Publisher's Summary

When she becomes a madman's target, Eve Duncan's daughter Jane must team up with longtime love interest Seth Caleb in this suspense novel from the number one best-selling author of Smokescreen.

Forensic sculptor Eve Duncan and ex-Navy Seal Joe Quinn are about to give Seth Caleb their trust for the most important duty of his life: keeping their daughter, Jane, safe at any cost. Her talent as an artist has caught the attention of a brilliant psychopath with a violent past.

Seth, Jane's strongest ally and fiercest protector, is determined to keep her out of danger, but that becomes nearly impossible when Jane is forced to take matters into her own hands and confronts the madman who wants her for himself...and wants Seth Caleb dead.

As Jane and Seth chase down their bloodthirsty adversary, they finally commit to a life together - in the culmination of the epic love story that fans have been eagerly anticipating. As the two come face to face with danger, one thing is made clear: It will take both of them working together to confront and defeat this evil.

Seth and Jane together

I liked that Seth and Jane finally get to work on the same side. I didn't like what happened to the child, though. A lot of graphic detail. Elizabeth Rodgers did a great narration.

Child torture, excellent narrator

I have read all of the Eve Duncan and Jane McGuire books, but I think I am done. Although the narrator was excellent, she couldn’t make up for the child torture and blood. I dragged myself through the book because I cared what happened with Jane and Seth. Lisa didn’t seem to have any personality except to please Seth, despite the places she had been and full life she’s lead. I guessed what was coming at the climax of the story.
