Lots of characters to keep track of while trying to figure out who's doing all the killing. Fifteen years ago, Tom O'Brien was convicted of killing his wife and her lover. Now he's a fugitive back in Sacramento trying to prove his innocence and reconnect with his grown daughter. FBI agent Mitch Bianchi befriends Claire O'Brien under false pretenses to try to recapture her dad. A law student who was reviewing Tom's original case finds errors in the proceedings and ends up dead. Claire and the FBI try to follow the law student's leads and the twisted plot eventually unravels. Pay attention, lots to keep track of. Not great, not too bad.

Playing Dead is the final book in the Prison Break Trilogy but in my opinion it is a stand alone book. There are quite a few references to things that occurred in the previous books but not so much that I was lost since I hadn¿t read the previous books.

Fifteen years ago, Claire O¿Brien¿s mother and her lover were brutally murdered. Claire¿s father Tom, a police officer, was convicted of the crime and sentenced to death. During a recent earthquake Tom, along with other fugitives, escaped from San Quentin and now in addition to hunting down and turning in his fellow escapees Tom has to prove his innocence to the one person that matters¿his daughter, Claire.

Claire never believed his claim of innocence and she did her best to shut him out of her life. She sees the world as right and wrong and doesn¿t have any interest in listening to her father¿s pleas until she learns that the one person who believed Tom was murdered as he got too close to the truth behind the murders.

FBI agent Mitch Bianchi also has a stake in finding out the truth. He¿s befriended Claire under false pretenses and has fallen in love with her. As Claire starts investigating the crime, Mitch can¿t share with her who he really is and all he can do is hope to keep her safe while finding out what really happened fifteen years ago.

This was a fast paced read with a lot of twists and turns. I loved the way the truth slowly weaves together all the side characters in the story. The killer¿s identity was a complete surprise to me which rarely happens with most suspense books I read. I loved the writing style and I definitely want to go back and read books one and two. I highly recommend this to all romantic suspense lovers.

This book was much better than Allison Brennan's previous book. The plot was great and was actually "on the edge" reading. I read it in two days and was pleased she had returned to her original writing style. I will continue to purchase her books.

Fast paced, thrilling, edge of your seat suspense. Keeps you guessing till the end. You'll be hard pressed to figure out the killer....you just won't see it coming.

For fifteen years, Claire O'Brien has believed that calling her dad to tell him about an indiscretion she witnessed caused her father to murder her mother and a lover. Now, Tom O'Brien has escaped from prison after an earthquake and has been on the run for several months. When he contacts her and tries to plead his innocence, Claire begins to start looking at all that happened, as well as current events that seem to have a connection to her family's past, and wondering if her father is really guilty.  Mitch Bianchi, who has been dating Claire and really cares for her, is living a lie. Claire believes he is a writer, while he is truly an FBI agent looking for her escaped father. Although Mitch knows his time with Claire is going to end very badly, he can't keep from falling even deeper for her. Mitch has been reviewing Tom O'Brien's case due to assistance Tom provided after the earthquake in capturing some of the very dangerous inmates who escaped. Mitch has begun to believe in Tom's innocence. Meanwhile, a killer has hidden in plain sight for decades, and he is not finished.  I enjoyed this book by Allison Brennan, the last of her Prison Break trilogy. I loved seeing quite a few familiar characters, and I really liked both of the main characters, Claire O'Brien and Mitch Bianchi. The book held me engrossed, and I was kept guessing, trying to tie all of the threads of the story together. The plot was fairly complicated, much more so than what I expected at the beginning of the book, and I found reading it a very enjoyable experience.
