Publisher's Summary

The picture was a warning: they'd found her. For eight years Grace Archer hoped this day wouldn't come, and knew in her heart that it would. She'd taken her daughter, Frankie, to a rural Alabama horse farm that might just as well have been at the end of the earth. But the man out to kill them would gladly follow them that far. And now, it seems, he had.
A woman with a highly classified past, Grace had never run from anything in her life. But as a mother, she'd do anything to keep eight-year-old Frankie safe. Now that safe world has been shattered, and a ferocious hunter has been unleashed. Suddenly the agency that owed Grace its gratitude and protection has abandoned her and only one ally remains: a man even more dangerous than her worst enemy.
She hasn't set eyes on Jake Kilmer since the catastrophic events of eight years ago. Now he's asking Grace to trust him with the one thing more precious to her than life itself. But with a ruthless criminal kingpin determined to make her pay for the past, her and her daughter's lives on the line, and time running out, she just may have to put her faith in a man who she believes has already betrayed her once.

Critic Reviews

"The novel starts off with guns blazing and doesn't slow down for murder, kidnapping, blackmail, sex, or sandstorm." (Publishers Weekly)
"Johansen gives her readers what they have come to expect from the queen of suspense: a truly evil, skin-crawling villain and complex heroes who must tangle with him in the shadow world of foreign intrigue." (Booklist)

More like a Harlequin Romance

This book was very disappointing, The summary made this sound like it was going to have a lot of action where in fact in had very little.

The Story Revolved around an UnderSexed woman a Child Prodigy (don't you hate storys that have to use brilliant kids to create a plot) and lots of talk about horses.

The Plot was preposterous and unbelievable. Don't waste your time on this one

do not recommend

This was a long and very boring book. I have read other books by this author and enjoyed them very much, it was extremely difficult to even finishe this one. It was one of those reads that you fast forward through 1/2 of the book just to get on with it.
