Katharine Lawrence has no idea what hit her. The attack came out of nowhere. Only hours earlier she had been enjoying a girls-only weekend with an old college friend. Now she finds herself lying bound and gagged on her kitchen floor, staring with terrified eyes at her friend Lisa while two masked gunmen search her house for—what? She doesn’t know. She knows only that, unless they can escape, whatever it is they are searching for could end up getting both her and Lisa killed.

But Katharine’s nightmare is just beginning. When she awakens in the hospital, her nose crushed, her body battered, her brain tells her that things aren’t right—and it’s not the attack that’s disorienting her. She doesn’t recognize herself when she looks in the mirror: her slim body, her manicured hands, her blond bob. And the smiling, handsome doctor at her bedside—Dr. Dan Howard—is familiar, but in a totally unfamiliar way. Perhaps the trauma of the attempt on her life has given her some kind of weird amnesia. She’s twenty-nine, the special assistant to the head of the CIA, and she’s lucky to be alive. She also knows she can trust no one.

Acting on instinct, Katharine runs for her life, with Dan, her newfound protector, at her side. By turns grateful and unnerved by his presence, and unable to shake a feeling of profound dread, she allows him to spirit her to a secluded safe house. Instead of finding a haven, they stumble into a tangled web of government conspiracy, and Katharine is left confused, frightened, and desperate to uncover the truth. As the pair is drawn further into this shadowy world where almost nothing is as it seems, as fear gives way to a firestorm of attraction, the cat-and-mouse game grows more deadly, and soon both their lives are at stake.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heidi | 2/20/2014

    " I don't mind being left in the dark as a reader but in this novel the reader is left in the pitch black for so long it gets annoying. I did like the way everything finally tied together and there was lots of action, suspense and some romance. "

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

    " Kind of confusing, really good twists and turns. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Roxanne | 2/7/2014

    " Very poorly written both lingusticly and the story line. Would not recommend. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ariel | 1/28/2014

    " I liked this book , but it was weird and it deff had some twists and turns in there that I wasn't expecting . In the end I wasn't really satisified with the way everything turned out though . It was just okay for me . "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trish Ruthven | 1/17/2014

    " I wouldn't say this is "unputdownable", but it was okay. Parts of the story were just a little bit farfetched and not quite believeable. But all in all, a half decent read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rachel | 1/1/2014

    " This book was just a mess. The plot was completely over the top and made NO sense at all! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Charla | 12/27/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alex | 12/23/2013

    " I read this last summer over a few of my lunch breaks at work. It was interesting, but mostly because you wanted to know what happened to her. Once that was revealed, the story fell a little flat. But it was still pretty good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Audra | 12/21/2013

    " Great read....I was hooked all the way through. The end was not the best though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Delores | 12/1/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Celine | 11/28/2013

    " Liked the book--I never try to solve the story line which makes for me a more enjoyable read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Nathalie | 11/13/2013

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Janalynn | 5/27/2013

    " Disturbing in its details and confusing in its conclusion. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lorie | 3/16/2013

    " A fun and quick read. Some of the twists were pretty obvious and I figured them out early on. There were a few, however, that had me guessing right to the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Clare | 3/9/2013

    " Another excellent read, kept me guessing straight from the beginning and have to say it had a few twists that I didnt see coming. Need to get to the library to get some more of her books as I cant get enough of them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 7/26/2011

    " A few loose ends but not as bad as some of the scathing reviews I read. Kept me interested - different type of plot than the norm. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Dee | 5/5/2011

    " This book had no logical flow, it was a mechanical read, bland story. Can anyone help with the title of this book? Why was it called Obsession, the story does not fit the title at all in my opinion. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Roxanne | 4/15/2011

    " Very poorly written both lingusticly and the story line. Would not recommend. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kari | 1/25/2011

    " Great book. It had some surprises that I didn't expect. I loved the characters. This is why I love Karen Robards! Also, I love Joyce Bean's voice. She is an excellent reader! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peggy | 12/10/2010

    " too wordy - great story - good characters but too wordy - using words that surprise me such as gesticulating (what?)

    "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Theresa | 11/8/2010

    " Very wordy. So many repeated phrases and wordy discriptions of the main character's thoughts. Still I couldn't stop reading it until I found out what was going on. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shyloh | 8/9/2010

    " While I still enjoyed KR's writing style, this book left alot to be desired, and it was so unbelievable. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Carole | 7/29/2010

    " This was a very poorly written book. It was suspenseful but that is about all I can say was good about it. The author's use of descriptions, similes, etc were all very trite and pretty ridiculous. Her main character was not very believable. The only thing good about it was it was a fast read "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Anna | 7/7/2010

    " Kind of implausible and not a page-turner unless you're procrastinating from grad school and suffering insomnia. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rachel | 6/29/2010

    " This book was just a mess. The plot was completely over the top and made NO sense at all! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharal | 2/8/2010

    " Had to work a little bit to stay with the story initially due to a lot of various plots but when the story starts to come together, I found I had to find out what was going to happen. Several surprises and one really big one at the end that made sticking with the story worth it for me. "
