Publishers Weekly Review

Dark secrets that can destroy lives propel bestseller Coulter's solid 12th FBI thriller (after Double Take). When a small plane carrying FBI Special Agent Jackson "Jack" Crowne makes a crash landing in mountainous Parlow, Ky., his friends FBI Special Agents Dillon Savitch and Lacey Sherlock fly by helicopter from Washington, D.C., to the scene. Jack survives the crash, aided by Rachael Abbott, a young woman who's returning to Parlow, her childhood home, after escaping an attempt to drown her in a Maryland lake. After Rachael reveals that she's the illegitimate daughter of the late Maryland senator John James Abbott, whose siblings she suspects are trying to kill her, the FBI agents agree to help. As further attempts on Rachael's life occur, the attraction grows between her and Jack. Despite a somewhat predictable plot, master of romantic suspense Coulter exposes the cost of obsessive regard for family honor and family shame with her usual flair. (June) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

Booklist Review

Rachael Abbott is on the run after an attempted drowning, and she is heading to the only person she can trust, her uncle Gillette, in remote Slipper Hollow, Kentucky. Just outside of the nearest town, her car breaks down, and she witnesses a plane crash. Rachael helps rescue the pilot and passenger, who turn out to be FBI agent Jack Crowne and Dr. MacLean, a psychiatrist with influential patients who has escaped several murder attempts. The good doctor is suffering from a type of dementia that has him inadvertently divulging his clients' secrets. After another attempt on Rachael's life, she tells Jack, his boss Savich, and Savich's wife and fellow agent, Sherlock, that she believes her would-be murders are her newly found relatives. Rachel only recently learned that she is the daughter of a slain senator. The twelfth romantic thriller featuring agents Savich and Sherlock is one of Coulter's best, delivering her trademark quips and nonstop action as the heroes chase bad guys from Kentucky to Washington, D.C.--Engelmann, Patty Copyright 2008 Booklist
