Publisher's Summary

US Attorney General Allison Leahy is the Democrats' best chance for holding on to the Oval Office. But she's running neck and neck with her opponent, Republican Lincoln Howe, a retired four-star general and bona fide African American hero. Then, days before the election, disaster strikes.

Twelve-year-old Kristen Howe, the general's granddaughter, is kidnapped. As the nation's leading law enforcement officer, Allison launches a nationwide manhunt - even as her opponent publicly questions her motives. For Allison, though, finding Kristen isn't about politics. It's a personal crusade that taps in to terrifying secrets buried deep within the past - secrets that can shatter all of Allison's hopes, twisting them into a nightmare of lies and the ultimate betrayal.

Narrator drove me crazy!

The story was good. Lots of twists! The narrator, however, was awful! There was no emotion whatsoever, and I thought if he mispronounced "grimace" one more time, I was going to scream! There a few other words he screwed up too. Was very distracting!

Political Thriller with a Twist

I loved the story but sometimes the timing between chapters seemed rushed. It did have a happy ending.

Very Engaging

Good depth of characters. Depicts the crazy political and selfish world of today. While the author over used the word grimace and the reader mispronounced it, I could overlook the blunder because the story outshined the error.

The Abduction

I like the story but the narrator drove me crazy pronouncing grimaced. Honestly, it was so distracting I almost stopped listening. Otherwise, a bit predictable but overall a good storyz
