Publisher's Summary

In this high-stakes thriller, a number one New York Times best-selling author introduces CIA Agent Alisa Flynn, who is willing to go rogue if it means catching the most heartless band of criminals she's ever encountered.

When CIA Agent Alisa Flynn flaunts the rules by breaking into a mansion in the middle of the night, she skillfully circumvents alarms and outwits guards only to find herself standing in billionaire Gabe Korgan's study...busted by Korgan himself. This could cost her her job unless, in a split second, she can turn the tables and try to convince him to join her on the most important mission of her life.

In a ripped-from-the-headlines plot, schoolgirls in Africa have been kidnapped, and Alisa knows that Korgan has the courage, financial means, and high-tech weaponry to help rescue them. With so many innocent lives hanging in the balance, what she doesn't reveal is that one of those schoolgirls is like a little sister to her. But when the truth gets out, the stakes grow even higher.

Calling in additional assistance from renowned horse whisperer Margaret Douglas, Alisa and Gabe lay their plans, only to see them descend into chaos as the line between right and wrong wavers before them like a mirage. Every path is strewn with pitfalls, each likely to get them - or the hostages - killed. But with the help of a brave team and a horse with the heart of a warrior, they might just get out of this alive.

This is a winner from the beginning to the end. I hope this is book number one. After you turn the last page you’ll be hoping too.

Great book

I did feel some of the story was a bit too graphic violence wise. Not always enjoyable to read.

The worst

I've never read/listened to an Iris Johansen before, but am a sucker for anything even remotely equine. So when I saw the horse along with mystery/thriller, I couldn't resist. Big mistake! Huge! The plot was stupid (talking horses, indeed), but the characters were the stuff of comic books. Absolutely ridiculous. I only kept listening to see what role the horses would play, but I should have stopped when they started talking. The narration was good - the narrator managed at least a dozen distinct voices well - but as another reviewer commented, her tone/delivery/emotions assigned to the lead female protagonist were not in keeping with the steely reserve one expects of a trained CIA agent. This book was simply awful, but it has at least spared me from having to listen to anything else from this author.

All the parts of a good story

I thought the narrator did a very good job differentiating between characters. Love mystery, romance and horses. I enjoy watching the movie in my head as I listen.

Please Stop Writing the Same Plot

The last Iris Johansen books I’ve read have been the same plot, with the setting changed, and different names for the characters. No more books from this author for me.

Chaos

Beautifully written and I couldn’t stop listening until the very end! Characters were new but well thought out and I felt like I was living the story with them.
