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

    " Second book in the series.Enjoyed this one better than China Lake.Can see this turning into a really good series.Hopefully I have the next one on my tbr. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan | 1/25/2014

    " Good story line, very feasible this could happen, plenty of action intrigue, put not particularly well written, jerky in places especially at the beginning became smoother as story progressed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebekkila | 1/24/2014

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary Fitzsimons | 1/16/2014

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linda | 1/4/2014

    " Superbly written chick-lit mystery, sprinkled with humor and nail-biting suspense. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debra | 12/7/2013

    " Stephen King recommended author and book. King says this about the Evan Delaney series: "Simply put, the finest crime suspense series I've come across in the last twenty years...your basic can't-put-'em-down thrill rides." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marcus Lynn | 12/3/2013

    " Gardiner's 2nd book in her Evan Delaney series was good...but not as great as the first. She has perfected the use of "deus ex machina." I am looking forward to reading further books in the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Simeonberesford | 11/13/2013

    " This follow up to China Lake Was an enjoyable read with plenty of tense moments. But it was not as good as its predessor. The humour seemed to detract from its beleivabilty as did an over complex plot.[return]I do however still expect to enjoy the next. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jon | 11/7/2013

    " Gardiner's second book in the Evan Delaney series is far superior to "China Lake." The first half is so good, I thought I might have found a classic. Unfortunately, the plot gets too convoluted in the second half with way too many characters. But still an enjoyable read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marybeth Kobland | 10/11/2013

    " I loved this book. I really like this author. A story about revenge, very fast paced, keeps you guessing until the end about who really was the guilty party for running down Evan's fiance and killing his best friend. I will definitely keep reading her books, looking for more. "
