Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Persephone’s Fugitive is book 2 in The Cayman Island Trilogy by Dianna Benson. I highly recommend reading the Cayman Island Trilogy books in order to get the full impact of the character development. It is worth it. Persephone’s Fugitive is gripping, compelling and intense. In Persephone’s Fugitive we have James Keegan, a cocaine addict who would rather die than spend the rest of his life in prison. His escape plan was playing out just like he expected until the boat, Persephone, was late. Sara Dyer is a paramedic who becomes his human shield as he plans his escape during a stand-off with the Royal Cayman Island police. Once they are on the boat, Sara realizes she is not the only hostage, but can she trust the other hostage? Benson’s experience as an EMT is evident in the detail in the scenes. If you are looking for an awesome writer. I highly recommend Dianna Benson. Her books will appeal to fans of Dani Petry, Irene Hannon, and Dee Henderson.
