Police Lieutenant Phoebe MacNamara found her calling at an early age, when a violently unstable man broke into her family’s home, trapping and terrorizing them for hours. Now she’s Savannah’s top hostage negotiator, who puts her life on the line every day to defuse powder-keg situations. Phoebe knows when to reach out and when to pull back - and when to jump in and take action, even if it means risking everything. It’s satisfying work - and sometimes those skills come in handy at home when Phoebe deals with her agoraphobic mother, still traumatized by the break-in after all these years, and her precocious seven-year-old daughter, Carly. It’s exactly that heady combination of steely courage and sensitivity that first attracts Duncan Swift to Phoebe. After watching her talk one of his employees off a roof ledge, he is committed to keeping this intriguing, take-charge woman in his life. Phoebe’s used to working solo, but she’s finding that no amount of negotiation can keep Duncan at arm’s length. When she’s grabbed by a man who throws a hood over her head and brutally assaults her - in her own precinct house - Phoebe can’t help being deeply shaken. And when threatening messages appear on her doorstep, she’s not just alarmed but frustrated. How do you go face-to-face with an opponent who refuses to look you in the eye? Now, with Duncan backing her up every step of the way, she must establish contact with the faceless tormentor who is determined to make her a hostage to fear - before she becomes the final showdown.

    " I love Nora Roberts and this book was a great mystery. Something was always happening to keep you interested in the book! Great, fast read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mj | 2/14/2014

    " The first Nora Roberts book I read, and this was the one that got me hooked, very good story, believable characters and kept me guessing most of the way through as to who the killer was, a few surprises that I didn't expect too. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sneha | 2/14/2014

    " very different from the usual nora roberts books, this one actually had a decent plot, and fast-paced narrative. it was so refreshing to read something by her like this... in fact i guess its unpredictability alone is why i'd rate it so high... which isn't saying much about the book in itself.. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 farmwifetwo | 2/11/2014

    " Hadn't marked this one as read and I thought I'd read most of the last 5yrs or so stand alones. I got it from the library and yes I have read it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vanessa | 2/8/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julia | 2/6/2014

    " I am really enjoying the suspenseful Nora Roberts books! She has wonderful plot development and characterization. This was not one of her best but I did enjoy it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kerri | 1/17/2014

    " Great, Quick Read! My sister and I both read this book at the same time and we both loved it! Great love story but also incorporates suspense. Would definitely reccomend! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Betty | 12/23/2013

    " I listened to this on tape as I rode to Texas with my best friend, Alicia. 12 tapes and it was way too long and a bit boring. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jc | 12/8/2013

    " Mediocre - nothing really stands out about this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mel | 12/1/2013

    " Another great one- it was exciting 'til the end and kept you guessing. Nora Roberts is great at the 'romantic-suspense' genre!! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Laura Taylor | 11/16/2013

    " Lame o book. Couldn't even finish reading it. Complete waste of my time, money and brain power! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kay Webb | 11/3/2013

    " One of her best, IMO. Phoebe has many characteristics in common with Eve Dallas, probably because they are both police officers; I like both women. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Candace | 6/22/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bonnie Matoren | 2/3/2012

    " This was the first Nora Roberts book that I've read and I can't wait to read more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suzie | 11/14/2011

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Emily | 9/12/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca | 7/2/2011

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennifer | 5/6/2011

    " Normally I love Nora Roberts, but this was only ok for me. A little too hard core with the sexual assault scene for what I was anticipating to be a good vacation read and the ending felt really rushed. I think I may stick to her non-thriller/suspense things from here on out. "
