After surviving a horrific attack by masked gunmen, Katharine Lawrence awakens in the hospital – with an unfamiliar face staring back at her in the mirror.

But when Katharine’s instincts tell her to run for her life, Dan becomes her newfound protector. And Katharine has no one else to turn to when they’re drawn into a shadowy world of conspiracy, where nothing and no one are what they seem.

Review: Damn near ‘Unputdownable’!

Right from the prologue and the first chapter, Robards sucked me right into the story and wouldn’t let go!

While the story can be confusing at times, I think there’s a reason for that confusion, and it all has to do with Katharine, the heroine of the story. The reader is confused because she is confused, and you’re drawn into the goings on surrounding her.

Katharine isn’t who she’s made to believe she is – and we get the why of that later. Dan isn’t who is supposed to be either. The confusion and suspense are thick in this book, and I enjoyed that thoroughly. As the story progresses, you finally begin to understand who Katharine is, and why, and what Dan has to do with it.

Twist upon twist make this novel an unbelievable and damn near unputdownable page-turner that will have you going on well past the time you should be in bed sleeping. Action scenes are great, suspense thick enough you can slice it with a knife, and lots of electricity between Katharine and Dan to get you hot under the collar. Excellent read!
