Publisher's Summary

In this gripping thriller, an ex-agent on the run from her former employers must take one more case to clear her name and save her life.

She used to work for the US government, but very few people ever knew that. An expert in her field, she was one of the darkest secrets of an agency so clandestine it doesn't even have a name. And when they decided she was a liability, they came for her without warning.

Now she rarely stays in the same place or uses the same name for long. They've killed the only other person she trusted, but something she knows still poses a threat. They want her dead, and soon.

When her former handler offers her a way out, she realizes it's her only chance to erase the giant target on her back. But it means taking one last job for her ex-employers. To her horror, the information she acquires only makes her situation more dangerous.

Resolving to meet the threat head-on, she prepares for the toughest fight of her life but finds herself falling for a man who can only complicate her likelihood of survival. As she sees her choices being rapidly whittled down, she must apply her unique talents in ways she never dreamed of.

In this tautly plotted novel, Meyer creates a fierce and fascinating new heroine with a very specialized skill set. And she shows once again why she's one of the world's best-selling authors.

What the Critics Say

"Even with Archer's outstanding portrayal of Alex, secondary characters Kevin and Val still steal all their scenes, thanks to Archer's memorable voices. Pack your go bag and enter Meyer's breathless romantic suspense." (AudioFile)

    Any additional comments?

    Awesome book. It is a good thing I am retired because I did not sleep at all because I had to find out what happened next. Some reviewers did not think the characters were well developed, but I must disagree. I believe they were very well fleshed out and were interesting people. The plot was intense but I cannot explain why without giving spoilers and I don't want to do that.

    I loved the part the dogs play in the story. I wish they had been addressed in the epilogue because they were so lovable and brave. However, the book does not leave you hanging. It wraps up at the end but leaves the door open for a sequel, which I would very much enjoy. I hope the author has one in mind.

    The narrator is excellent. There were no fake voices. There was not a jarring diference between female and male voices. She was not over the top and dud bit bring attention to herself and get in the way of the story. I was impressed and pleased with her performance.

    "A good, easy listen to pass the time"

    This is a good conspiracy novel with a little unrealistic romance thrown in, but we knew it was going to happen. The story wasn't overly complicated and was predictable in many parts, but it was fun to listen to. The performance by Ellen Archer was excellent. There are a few annoying things about the characters such as the insecurities of the heroine that make a grown woman sound like she is 13 and the naivete of Daniel that is unrealistic for any grown man. The story gets better as it goes along and overall was definitely worth listening to and quite entertaining.

    I loved this book. The female character is strong, brilliant, capable, and very likable. It was not predictable. And I thoroughly enjoyed the narrator.

    "Great Listen"

    I was skeptical, but the story, charaters, twists and turns had me wanting more. Great attention to detail, vivid feelings and raw emotions. Cheesy ending that played perfectly. Just what I needed to get my rouge-agent-spy-suspense-romamce fix.

    "A Healthy Likeable Meyer's Book"

    It was slow going for the first few chapters. Then the book found it's cruising gear and I settled in for a good story.

    "Suspenseful sans vampires (phew)"

    I kept seeing this book pop up in my recommendations. I was never interested in the Twilight series so I kept passing it by .
    Never judge an author by one genre.
    I really enjoyed this listen. Suspenseful and interesting characters, man and animal (dogs ,nothing crazy). Will gladly check out this author again.
