Publisher's Summary

Behind her mask is a deadly secret... The powerful head of the covert mercenary organization The Committee, Isobel Lambert is a sleek, sophisticated professional who comes into contact with some of the most dangerous people in the world. But beneath Isobel's cool exterior a ghost exists, haunting her with memories of another life...a life that ended long ago. But Isobel's past and present are about to collide when Serafin - mercenary, assassin, and the most dangerous man in the world - makes a deal with The Committee. Seventeen years ago Isobel shot him and left him for dead. Now it looks as if he's tracked her down for revenge. But Isobel knows all too well that looks can be deceiving...and that's what she's counting on to keep her cover in this international masquerade of murder.

I've given this book four stars because I loved it and couldn't stop listening to it even though it had so many obvious flaws. Most difficult to ignore were the glaring deficiencies of the narrator who (I think) tried an English accent for one character and, astonishingly, a vaguely Middle Eastern one for the hero who, we're told, was raised in L.A. I still have no idea what she was thinking but the fact that I could focus on the story despite these potential distractions means it must have been a pretty good one.
For readers new to Anne Stuart, she truly excels in creating utterly miserable (but courageous/heroic) heroines who soldier bravely through much adversity before they're rewarded by their climactic release. Always the same - always satisfying. Her heros mangage to walk the line of cruelty without losing their appeal - which I always think is a nice trick. An excellent trick here. Following the principle that many fine cakes can be made of the same recipe - Stuart fans will find this book a tasty creation indeed.

- Kelley "Lover of ideas who feels no guilt at all about her pleasures."

Thrilling...

Good story; tight pacing; interesting, gritty characters. This is one of several related books; reading the others will give you a better feel for the characters. Anne Stuart always seems to write stories that keep you engrossed in the adventure. I could hardly stop listening at times--even though I knew I needed sleep!
