The Barnes & Noble Review
New York Times–bestselling author Karen Robards delivers an action-packed, adrenaline-laced thriller in this story of Sarah Mason, forced to relive her worst nightmare -- the kidnapping of her young daughter, Lexie, seven years ago. It starts when Sarah, who works in the county prosecutor's office, gets a call for help from a young child who sounds just like her daughter Lexie when she was five. Is Sarah finally cracking up? The only one to believe her story about the call is her best friend, Jake Hogan, a P.I. Their investigation into the call and what really happened to Lexie unearths some dangerous secrets in the town and kicks off a passionate romance between Jake and Sarah. As usual, Robards knows just how to keep the heart pounding and the pages turning. Ginger Curwen
Publishers Weekly
Bestseller Robards (Superstition) opens her latest romantic thriller with a bang by placing her heroine, assistant district attorney Sarah Mason of Beaufort County, S.C., in the midst of a convenience store robbery gone wrong. A cashier is shot to death, Mason is wounded in the head and a young girl, who was hiding in the store during the gunplay, vanishes. Mason, who has thrown herself into her work with a vengeance since the disappearance of her five-year-old daughter, Lexie, 10 years earlier, becomes obsessed with finding the missing girl. The action rarely lets up, except for the many sexually charged scenes devoted to Mason's initially platonic relationship with PI Jake Hogan, "the closest thing to family" she has left, who worked as a detective on Lexie's case and who routinely comes to her rescue during this new case. The plot, with its suggestions that the holdup was not a random act and eerie phone calls apparently from a Lexie who hasn't aged, will keep readers turning the pages. Author tour. (Apr.)
