Read an Excerpt

"Eric, you are such a kidder!" Jessica laughed coyly, tickling him under the chin.

"I'm not joking," Eric said, running his fingers up and down Jessica's bare neck. "In college, I was the best dancer in my class."

Jessica grimaced behind her fake smile. I don't care about you, I don't want to hear about your stupid life...the words ran over and over in her head like a mantra. All I want is to see Nick again. Eric's sleazy fingers were working their way down to the neckline of Jessica's T-shirt, stroking the skin underneath. Jessica chewed at the inside of her cheek so she wouldn't cry. When are you going to fall asleep?

Eric's hands wandered into unwelcome territory. Luckily for Jessica, a loud clap of thunder sounded and she jumped to her feet, getting as far across the cabin as she could.

"What's the matter?" Eric asked, looking irritated. "We were just getting cozy."

"I'm sorry," Jessica apologized. "I hate thunder...that one really caught me off guard."

Eric patted the empty seat next to him. "Come back here," he said seductively. "I'll make you forget all about it."

The thought of getting close to Eric again made Jessica violently nauseous. "I can't sit still--thunder makes me really nervous. I have a better idea. Why don't you teach me some of your dance moves? I'll run up on deck and get my radio so we can have some music..." Jessica dashed for the stairs without looking back to see if Eric was behind her. When she reached the deck, she slammed the door to the entrance shut and rammed a heavy deck chair under the doorknob.

Heavy winds and sheets of rain assaulted Jessica as she backedaway from the entrance. Seconds later, Eric's fists pounded against the doors, nearly breaking the flimsy wood from its hinges. "If I were you, Jessica, I'd run and hide!" he screamed at the top of his lungs. "Because I'm coming to get you!"

I LOVED this book, if you have not read this book, you need to. It si about when Nick and Jessica go out in a boat for a while, and when they are out, they pick up a man who says that his boat had caught on fire, and thta his girlfriend was trapped, so Nick goes to try to save the girl, and finds something very shoking, and Jessica in more trouble than ever. You have to read it if you never have, it is my FAVORIT book, e-mail me some time if you liked it to.

This was a really suspenseful book. I read this book at night and I kept thinking about it. Don't miss this thriller. It's one of the best SVU thrillers. Nick and Jessica plan a vacation on seas and discover a guy stranded in a boat. His name is Eric Griffin. He said there was someone on the boat and Nick goes there and finds a body. It was the case about a kidnapping he stumbled upon. Then Nick finds out that Eric was bad news. The rest is in the book so read it!
