Rico Chavez is the most terrifying type of killer there is. Not only does he kill without remorse, but he is intelligent, crafty, and incredibly charming. This deadly combination guarantees that nobody can refuse Rico, at least not for very long. So when Rico sets out to kill Elena Kyler, she soon finds that she has No One to Trust.

Elena is trained as an assassin, and is used to having to fend for herself. She does not need anybody or anything to help her survive except that which is located between her ears. When Rico sets his sights on her, however, Elena realizes that this is one problem she cannot solve alone. And at a time when anybody could be a danger to her, Elena seeks out a very dangerous man.

Sean Galen is no idiot. He knows that the only reason Elena is seeking his help is out of sheer desperation. This is not the calm, calculated decision of a trained assassin, but the frantic plea of a mother who wishes to protect her child. The life which Elena is seeking to save is not her own. Although she does not wish to die, Elena's true goal is to spare her son from being raised in a world where the only parent he has to take after is his psychopath of a father.

Iris Johansen, born in the USA in 1938, is a critically acclaimed writer of mystery and suspense. Having been writing novels since her children left for college, Johansen had seen 17 consecutive books reach the #1 bestseller spot as of November 2006. Her two children are also involved in the writing trade- her son as an Edgar award winner, and her daughter as her personal research assistant. Johansen currently resides in Georgia with her husband.

The #1 New York Times bestselling author of Final Target, Iris Johansen raises the stakes and the heart rate with this relentless new thriller that follows the harrowing trail of a ruthless killer on the hunt—and the woman who is determined to hunt him down.

He is the most terrifying of killers: ruthless, cunning, charismatic. And he has the means to get whatever he wants. And what Rico Chavez wants most is Elena Kyler—and he wants her dead. Trained as an assassin, Elena didn’t need anyone to survive. But now she finds herself on the run from one dangerous man and turning to another for help.

Sean Galen was a man without illusions. He knew it was only desperation that caused Elena to accept his help—a mother’s desperation to save her young son from a psychopath father who would raise their son in his own chilling image. And yet he was determined to get this woman who had never been able to trust anyone or anything in her whole life to accept him as her ally. But both Galen and Elena know that Chavez’s power and wealth mean there is no place they can be safe and no one they can trust—not even each other. Already Chavez’s assassins and connections to those in the highest positions of power have turned this into a war with no rules.

With two shocking acts of brutal violence, Chavez shows he will stop at nothing and that nothing will stop him. Soon a trail of horrifying murders will follow Galen and Elena across the country to a last stand and a shattering showdown. For Chavez is a master of control and he wants more than just to take Elena’s life. He wants her alive long enough to see him destroy every reason she has for living. He wants her to turn against everything and everyone she ever believed in. He wants her to commit the ultimate act of betrayal. And by the time he is through, he wants her to beg him to take the only thing she'll have left to give: her life.

    " Remarkable similar plotline to many of Johanson novels: Despartely in need women, meets hansome, viril man that's saves her and they live happily everafter...a fun read...lots of action...I am entertained by the book, but not floored by it...just what one would expect...save the woman and find love "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristen | 2/18/2014

    " This is a fascinating read from Iris Johansen. A riveting story about being in peril and finding someone you can trust along the way for the Eve Duncan series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kylene Nickerson | 2/2/2014

    " Good quick read like all her books. Love the adventure story, could do without the romance, but her books are good enough that I can tolerate that part. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 1/30/2014

    " Although this barely classifies as an Eve Duncan book, I'll accept it since it centers around one of my favorite characters, Sean Galen. The plot was quick and intriguing, although some repetition is surfacing...hopefully the rest of the series is more unique. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anandi | 1/13/2014

    " I enjoyed this book a lot. It has a strong female lead. it has some content that may be a bit too much for a younger reader but you are warned. It can be a bit violent & other stuff but it's enjoyable. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sam | 12/10/2013

    " This was an okay book, and definately not one of Johansen's stronger books. There were no real surprizes and it was predicable, but I did enjoy it enough while listening to it in the car back and forth from work and I really liked the Reader for this book, I believe it was Kate Burton. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beckey | 11/21/2013

    " Johansen books are hits or miss with me, some are better than other... This one wasn't one of her better books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Spook Harrison | 10/8/2013

    " Pretty good, and I liked it more than the last Johansen book I read. The violence is pretty far removed from my realm of experience, but written very well. The characters and their motivations were believable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elli Jo | 7/9/2013

    " Very good book that mixes suspense, romance, and action. She's running from a drug-lord, while falling in love with an FBA Agent. It's a typical story-line with amazing detail and twists. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mckenna | 7/7/2013

    " It was a little confusing at first, but then I enjoyed the story of a mom, a previous gorilla fighter, who was now trying to protect her son from his drug lord father. She has to trust several people from the FBI, which proves to be quite challenging. Good story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Yessy Caban | 5/15/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carrie | 12/23/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laurie | 11/16/2012

    " Ended up reading this book over but it was a refresher for me. I love Iris's books because her female characters are strong and don't depend on men for everything. This story is about a woman and her son who are on the run from the boys father. It is full of adventure and contains a bit of romance. "

    " Iris Johansen never seems to fail me. This was yet another one of her books I couldn't put down. I found myself thinking of how this would be in a movie and who could play the main character. If you like fast paced the I recommend this book. "

    " Great insight into the mind of someone who has lived on her own and been able to trust only her instincts. Loved ones betray, but she still loves them. The suspense ebbs and flows and keeps you reading. Ms Johansen is superb writer. The research she does comes through in her books.
    "
