Twenty-two-year-old Jeanine Fournier had looks to die for, a handsome police-officer husband, and a carefree life in Key West. When she learnt that she was pregnant with their first child, her life was complete. Jeanine's happiness was then shattered when she unearthed a terrible secret that caused her to run for her life and change her identity. Now, years later, an even greater horror leads her to risk everything she's earned - a secure life in New York City, a prosperous career as a lawyer, even the daughter she loves - to return to Florida and confront the murderous evil she fled. In a story of wrenching suspense, James Patterson gives us his most head-spinning, action filled story yet - a Hitchcock-like blend of unquenchable drama and pleasure.

Publishers Weekly Review

In Patterson and Ledwidge's bestselling thriller, lawyer Nina Bloom seems to have the perfect life in New York. And she's willing to lie to anyone and everyone to keep it that way and protect herself and her daughter from her dark past. But when an innocent man is accused of murder, Bloom is forced to confront the life she thought she'd left behind. Elaina Erika Davis's narration is crisp and well paced; her tempo accelerates during the book's many suspenseful moments, adding impact to this literary thrill ride. Additionally, Davis provides complex vocal interpretations of the main and supporting characters. Her rendition of Nina adds maturity, sophistication, and emotional depth to the character. And Davis's choice of a chipper-almost jolly-Boston accent for the book's villain makes him all the more monstrous. A Little, Brown hardcover. (June) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Booklist Review

This latest crime thriller from the tireless Patterson and frequent collaborator Ledwidge has all the ingredients of a page-turning, summer beach read: bite-size chapters, the irresistibly colorful backdrop of Key West, and a heroine hiding a tortured past. She is a carefree college student soaking up the Florida island's party atmosphere during spring break when her life takes a disastrous turn. After stealing her cheating boyfriend's Camaro in a jealous rage, she hits and kills a wayward drunk. Luckily, the officer on the scene, Peter Fournier, not only hides the body but in short order becomes her adoring husband. Yet her troubles begin anew when she learns that Peter murdered his first wife. Eighteen years later, after she fled and reinvented herself as Nina Bloom, becoming a successful Manhattan attorney, she is forced to confront her tainted past. Including an intriguing, intertwined story involving Nina's efforts to free an innocent man on death row, Patterson and Ledwidge's tale is fun, if ultimately forgettable. . HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: The latest from record-breaking best-seller Patterson and company (who seem to produce a book every two weeks) will keep the cash registers clinging.--Hays, Car.
