Publisher's Summary

Her narrow escape from blue-eyed assassin Tom Booker has made former data analyst Dani Britton question all of her choices-like trusting "good guys" who carry badges. On the run and haunted by the government-sanctioned massacre of her coworkers, Dani finally settles in remote Redemption Key, Florida, at a bar where strong drinks and shady deals are the norm. The bar owner, a local operator with a past of his own, gives Dani a job, no questions asked, and soon Dani's ability to "read" the sketchy characters doing business at the bar proves invaluable. The libations flow, and the Key's laid-back vibe and warm waters start doing their therapeutic work. But as the mercury rises, a twisted deal starts to go down-threatening to take Dani with it. Like sharks smelling blood, players on both sides of the law circle for the kill. And when charming apex predator Booker joins the frenzy, he may turn out to be the only one on Dani's side.

Odd little book

A "Daily Deal", knew nothing about the author or the book before listening.... which was probably my mistake. There are a series of books by this author, and I don't know where this one fits in, but it was obvious there was a lot of back-story about these much-wounded, bodies-covered-with-scars characters. The past was alluded to, but I never got over the feeling that I'd walked into the middle of a play.

It was well read and parts were interesting -- I could see the attraction -- but when I was an hour from the end, and had just listened to yet another set of paragraphs enthusing over Dani's body parts, most frequently extolling her exquisite legs, her "thin little arms" and her "tiny little feet", I decided I'd had enough. There's more to writing a "thriller" than endless descriptions of her body -- and everyone else's, come to think of it. Much ink was spend on defining, over and over again, everyone's body type, very very big, little teeny tiny, and in between. Seemed very strange.

So I never did really get into it -- it had great potential. I liked the location. But way too thin a story line to be compelling, and the characters never emerged from two-dimensional.

Listen to The Widow File before this book

Dani Britton continues her attempts to escape assassin Tom Booker by moving to the Florida keys (Redemption Key) and taking a job in a bar. This book is a continuation of The Widow File. The twist at the end earns it the 4th star.

Note to author: temperatures in the Florida keys do not reach 107 degrees F., not even close!
