Publisher's Summary

A bungled covert operation kills twenty-three people and leaves Decker shouldering the blame. Embittered, he retires… and meets a captivating woman named Beth Dwyer.

Suddenly, Decker has the very thing he lived so long without: a beautiful, brilliant woman he passionately loves. But in a terrifying assault, Beth disappears - leaving an agonizing mystery in her wake. Is she still alive? Was she captured by Decker’s enemies or her own? Who is this woman he loved so completely, almost to the point of obsession? Did she love him, or use him? For Decker, the stakes are high: Beth’s love, Beth’s life, and, most of all, the truth.

I like David Morrell , but I don't care for this book.

It's a love story with murder and intrigue; however, a lot of the dialog seemed contrived and redundant. If you like that stuff , it's worth the price. I don"t think It's his best work.

Love and Action in Santa Fe

It was my first time reading a David Morrell novel, and I was pleasantly surprised by his action packed love story. The main character, Decker, and all of his supporting characters took me on a roller coaster ride of terrorist bombings, mob assassinations, and unexpected betrayals. The narration was great, and added to the excitement of the story.

90% good, the rest ... eh

Love Morrell and have read nearly all his books. This one simply didn't seem up to par for Morrell. That said, it was still a decent listen.

Didn't a Finish

David Morell has written so many excellent book however this one starts well but ends up with the main protagonist going on and on about this woman which seems so out of character for a supposed hard man.
