This is a page turner that leads us into the most dangerous part of the world, that of Al Qaeda, The author presents well-drawn characters, from the desperate protagonist to the most evil terrorist. We constantly wonder which of the men seeking Rachel have her best interests in mind. The author plants seeds of doubt that makes us realize someone, other than the terrorists plans on ending Rachel's life. I sweat with her in the desert heat, froze in the frigid desert night, and worried with her in captivity. When she escapes, and they take her a second time, we wonder how on earth she is going to get out of it this time. The writer presents the hero, Booth, in a very unusual, but satisfying way. This book is exciting, well-crafted, and held my interest all the way through to the exciting end.
I will anxiously await the next book by this author. She is a truly gifted writer.
