Publisher's Summary

She witnesses death through the eye of her camera. Now a relentless killer is focused on her. A celebrated photojournalist, Alex Graham has seen it all - but her latest assignment has forced her across a dangerous line. What happens when a reporter does more than just report? She has recorded some of the most tragic and heartbreaking of catastrophes, everything from natural disasters to infamous acts of terror. Her experiences have left her forever marked with the human side of tragedy. So when a dam breaks in Arapahoe Junction, Colorado, Alex is once more at the site doing more than just snapping pictures - she is in the mud with a shovel digging for survivors.

What happens when the reporter becomes the story? Alex finds more than she bargained for. In one terrible instant, she is witness to a conspiracy that will stun a nation. The official story is just a cover-up for a truth so frightening, so unthinkable, anyone who threatens to reveal it must be silenced. Forever. And now that someone is Alex Graham.

The first attempt on her life is swift and brutal. Only barely escaping, she finds an ally in an improbable source. Billionaire financier John Logan has his own reasons for protecting Alex, and these reasons alone are likely to get her killed. Using his vast connections and influences, Logan assigns a bodyguard to protect her. Judd Morgan is the best covert commando in the business, and if anyone can keep Alex safe, it's this quietly dangerous man. The problem is Alex doesn't want to be kept safe by Judd, whose checkered past has made him the target of an unseen assassin who dogs his every step.

An exercise in annoyance!!

The narration is terrible. The material is lame. The interaction between the two main characters is absolutely unbelievable. I lost count of how many time I said to myself "This book s *&s!". I had to stop listening and erase it from my player.

A Very Good Listen

I enjoyed the book it was easy to keep interest in it. I have been listening to Iris Johansen Abridged versions and I love Kate Burton The unabridged version with Burnadette Dunne does the job equally well. I didn't give 5 stars cause I thought Alex was a little on the Wimpy side considering what she had been through in her previous camera shoots. Other than that it was a Good Read.

Dead Aim

I couldn't finish because I couldn't endure the reader's voice. It was annoying.
