Publisher's Summary

A compelling new mystery from Dee Henderson!
Abducted at the age of sixteen and coerced into assisting the Jacoby crime family, Shannon Bliss has finally found a way out. She desperately wants to resume some semblance of normal life, but she also knows she has some unfinished business to attend to. She has enough evidence to put her captors behind bars for a very long time.
When Shannon contacts private investigator and former cop Matthew Dane to help her navigate her reentry into society, she quickly discovers that gaining her freedom doesn't mean her troubles are over. For one thing her brother is the leading candidate in the race for Illinois governor, and news of her escape will create a media frenzy. For another the ransom her family reportedly paid years earlier appears to have been a scam; no one knows what happened to the money. And then there's the fact that Shannon's escape involved faking her own death. If the Jacoby family learns she is still alive, they'll stop at nothing to silence her.
If justice is to be done, and if Shannon's life is ever to get on track again, Matthew will need to discover exactly what happened to her - even if it means stirring up a hornet's nest of secrets.

Good Story but don't expect a thrill ride.

Dee Henderson is a very good author over all. This is a story that can help an average individual understand the reprecussions of abuse on a large scale. Do not expect this story to move fast because you will be greatly disappointed. Shannon's story of captivity for 11 years is difficult to comprehend, but the author addresses her story with great compassion and sensitivity toward her time of recovering a life again. This story also speaks to how God is a rock to lean on during times of trial and shifting sands. Matthew Dayne is a sensitive man that understands from his own daughter's story how difficult it is to put away a troubled past. Not that I am criticizing the author here, but as a single woman I want to know who she based Matthew's character on and how can I get his number. The other characters we meet in this story are also men of great sensitivity and character. I do have to wonder after a while how many men out there are really like this? And where can I meet them? But seriously, this is a well rounded novel and I appreciated the story very much. as for the narrator Adam Verner, I found his narration to be over all fine. I do not know if Mr. Verner read this book specifically intending the gentle controlled emotional tone in production. To a certain extent it fits with the story because every time Matthew speaks to Shannon he is trying not to give off a lot of emotion. But I do think some may find that emotional control to be annoying by the end of the book. Some may call it a monotone and emotionally neutral speaking voice . As a result , others may find it difficult to stay awake for the audiobook. Make sure you listen to the sample and ask yourself if you can handle that same effect for 12 plus hours. I give this story an overall 4 stars. I will look up other Dee Henderson books in the future but I do hope if Adam is narrating that he shows more emotion in other books.

Another excellent story by Dee Henderson!

I have enjoyed the stories by Dee Henderson for over 10 years now, so as expected, I was not disappointed with this one.

Dee knows how to weave a bit of romance, for the girl in me with a whole lotta action for the tomboy in me, into her story. I also enjoy how this story and all of her stories kept it real, regarding the normal human emotions that occur in a real life experience like this. I also love how she intricately incorporated the Christian concepts of forgiveness, grace, mercy, justice and love. I can't wait for the sequel to this.
