Publisher's Summary

Sandhamn Island’s archipelago is a beautiful place to visit. For a mother on the run, it’s the only place to hide in a novel of escalating suspense by Viveca Sten, bestselling author of Still Waters.

Building a case against Andreis Kovač is a risky strategy for prosecutor Nora Linde. A violent key player in Stockholm’s drug trade and untouchable when it comes to financial crimes, he has the best defense money can buy. To topple Andreis’s empire, Nora’s working a different angle. It’s personal. Nora’s critical witness is Andreis’s wife, Mina - if she’ll testify. 

Mina has suffered her husband’s rage too long. It’s nearly cost her her life. Still carrying the traumas of the Bosnian War, Andreis can be triggered like an explosive. He must be taken down. And as the trial looms, Mina and her infant son must disappear. The police have found her a safe place to hide on Runmarö Island in Sandhamn’s archipelago. But there’s no shelter from a man as powerful and merciless as Andreis. Especially when he’s being crossed. 

His campaign of terror has just begun. He’s prepared to crush anyone who stands in his way: Mina, Nora, and everyone they know and love. Andreis is coming for them. This time, Nora is on the defense.

Love the series but...

Love the series but feel like this one was just phoned in so to speak. This might be my last book from this series as the story lines are getting too far fetched. I hate to be critical given I’m not a writer myself but I would thought her editor at least
could have helped her on some of the more obvious plot holes.

Not the best of the series

This was one where you find yourself asking the characters if they are just stupid a number of times through the story. The story relied upon the ill thought actions to carry the plot when I felt more clever options were available

A hard read, due to the subject matter.

I struggled with the level of violence but made it through. Justice prevailed at a cost.
