When Lyle Taney took leave from her teaching job to live high in the mountains, researching the ways of eagles, she was just planning to write her next book. Lasater was an unscrupulous, skilled operative who thought he could maneuver her as he pleased. He believed women were incapable of making ethical or moral decisions - but he was wrong. When the obscure government agent from an anonymous department tried to force Lyle to spy on her mysterious neighbors, she resisted. But the first step had been taken, involving her in a life-and-death struggle.
I purchased this book expecting Johanna Ward to be the narrator - as it is stated. In fact, Kate Reading is the narrator - had I known this I would NOT have purchased this book. The story is only mediocre and the narrator is irritating. Don't waste your time with this book

This book was very wierd - more of a science fiction than a mystery novel, which is what I thought it would be. I found the plot a bit unusual too -- but more than that, it seems the author likes to name her women with men's names and the men with women's names. Has anyone else noticed that? Hiliary a man's name? Carmen a man's name? Lyle a woman's name? All in all I would have to say the book wasn't bad to listen to but not my favorite.

If you enjoy Kate Wilhelm's Lawyer series, don't get fooled into thinking this book is like those. I found it without any worthwhile comments. Don't waste your time.
