Publisher's Summary

Four years ago... Skye Kellerman was attacked in her own bed. She managed to fend off her knife-wielding assailant, but the trauma changed everything about her life. As a result of that night, she joined two friends - also survivors - in starting The Last Stand, an organization to help victims of crime. But now... Her would-be rapist is getting out of prison. Skye knows that Dr. Oliver Burke hasn't forgotten that her testimony cost him his reputation - and his freedom. Sacramento detective David Willis, who investigated her case, believes Burke is a clear and present danger - and guilty of at least two unsolved murders. And now Burke is free to terrorize Skye again. Unless David can stop him. Unless Skye can fight back. Because Oliver Burke has every intention of finishing what he started. And that's a promise. Trust me.

Good book, but...

The book itself has been wonderful. I'm a Brenda Novak fan. My only "complaint" is that the editing is a little odd. You'll be listening along, the chapter will end and at about the same time the last word of the chapter is spoken the number of the next chapter is said...almost simultaneously. It's weird. Other than that, I'd recommend the book!!

loved it but a little disappointed..

Although i love the book, I was a little disappointed in the lack of romance between the hero and the heroine..I think it could've been a little more developed.

Narration edit is frustrating

The story is good and kept me entertained but the narration edit was frustrating because it cut off the last sentence before each new chapter.

Standing Ovation

Excellent book! Well written with strong characters. This was not intended to be a mystery but Ms. Novak developed the bad guy very well and kept my interest all the way. I would have liked a more dramatic ending to him but it worked. The narration was perfect.
