In Patricia Lewin's novel of breathless suspense, a shaken CIA officer returns to the field, drawn not by duties but by the chance to save a man's life . . . and to meet the father she hasn't seen in years.
Though Erin Baker has left the CIA, the people who once directed her career tap her to penetrate a medical aid group that may be hiding a sinister purpose. In Cuba, the organization's head doctor is Emilio Diaz, Erin's estranged father. Erin has the skills and a perfect cover to penetrate Castro's shadow world. She also has another reason to take the assignment. An ex-mentor, previously on the case, has vanished somewhere in Cuba.
Full of emotional landmines, this mission comes at a time when Erin's life is at a crossroads. Alec Donovan, a colleague at the FBI, is pushing for more than friendship, and he wants Erin out of the Agency's clutches. But Erin is already in-and though wanting to trust her charismatic father, she suspects that a dark plot is unfolding. Not knowing whom to trust or whom to believe, Erin fights her way deeper undercover until she is ultimately forced to make life-and-death decisions that will affect nations around the world.

All of Lewin's books are remarkable , believable plots; very fast paced; mixing high tension, edge of your seat mystery, plus a love story. keeps Patricia Lewin's books on my radar. I wish she would write more books!
Former CIA agent Erin Baker wants nothing more than to forget her last case, which involved her own family. However, only Erin can go undercover and infiltrate a medical aid group that may be hiding a darker purpose. Erin would have said no in a heartbeat, except that the organization's head doctor is her estranged father. Erin has not seen her father since she was small. But her father is not the only thing tempting Erin to accept the case. Someone Erin knows has disappeared while on the case before her. So off to Cuba she goes ... much to Alec Donovan's dismay. ............................. ***** Once I began I wanted not interruptions. This thriller will keep you on your toes, if not on the edge of your seat. LOVED IT! *****
After completing a case that ends in tragedy, FBI Crimes Against Children expert Alec Donovan goes to Miami instead of reporting in because he needs solace and only the woman he loves Dr. Erin Baker can provide t. However, before they can share dinner, CIA operative Bill Jensen arrives asking Erin to help the Company whom she used to work for by offering her the only carrot she would accept............... Erin is to go to Cuba where her biological father Dr. Emilio Diaz works for Doctors for Life. She has not seen him in years since he vanished from her and her mother¿s lives. While visiting her dad under the guise of a teacher (not a stretch as she is a professor), Erin will try to learn what happened to Agent Joe Roarke. Though angry at her dad, Erin goes to Cuba and finds fatherly love, but something much more sinister too................... OUT OF TIME, the sequel to OUT OF REACH is a terrific romantic suspense tale with much of the emphasis on the action and relationship between father and daughter the love subplot between Alec and Erin takes a back seat to a degree, but never vanishes from the minds of the audience. The story line is fast-paced as Erin seemingly reconciles with her father who explains why he disappeared even as she looks into what happened to Joe while an anxious Alec is prepared to leave Florida as a one man cavalry. Fans will appreciate this strong thriller..................... Harriet Klausner
