The chase is on in this utterly suspenseful and unputdownable mystery from New York Times bestselling author Mary Burton.
After being on the run for the last nine months, Kristen Rodale has finally settled in a small town in Virginia, where she hopes her dangerous and deadly brother Benito can never find her.
But former FBI agent, Dane Cambia, has other ideas: after his sister died at the hands of Kristen’s brother, he wants to hunt Kristen down and use her as bait to get his final revenge on Benito.
Cambia manages to locate Kristen, setting his plan in motion. But playing into the killer’s hands is just the beginning of Kristen and Cambia’s new nightmare…
My thoughts: I felt a bit sorry for Kristen, none of this is her fault and she’s been used as a pawn by her brother and then by Dane and Lucien. All she wants is the quiet life, keeping her head down, in a place where she finally feels safe.
Yes, she should have testified but how many people might have died protecting her on the way to court. Dane manipulates her and uses her, rather than just being honest and asking for her help.
I got a bit frustrated reading this because I don’t agree that falling for Dane was the right storyline, Kristen should have kicked him out when she learnt the truth and stayed with Sheridan and Crystal, running the yoga studio. Though I am glad her awful thug of a brother got his comeuppance in the end.
