Dawson Scott is a well-respected journalist recently returned from Afghanistan. Haunted by everything he experienced, he's privately suffering from battle fatigue which is a threat to every aspect of his life. But then he gets a call from a source within the FBI. A new development has come to light in a story that began 40 years ago. It could be the BIG story of Dawson's career one in which he has a vested interest.

Soon, Dawson is covering the disappearance and presumed murder of former Marine Jeremy Wesson, the biological son of the pair of terrorists who remain on the FBI's Most Wanted list. As Dawson delves into the story, he finds himself developing feelings for Wesson's ex-wife, Amelia, and her two young sons. But when Amelia's nanny turns up dead, the case takes a stunning new turn, with Dawson himself becoming a suspect. Haunted by his own demons, Dawson takes up the chase for the notorious outlaws. . .and the secret, startling truth about himself.

    The plot was different from Brown's other books, but that's why I liked it. The twist and turns had me reading into the wee hours of the morn.

  • Enjoyable

    By Tim Williford
    I enjoyed that this book has twists all through it. It felt like I had reached the end by the middle because it seemed that I knew all of the secrets. Because of this it didn't leave much room for a surprise ending, which I missed. But overall this was a good read.
  • Great book!

    I admit this book started a little slow for me but it made up for it later on. I loved it!

    Been reading Sandra Brown novels for a long time. This is probably one of my least favorites. Very implausible story and characters. Kept reading with hopes of improvement but it only got more ludicrous. Hope the next book is better.
