Publisher's Summary

When President Clay Dixon's father-in-law - a former vice president - is injured in a farming accident, First Lady Kate Dixon returns to Minnesota to be at his side. Assigned to protect her, Secret Service agent Bo Thorsen soon falls under Kate's spell. He also suspects the accident is part of a trap set for Kate by David Moses, an escaped mental patient who once loved her. What Bo and Moses don't realize is that they're caught in a web of deadly intrigue spun by a seemingly insignificant bureaucratic department within the federal government. Racing to find answers before an assassin's bullet can kill Kate, Bo soon learns that when you lie down with the devil, there's hell to pay.

A really twisted plot

You never an figure out how the tides will turn next. Really kept me interested. Very enjoyable, but I must admit the first couple of chapters nearly turned me off. The rest of the book was not nearly as twisted and the reason for those chapters became evident.

Krueger should stick with Cork..

The Cork O'Connor series have given me some great listening hours and good stories. The brisk, matter-of-fact way of writing, and the dialogue straight from the cuff worked well with the country sheriff idea. Here - not so much. Well, I should say not so much of it.
The story just didn't grip me, and seemed to draw out slowly. Can't say I'm impressed, nor that I really cared for the effort over-all.

I have to recommend a pass....

A good read

I enjoyed the twists and turns. Just a good read for a cold winter night.

waste of time and money....disappointing

1st two books were great.....the first four chapters of this book jumped all over and I almost quit it.....then the storyline got organized and was a fun read....but all of a sudden it was over and story never finished...book just ended...so thumbs down and will not buy any more from this author....
