Publisher Description

While bicycling in the foothills of Santa Barbara, Jesse Blackburn and his friend Isaac are struck down by a hit-and-run driver. Isaac is killed, but Jesse survives. Now he wants revenge, and his fiancée, Evan Delaney, wants justice. Neither is simple. Evan and Jesse underestimate the power of the person with whom they’re dealing, and of the dark places where retribution will take them. As witnesses to the crime start dying one by one, it is apparent that no one can stop the killer—least of all Evan, who’s next on his list.

“A harrowing (and all too timely) story of corporate greed and evildoing in quirky Southern California.” —Jeffery Deaver

“A rattling good read with an unexpected twist.” —The Sunday Telegraph

"I am such a fan of Meg Gardiner and her Evan Delaney books! This is the second of the series. Evan's boyfriend Jesse was injured by a hit and run driver and his friend killed and now it seems the killer is back. Some great twists and turns in the book. I'd rate it 4.2 stars. "

    " This book is non-stop action. Evan Delaney's fiancee is wheelchair bound after he was hit by a car while biking in the mountains with his friend. It turns out that it wasn't an accident, it is to cover-up some shady business dealings at a large tech firm. I am a fan of action, so I loved the pace of the book, and I even took an extra twenty minutes off the clock at work today to finis it. This book introduced Jax and Tim a hit man and woman team, and I liked them better than any of the other new characters. Perhaps there will be s spin-off series. And when Meg Gardiner writes a character who is a bitch she goes all out. I liked the book a lot. "
