Savage, a former Navy SEAL and American state-of-the-art security specialist. Akira, Japan’s most brilliant executive protector and a master of the samurai arts. Their mission: the retrieval of Rachel Stone, a beautiful American woman whose ruthless billionaire husband is out to destroy her. But quickly Savage and Akira realize they are trapped in a mission more far-reaching than the protection of one person. For they are bound together in a common nightmare, a set of horrifying memories, a terrifying past that never happened, but is somehow inexplicably real. Only together can they confront the mystery. Yet when they do, an even more chilling scenario awaits them—one with the power to shatter not only their world but ours as well.

Listener Opinions

    " While many of the elements of fiction I loved were in place, interesting protagonists, intriguing settings, brain-bending true-to-life science (neuroscience), spies, assassins, questionable memories, martial arts, and moving action, I felt the end lacked... something. It didn't feel like the most powerful ending that Morrell could have written. On the whole, I liked the book and will lend it out to my friends. I learned a lot, though, about Executive Protectors, tradecraft, Japan, and Japanese Culture. Morrell presented the Japanese culture in a way that a westerner can understand it more thoroughly than one would think. But, as is stated in the book, people of the western mind are not tribal enough to truly, completely, understand the Japanese mindset. And, to a degree, Morrell seems to be admitting that he too only has peripheral understanding of the mindset himself. But, as all good authors, he shows you what he does understand and uses that as any adroit magician will do to hide what he does not understand. On the whole I did like it and would recommend it. "

    " A thriller by a master of suspense. I love most of Morrell's older books, and this is one that is hard to put down. "

    " Again, good book, good plot twist, good character development without too much detail. "

    " Picked it up at the airport and was the perfect book for me to read when traveling - quick, engrossing, and light. "
