Publisher's Summary

FBI Special Agent Jackson Crowne is flying his Cessna over the Appalachians with a very important passenger: renowned psychiatrist Dr. Timothy MacLean. Their destination is Washington, D.C. Upon their arrival, the FBI will protect the doctor - and ascertain just who wants him dead. But they don't make it.
In San Francisco, married FBI Special Agents Dillon Savich and Lacey Sherlock take an early-morning phone call from their supervisor, Jimmy Maitland. Maitland received a Mayday from Jack in the mountains near Parlow, Kentucky, and sends Savich and Sherlock to see what's happened.
Agent Crowne is able to bring his plane down in a narrow valley and haul the unconscious Dr. MacLean from the burning wreckage before it explodes. Their crash is witnessed by Rachael Abbott, a young woman on the run after the mysterious death of her father. When Savich and Sherlock arrive on the scene, they find Jack and Rachael in the Parlow clinic and Dr. MacLean comatose in the local hospital, prognosis unknown.
What they do know frightens them: Dr. MacLean was recently diagnosed with frontal lobe dementia, and in the months prior to the crash, his behavior had become erratic and alarmingly uninhibited, his ability to maintain doctor-patient confidentiality badly compromised. With a patient list made up of Washington movers and shakers, MacLean's role as a keeper of secrets is jeopardized as well.
Is there someone out there so desperate that they'd kill the doctor for what he knows? It is up to Jack, Savich, and Sherlock to find out - no matter the cost.

Excellent Book

I really enjoyed this book. It has been action-filled, suspenseful and just a really great book to listen to. I absolutely LOVE that there is a male and a female narrator. It really helps the characters to come alive!

Glad I tried this book.

Some people believe a realistic detective story has to be dark, deviant and full of language unsuitable for a child. I’m not one of those people and was happy to find enough lighthearted moments in this book to keep me in a good mood. The plot may not be complex but I did build enough attachment to the characters that I wanted to know what happens next. That is why I burned through this audiobook in a day. I’m glad that I did not let the abundance of average and below ratings deter me from trying this book.

I am familiar with the setting of this book and came away feeling that the author is not. While there is nothing inherently wrong with the descriptions of the area the mannerisms of the people were not quite right. It felt like a town in the hills of Kentucky populated by people from the mid-west. I doubt that most readers will notice.

Narration – I enjoyed listening to the book without thinking about the narrator. That is a good thing.
