Publisher's Summary

Savage, a former Navy SEAL and American state-of-the-art security specialist. Akira, Japan's most brilliant executive protector and a master of the samurai arts. Their mission: the retrieval of Rachel Stone, a beautiful American woman whose ruthless billionaire husband is out to destroy her.

But quickly Savage and Akira realize they are trapped in a mission more far-reaching than the protection of one person. For they are bound together in a common nightmare, a set of horrifying memories, a terrifying past that never happened, but is somehow inexplicably real. Only together can they confront the mystery. Yet when they do, an even more chilling scenario awaits them - one with the power to shatter not only their world but ours as well.

Critic Reviews

"The plot - if far-fetched - is strong, and the characters are wonderfully drawn." (School Library Journal)

Nice light read...kind of sappy

The author has a good concept... the main character over thinks himself and the heroine's thoughts make you chuckle. Not bad...

The Fifth Profession

The story may be wonderful, however, after listening to this dramatized version of the novel I had to turn it off. The narrator's voice was like finger nails on a chalk board and the multiple voices drove me nuts. Too bad - I think I may just read this one..

Very Odd

The story isn't all that bad but in the hundreds of audiobooks I have listened to I never heard one narrated like this one. There is no narrator listed and it sounds as if computer generated voices were used to narrate this book. The editing is horrible and a credit should not be wasted on this book.

Would probably avoid

Think 'Manchuarian Candidate' as would be written by Barbara Cartland. Hackneyed, cliched, and not to his usual standard.
