The President’s daughter...
The women determined to save her...
The man with the power to betray a nation...

Melissa Riley arrives at her sister’s isolated Virginia country home to find herself plunged into a deadly drama. There the renowned Dr. Jessica Riley is attempting to draw the daughter of the President of the United States out of a severe catatonic trauma. The last thing young Cassie Andreas saw was an organized team ruthlessly murder her nanny and the Secret Service agents sworn to protect her. But to free Cassie, Melissa and Jessica must trust a mysterious, charismatic man.

Michael Travis made his fortune in the international underworld. He risked everything to save Cassie during that terrible night of bloodshed. And he has entered into a secret bargain with the President. But is his show of concern all a treacherous charade? Melissa and Jessica have no choice but to accept Travis as their ally—and to follow a dangerous plan that will lead them into the world of a killer who’ll destroy anyone standing between him and the...Final Target.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Abdul Malik Abdul Karim | 2/18/2014

    " As I expected, this book is the typical book of American hero. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 krin | 2/8/2014

    " This book was a good thriller, but could have been better. I liked the character interaction, especially between Cassie and Melissa in the "tunnel" and between Travis and both Melissa and Jessica Riley. I didn't like that it took the author a long time to explain what Travis was involved in and why various people were after him. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Terri | 2/4/2014

    " I really like when there is an unexpected cross-over from another book: "Do you know I once babysat a wolf?" That was a big surprise and then helped me see how some of these books have recurring players and helped me to tie the stories together. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ralynn Wilcock | 1/31/2014

    " This book I liked it kept you on your toes and you had to just keep reading to find out what happened. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debbie Mcdonald | 1/17/2014

    " Good book! Turns out there are several books that are focused around the same statue. Will need to read the others, too! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Toni | 1/14/2014

    " It was a well structured story line. She covered all points of emotion equally and smoothly. And wrote a wonderful mystery as always. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andra | 12/28/2013

    " couldn't put it down. I then found out it is part of a trilogy regarding a sculpture called the wind dancer. I must find the other two books that go with it. I read this in a day... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 12/28/2013

    " This book was OK. Nothing fantastic. About a psychologist taking care of the President's daughter after an incident that left her in a catatonic state. The doctor has a sister that was in a similar situation, and her psychologist sister brought her out of it. Ever since then, she has had psychic dreams or connections with people that have been through the same traumatic experiences. There is an underlying "love" story with a handsome diamond thief. Overall, pretty predictable, boring at times. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pam | 12/26/2013

    " i enjoyed it, but i really didn't feel the chemistry between travis and melissa. i also wasn't really surprised at the ending like many people were. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 12/9/2013

    " Not as good as The Search but still a good thriller as long as you realize it is implausible. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pamela | 12/8/2013

    " Botched kidnapping of President's daughter - trauma, caused child to become catatonic - hard to describe - but good. Psychiatrist has experience with children like this - Diamonds - CIA - and the Dream Weaver Statue - all parts of fight to bring the little girl out of her tunnel. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gayle Kee | 11/11/2013

    " Very good. Fast paced, lots of twists and turns. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hope R | 10/20/2013

    " Enjoyed the pace and the development of the characters. Usually I don't follow extra-sensory type of plots, but this was done well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Courtney | 10/13/2013

    " I just started to read this book so i cant really say how much i like it and how much i like it but what i have read to far it is pretty good! Iris Johansen is a very uniqe author and yeah so u should read there books but yeah thats all that i can say for right now so yeah read it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Craig | 8/15/2012

    " I wonder who got paid for editing this book. While the story held some promise the writing was choppy and weak. Maybe I should have rated my last book, The Fountainhead, higher. Oh well variety is the spice of life. "
