additional character of ‘the frog’ - the French good guy Sebastian who’s a hacker who’s continually mangling American English idioms. Also nice to see Lorraine and Peter reappear in this story.
The best aspect of this series is the political intrigue and suspense. The books would get a wider audience if author would keep the romance aspect to PG rating. I would prefer the romance be kept to that rating, too. Just cuz I like to read/listen to stories with lesbian characters who have happy and fulfilled lives doesn’t mean I want to see their explicit bedroom activity.

Absolutely wonderful story, Not my favorite voice.

The story is lovely, a toss back to being in love back when you dared not let the wrong people find out about it. It was a harsh time to find yourself attracted to the same sex and have that being such a burden to being able to explore it and try to revel in it. The narrator is not horrible at the job, she reads quite clearly and is easily understood. You can tell the characters apart pretty well, and she puts a good amount of emotions and feelings into her words. I simply find her voice harsh to my ears, and that is in no way her fault. By the end of the book, I was able to simply enjoy the story with it's extremes and got used to the voice that brought the story to me.

Bravo!!

Loved this book, loved the entire Kate and Jay series. Suggest one also reads “All That Lies Within” to get to know Dara and Rebecca, who are key to the story as well as Kate and Jay. Kudos to author Lynn Ames for the riveting, engaging story and delightful, characters you fall in love with and cheer for.

listened to the entire series in one week. Brilliant. I felt the need to start each book as soon as I'd finished the last one.
