When rookie lawyer Jessica Ford gets the call from her boss, John Davenport, the senior partner at the illustrious law firm for which she works, she can tell he is well on his way to being drunk. He needs Jess to meet First Lady Annette Cooper, for whom Davenport is a personal lawyer, at a Washington, D.C., hotel. Jess is thrilled: this high-profile assignment must mean that she's earned her boss's trust and she's on her way to bigger things. But unfortunately, bigger isn't always better.

Jess doesn't remember much - only that in the course of the late-night meeting with Annette Cooper, she ended up in the backseat of a car, speeding off into the darkness. All Jess knows is that the car crashed en route, and the other three passengers were killed, including the First Lady. Badly injured, Jess is the only survivor of what is trumpeted around the world as a tragic accident.

Although she has no memory about the events leading up to the accident, Jess is still bothered by one question: Was it really an accident? The Secret Service agent on the case, Mark Ryan, gets the feeling that Jess is hiding something. As his suspicions grow, Jess's world starts falling apart. First, she is brutally attacked in the hospital, barely escaping with her life. Then her boss dies under questionable circumstances. In fact, everyone who might possibly know the details about the First Lady's last few hours starts turning up dead. And then Jess understands: If she remembers that night, she'll be dead too.

Terrified and certain that the First Lady's death was no accident, Jess has only Mark Ryan to turn to. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " One of my very favorite suspenseful romance authors... I haven't read one of her's I haven't loved! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marti | 2/12/2014

    " Wow! I was impressed when I looked at the list of titles written by Karen Robards. This is an exciting story set in Washington, DC where lawyer Jessica Ford is sent by her inebriated boss to fetch the First Lady and take her back to the White House. Instead, there is a crash where all but Jessica are killed, and she is on the run from people who would take her from her hospital bed and do away with her. She has some help from a Secret Service man, Mark Ryan, but it isn't easy for them to elude the pursuers. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shawn Fox | 1/12/2014

    " Was OK - kept me guessing who was behind it all till the end. There was a lot of filler too, should have had more dialogue between the main characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ellie | 1/5/2014

    " Karen Robards did not let me down. Second book of hers I have read, and it kept my interest from cover to cover once again. Highly recommend her books to anyone who has not already read any. "

    " Trash, but fun enough. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sue Orvis | 9/18/2013

    " This was an OK book. I think the problem was that I read it after I read Executive Privilege which has a similar setting but far more exciting and better written than this book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Geraldine | 9/12/2013

    " This book tended to drag on at time and did not provide clues in what I consider a timely manner. It was just okay. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jean | 8/24/2013

    " suspenseful read "

    " A really good page turner. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deborah Morgan | 11/18/2012

    " The president's wife was killed in a car accident and Jess is the only survivor. Someone seems determined that she not be. What follows is a good old-fashioned mystery with a love story thrown in and enough action to keep you engrossed until the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Candace Tally | 10/16/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melody | 5/18/2012

    " Although I suspected the perpetrator of this story early on, the "getting there" made for an enjoyable and suspenseful read. For readers of romantic suspense who enjoy a mix of political maneuverers (and their dirty little secrets) and those who die (and kill) protect them. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aletha | 1/27/2012

    " The suspense along with the trials of Jessica Ford are tense. Karen Robards keeps you guessing & second guessing until the end. "

    " I have read several of Karen Robards books. She is from Louisville so I try to support a "home town" girl. Her books are similar in nature to Nora Roberts and Sandra Brown.....romance/thriller types. I enjoyed this one and if you are looking for entertainment, you might enjoy this one. "
