Publisher's Summary

In this gripping thriller, an ex-agent on the run from her former employers must take one more case to clear her name and save her life.

She used to work for the US government, but very few people ever knew that. An expert in her field, she was one of the darkest secrets of an agency so clandestine it doesn't even have a name. And when they decided she was a liability, they came for her without warning.

Now she rarely stays in the same place or uses the same name for long. They've killed the only other person she trusted, but something she knows still poses a threat. They want her dead, and soon.

When her former handler offers her a way out, she realizes it's her only chance to erase the giant target on her back. But it means taking one last job for her ex-employers. To her horror, the information she acquires only makes her situation more dangerous.

Resolving to meet the threat head-on, she prepares for the toughest fight of her life but finds herself falling for a man who can only complicate her likelihood of survival. As she sees her choices being rapidly whittled down, she must apply her unique talents in ways she never dreamed of.

In this tautly plotted novel, Meyer creates a fierce and fascinating new heroine with a very specialized skill set. And she shows once again why she's one of the world's best-selling authors.

What the critics say

"Even with Archer's outstanding portrayal of Alex, secondary characters Kevin and Val still steal all their scenes, thanks to Archer's memorable voices. Pack your go bag and enter Meyer's breathless romantic suspense." ( AudioFile)

Absolutely impressive!

I didn't know what to expect after reading the Twilight trilogy at my daughter's urging, and then realizing that this was the same author. that of course was years ago...
I am thoroughly impressed.
the chemist is fast-paced and has twists and chuckles with very realistic reactions from strong characters.
i can't wait to buy it for my daughter and make us even...

Hard to get into, but when I did, I couldn't stop!

I found the reader pretty boring at first. Also found the beginning of the book hard to get into. Probably around chapter 11 or so it got better and so did the reader.

don't waste your time

Ahhhh. Ce livre aurait pu (et dû) prendre une 20e de pages. Supposée être smart, on devine mille ans avant elle qui elle torture, et ensuite c'est un livre romance pour preado sans fin. je ne suis pas capable de ne pas finir un livre donc j'ai passé 12h à flipper des yeux
