Publisher's summary

Winner of the 2016 Illumination Book Awards Gold Medal for Christian Fiction Ebook.

Travel photojournalist Chloe McConnaughey thought she understood her brother, Tate - a brilliant programmer willing to compromise anything to get ahead. She just didn’t know that included her. When Tate dies unexpectedly, Chloe copes by taking an assignment in the Caribbean where she meets Jack, a charming Manhattan escapee who almost has her believing life could turn around. But the illusion is shattered when a series of bizarre incidents leaves them framed for murder and running from killers convinced that Chloe is the key to questions Tate left behind. Suddenly, Jack’s timely entrance into her life seems more than coincidental, but with nowhere else to turn, Chloe must trust this man who is not only charming, but also dangerous, and much better at evading capture than he should be. Strained to the breaking point by a life consistently marked by tragedy, Chloe fights a sense of hopelessness, confronting the age-old question: If it’s not all random - if God does exist - why would he allow bad things to happen to good people? 

Hunted from the tiny island of St. Gideon all the way to Miami, Chloe and Jack desperately search for the evidence that will prove their innocence and eliminate them as targets of the shadowy conspiracy that will stop at nothing to make its problems go away. 

Thrilling suspense laced with faith and romance.

so glad I listened to this book!

This is not my typical read but I am SO glad that I listened to this book! it was detailed and suspenseful in such a good way. It was easy to listen to (no confusing names or places to try and keep track of) and the twists and turns kept me on my toes. the book was long enough that the character development wasn't rushed. I liked the main character because she was so real in her reactions to the wild things happening in her life. definitely snag this for a long car ride or a good me time listen!

Great Story

I am so glad I chose this book. I was unfamiliar with the author and was thrilled to read a really good mystery with an intricate plot and excellent narration. I definitely want to listen to the rest of this series. It is nice to listen to a good mystery with good language. Worth a credit.

Great read and listen!!

I have to say that suspense books aren't normally my go-to book, but I LOVED this book! I finished it in less than a week because I couldn't stop listening! It's a series of tense moments that will keep you on the edge of your seat. An eloquently written and read book that combines all the aspects of a great suspense read- thrill, mystery, surprise, plot twists, and of course romance. I thought the characters were all very well developed, and I enjoyed observing their growth from the beginning to the end of the story. I can't wait for the next book in the series to be published! Thanks for a great read and listen- I'd recommend to anyone!!

not bad

I was desperate to listen to something new but it must be clean. The story was good. Lots of twists and turns, but I wonder if I would have LOVED it if I had read it myself. The narrator was not great. If the next book in the series is narrated by her I will not be listening to it.

will order the next one

I loved listening to a book with Christian values. I didnt have to listen to sex scenes or vulgarity. The story wasn't perfect but it was still a good listen. Thankful for the spiritual additions.

There’s a sequel? Wow, I’m excited.

I loved this book and can’t wait to start this next one. I couldn’t understand the ending of the book. A sequel, that explains it.

Christian story?

Mostly enjoyed, but so little mention of faith it hardly fits in Christian category

Listen and learn from James Patterson

For this to be such an award winner I was very disappointed. Many times I felt like screaming the pace was so slow.
