Summary:

He strikes without warning....he kills without mercy....he's only just begun....

Iris Johansen, the New York Times bestselling author of The Killing Game and The Face of Deception, delivers a gripping new novel of breathtaking suspense and explosive adventure. It is the story of a courageous woman who is coerced into tracking down a ruthless killer--but as she hunts out her prey with stunning accuracy, she becomes the object of his wrath....

As part of an elite K-9 search and rescue team, Sarah Patrick and her golden retriever, Monty, have a gift for finding what no one else can--whether it's a survivor buried alive by an earthquake or the skeleton of a murdered child. But their latest assignment is not like the others. This time Sarah is being forced to take part in a deadly mission...by a man who knows enough about her past to ensure her cooperation. A man who won't take no for an answer. John Logan is used to getting what he wants, and what he wants now is Sarah's help. His top-secret venture has been sabotaged, its facilities destroyed, and its handpicked staff massacred. The sole survivor is being held for ransom. Logan knows that the only way to save the man--and the secrets he holds--is to find him as soon as possible.

Smart, tough, and uncompromising, Sarah is furious when she is strong-armed into joining Logan on his search. And once she takes the perilous assignment, she realizes that Logan's promises that she and Monty will be safe may not be enough to protect them. Because a killer is devising a sadistic vengeance...and he may soon find use for Sarah. Racing against time to stop the bloodshed before more victims are claimed, both Sarah and Logan will look straight into the heart of true evil. And when the killer's search for revenge finally ends, no one will ever be the same again....

    Loved the first set of CD's but then the second set was out, not mailed and unavailable for a while and it was impossible to follow the story after reading another before and after it...too bad would have been a great read, well on to the next book. Love this author....would recommend her.

    This novel should probably not be listed as a mystery. It seems to be a mixture of romance and thriller, and not a very successful one at that. I rarely return books before I have listened to all of the CDs, but this one deserves a pass.

    Iris Johansen does great with this story about John Logan. As you go through her series you see a lot of him and it's good to hear his story. Her stories are hit or miss...but I can safely say that this is a hit (and I'm even more pleased that I get a dose of Galen in the process...only one of the coolest characters ever)

    I have read (or listened to) most of Iris Johansens books and this was by far my favorite. Monty quickly became my favorite of all her characters. I love the way she uses familiar characters from book to book.
