Publisher's Summary

With four back-to-back best-selling suspense thrillers to her credit, Catherine Coulter has earned an ever-growing following, thanks to her vivid characters and satisfyingly unpredictable plots. Now Coulter delivers a novel predicated on a baffling threat, fueled by a hatred dating back a generation. Political speechwriter Becca Matlock is at the top of her professional game, working for the re-election campaign of New York's popular governor, when she receives the first phone call: "Stop sleeping with the governor or I'll kill him."
Although Becca isn't sleeping with the governor, the menacing ultimatums persist. The police suddenly stop believing her, even after the stalker murders an innocent person to prove his point.
When the governor is shot in the neck, Becca flees for the safety of coastal Maine, choosing to hide not only from the stalker but also from the authorities. For sanctuary, she goes to Riptide, the home of a college friend - where she soon finds herself at even greater risk.
Listen to another FBI Thriller.

Critic Reviews

"The suspense builds and with it a romance between Becca and Adam, her main protector. Coulter has penned another fun read. The characters are well drawn and act plausibly." ( Library Journal)

Are we really expected to believe that the FBI and CIA would let an amateur run the show? This was not one of my favorite books or readers. Maybe if the reader was a little more enthusiastic and not so childlike she could have helped this book a little.

You reap what you sow..

The story was a fast paced, action packed, post Cold War/spy thriller. But the topic could have been coined from today’s Britain and USA news headlines.
All the characters were fully developed, engaging and realistically portrayed. Even when you thought the story was over, there was an added little surprise and suspenseful thrill towards the end.
The narrator did a very good job of conveying the story line and depicting the personality of each character.
A very spectacular and engrossing listen. I enjoyed it from start to finish.
