When a homeless veteran is found dead in a squalid Sacramento alley, FBI special agent Megan Elliott vows to find the murdered hero’s killer. Her investigation gets complicated fast, for the victim, a former Delta Force soldier, is just one link in a nationwide spree of torture and murder.

Straight off a job rescuing medical missionaries, soldier-for-hire Jack Kincaid returns to his home base in the Texas border town of Hidalgo only to receive the news that one of his closest colleagues–also ex-military–has been brutally murdered. Faced with an inept local police force, Jack takes matters into his own hands.

Now, as part of a national task force to stop the sadistic killings, by-the-book Megan and burn-the-book Jack form a tense alliance, sparked with conflict and temptation. But they struggle against more than passion, for a vicious pair of killers has only just begun a rampage of evil . . . and the primary target is much closer than Megan suspects.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shirley | 2/15/2014

    " Liked the suspense with some romance thrown in. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joan | 2/11/2014

    " This book was great, what a psychopath. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristin | 2/10/2014

    " Good suspense and romantic story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Roswita | 2/2/2014

    " Well done! A serial killer is after a group of veterans and the hunt is on. While this is your standard cops vs. bad guys, Brennan's writing and character development is top-notch and make this a book that stands out in its field. This one definitely gets my recommendation. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joyce McKune | 1/27/2014

    " Someone is killing off former Delta Force men. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shiela | 1/19/2014

    " There are a few of her books that I found to be absolutely amazing and disturbing and this one wasn't quite up to par. Not as suspenseful as the others but pretty graphic gore nonetheless. The one thing that totally bugs me is how the characters can meet and completely fall in love over the course of 100 pages (or 48 hours) and know that he is "the one." I know that this is a characteristic of romantic suspense books, but puh-leze! Bring on the murder and mayhem anytime. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Megan | 1/18/2014

    " I think I've found a new favorite author! I started reading Allison Brennan's Lucy Kincaid series and loved it, so I figured I'd read some others. I am so glad I did. I really enjoyed this book, beginning to end. I can't wait to read the next one. It's interesting, too, because this series involves Jack Kincaid, Lucy's brother who is referred to in the other series. I absolutely recommend this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tricia | 1/14/2014

    " good twists. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda | 1/12/2014

    " I should probably give this five stars based on the crush I've had on Jack Kincaid since he was first mentioned in a Brennan book but I have to remind myself he is fiction therefore saddening me to drop that fifth star. This book was well written and well read. I'd definitely read it over again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deborah | 1/10/2014

    " I had a difficult time getting into this book. It took me until I was halfway before it really grabbed me. The story line was good overall but a bit too descriptive. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 12/20/2013

    " FBI Megan & mercenary Jack. Listened to it on audio. Will await books 2 & 3. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Clare | 10/28/2013

    " Didnt like this one at all took me ages to read it and even then i skimmed it rather than read it as I just couldnt get into it. Not one to give up though I shall try another one of hers as I like to give authors a good chance before I leave them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dawn Leitheuser | 9/27/2013

    " I really enjoyed this story alot. Read all 424 pages today..could not put it down "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cat | 8/22/2013

    " Nice twist ending but the ending left a few personal loose strings and left me feeling a bit unfulfilled with regards to other personal drama between some characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christine | 3/11/2013

    " I enjoyed this book and the suspense with a side of romance. I found myself wanting to know more about Megan and Jack and their backgrounds. I will be a little freaked every time I go in for acupuncture and see the needles. Shiver- "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 1/26/2013

    " Good book, I had not read this author before an now want to read her other books. I really liked the charators. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hpitcher | 11/18/2012

    " Good. The romance was kind of slow starting because the author spent a lot of time developing the characters and storyline before getting to that part but all in all it was an interesting plot and an enjoyable read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jan | 6/21/2012

    " Wow, I really was expecting so much more from Jack, he was suppose to be the ultimate alpha male and sorry to say the sizzle in the previous books about him left me with no spark in this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nic Parenteau | 5/22/2012

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol | 10/8/2011

    " The plot was generally good. The one exception was the character's need to hop in the sack less than 48 hours after meeting because they "know all there is to know" about each other. Geez, an FBI agent would really do that? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cheryl | 8/18/2011

    " Awesome!! Twist, suspense, a great read "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jan | 5/7/2011

    " Wow, I really was expecting so much more from Jack, he was suppose to be the ultimate alpha male and sorry to say the sizzle in the previous books about him left me with no spark in this book. "

    " Someone is killing off former Delta Force men. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 MRS | 1/31/2011

    " My opinion didn't change once I finished the book - my update halfway through says what I felt about the romance part of the book. The rest was great, though...it's a shame they had to claim to be in love after knowing each other a week. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol | 11/22/2010

    " The plot was generally good. The one exception was the character's need to hop in the sack less than 48 hours after meeting because they "know all there is to know" about each other. Geez, an FBI agent would really do that? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shelby | 12/7/2009

    " An ok book. Storyline dragged in some parts and was a pageturner in others. I will give this author another try though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joanie | 8/30/2009

    " Kept me on my toes and wanting to turn each page to find out who the killer was "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alice | 7/31/2009

    " Another good one by Brennan. The plot, twists and characters were all good.

    A lot of familiar players show up in this. I do wish she had more Megan/Jake interaction, but they were hot regardless. "
