He must control her or destroy her....

For as long as she can remember, successful young physician Megan Blair has tried to silence the voices in her head—voices that bring her to the edge of madness and terror. Megan possesses psychic powers that have been dormant for years, hidden deep in the past she’s tried so desperately to forget. But now everything has come to a boiling point—someone is trying to kill her, and others are trying to use her, including the deadly and seductive Neal Grady. Shocking secrets about her life and her mother’s death bombard her as she fights to take control of her heritage and save herself and everything she believes in. Grady holds the key to understanding her future, a future in which Megan’s life will never be the same.

If she survives to have a future.

    " Really? Supernatural twist. Not good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelly Moran | 2/16/2014

    " a stellar read. very unique. always loved her. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dlora | 2/15/2014

    " Thriller story with elements of the supernatural. A group of secret psychics, all with different abilities, are racing to keep Molino, a drug lord bad guy (with no redeeming qualities unless it is his obsessive love for his dead son) from (1) finding the Ledger that records the family tree of a strong-strain of psychics and (2) killing Megan Blair to satisfy his lust for revenge (her mother "killed" Moino's son). The psychic angle intrigued me, since I'm a science fiction fan. Neal Grady, can "control" minds by suggestion. Megan Blair learns that she can "hear" the voices of dead people. Renata is a "finder." Kind of a gritty story with murder and rape and child prostitution as part of the plot movement so be prepared for some ugliness, though it's not as graphic as some books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ellen | 2/15/2014

    " Dr Megan Blair -- Neal Grady -- Phillip -- Renata -- Harley -- Venanable "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 M | 1/30/2014

    " Haven't read an Iris book for a while. Like many prolific authors, she's getting too predictable. Still a fast, fun read but I'll be leaving her with James Patterson, Robin Cook and others. Fun to pick up once in a while, but no more reading every title that comes out. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maria | 1/19/2014

    " Megan has voices in her head that brings her to the point of madness and terror, the voices have been quite for awhile, now some one is out to kill her nad others want to used her and the voices are back. What will her future turn out to be? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Darlene Wilson | 1/15/2014

    " Quite interesting book on paranormal "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lorie | 1/5/2014

    " This was not my favorite of Johansen's books. In fact, it may be my least favorite of all of her recent thrillers. The psychic/paranormal part seemed too contrived and unnatural. The thriller and suspense part was very predictable and not very thrilling and suspenseful. The characters were pretty one-dimensional, especially considering the depth she usually gives her books. It wasn't terrible, but overall, a bit of a disappointment from one of my favorite authors. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Natalie | 1/4/2014

    " What a stupid book! People write this nonsense? I listened to this on CD and found it very childlike. I kept reaching over subconsciously to change the channel. Not recommended. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Christy | 1/3/2014

    " Really interesting premise, but like most of her books, could be better written "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donna Mcnab | 12/31/2013

    " This was another page turner, thriller, with some sex & love thrown in (not expicit sex, just sexual tension). It was a fun read and carried on the stories of characters found in previous books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lori | 12/22/2013

    " Although this one was a recent release that wasn't an Eve Duncan Thriller, it was still amazing. In the end though it really does have something to do with Eve Duncan after all. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Deb | 12/18/2013

    " "Just-okay" suspense novel filled with corny dialogue that must have had the word, "damn" or "dammit" on every other page (seriously). No big surprises. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ruth | 12/8/2013

    " I heard this on CD when I was driving to NJ. When I read the back of the box, I wondered if I was going to like it. It turned out to be interesting enough that I wanted to see what was going to happen at the end. You might like to listen while driving around, Em. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sierra | 11/27/2013

    " This was not my style of writing at all. There wasn't a lot of substance when it came to description and character development. But the story itself was interesting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jacquie | 4/7/2013

    " great read. great story "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janice | 3/5/2013

    " Fast relaxing type read "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tommy | 3/1/2013

    " This was a typical Iris Johansen story - damsel in distress w/ irresistable man to the rescue. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caroline | 1/30/2013

    " This book grew on me as I read it. (test review) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amy | 1/1/2013

    " This was an OK book. Simple enough read, so it went fast. I find the subject matter (superhuman powers) entertaining, but the dialogue seemed like the author was trying to hard. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kyle Caruthers | 6/13/2012

    " decent enough. Probably won't read it again, but I might just seek out other books by Johansen. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Quinn | 4/14/2012

    " What a stinker this book is. This is the third Iris Johansen book that I have read and they have all been stinkers. I know she is a popular author but the books I have read have been terrible. I wont read another Johansen book. I hate it when authors write for quantity and not quality. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maribel reyes | 4/7/2012

    " I loved this book! That is to say that I love all iris Johansen books! I can honestly say that I think I have read almost all of them! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Camille Robison | 11/23/2011

    " I like this author although sometimes her dialouge can get a little cheesy. This book could have ended a bit more dramatically I thought. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Denise | 9/27/2011

    " I have a hard time putting it down! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patricia | 5/19/2011

    " Wanted to read this book after reading about Megan Blair in a Eve Duncan thriller. This introduction to Megan is quite interesting. Makes me wonder if we will see Megan in another book by this author. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Monet310 | 5/2/2011

    " This is the first book I've read by Iris Johansen and it was such a joy to read. I'll definitely be reading more of her books. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jaroslav | 3/20/2011

    " Now, I never read a book so fast....never....and I did it just because it was unbelievably stupid, borring and full of crap...just can`t imagine how on earth it could became a bestseller.... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Steve | 3/14/2011

    " Too much romance but an interesting plot premise. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jackie | 2/16/2011

    " This book is a page turner, and it was interesting because it involves a single mother and a daughter. I was a single mother for 11 years, that is why I brought this book. It really is the best thriller ever. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly | 2/16/2011

    " I was surprised that this captured me like it did. I've since read another of her books, and bought two more on my Kindle. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Quinn | 1/3/2011

    " What a stinker this book is. This is the third Iris Johansen book that I have read and they have all been stinkers. I know she is a popular author but the books I have read have been terrible. I wont read another Johansen book. I hate it when authors write for quantity and not quality. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jo | 12/24/2010

    " I read this awhile back, and it was fairly typical of Johansen's writing: a mystical air with some historical fiction thrown in for reading pleasure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Niki | 8/25/2010

    " It was a really good story line. "

    " I loved this book! I picked this up randomly at the library and couldn't be more pleased. I loved the main characters of Megan and Neal, and even the supporting characters. I can't but hope that this will become a long series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Diane | 8/1/2010

    " Powers not known to most give these characters interesting emotions and reactions. "
