Publisher's Summary

From the number-one New York Times best-selling author Iris Johansen comes a explosive, compelling new thriller. 

With his dying breath, Carl Venable, head of the CIA task force on terrorism and Jude Brandon's final link to terrorist ringleader Max Huber, gives Brandon a mandate: to keep his daughter, Rachel, safe at any cost. But Rachel Venable has a shocking, twisted past of her own, one that comes rushing back after her medical clinic in Guyana is attacked by Huber - the same man who murdered her father and kept her imprisoned for months. 

Brandon and Catherine Ling, Rachel's longtime ally and fierce protector, are determined to keep Rachel out of danger, but she knows it's impossible to stay hidden when Max Huber wants you dead. As Rachel and Brandon race against the clock to bring Huber down before he can orchestrate a nuclear explosion that will lay waste to the West Coast, they also fight a growing attraction to each other - an attraction that could prove just as dangerous as Huber himself. 

In this gripping, fast-paced novel full of dark secrets and tangled lies, one thing is clear: Everyone has a vendetta, and no one will rest until getting revenge.

Too much of women battling for control!

I have loved almost all of Iris Johansen's book but if this had not been an audiobook, I wouldn't have finished this one.
The plot/story line was OK but was totally overshadowed by the constant battling of women to be in control or trying to prove they can do things themselves rather than ask for or even accept help. I was really disappointed in Catherine Ling - I normally like the character but I found her unreasonable and just plain bitchy in this book.
If one could remove all of the power struggle dialog out of this book. it would be half the length. It just didn't seem very realistic and the dialog was repetitive and tiresome.
The reader did a fantastic job, as always.

Story good. Sappy conversations

The conversations were unrealistic and sappy for the events going on. Could of used less of these conversations during extremely stressful times

Tiresome focus on sexual tension.

I used to be a committed fan of Johansson, but lately the books seem bogged down by sexual tension that obscures the key facets. I was also sorely disappointed in the narrator—characters often indistinguishable. Very disappointing!
