"Nora Roberts shines" (Publishers Weekly) once again in this riveting new thriller that explains why USA Today calls her "a consistently entertaining writer." Might as well get to the edge of your seat now....
Single mom Phoebe MacNamara's career path was paved at an early age. It happened the day a violent man imprisoned her and her family in their home, terrorizing them for hours. Now Phoebe's a police lieutenant and Savannah's top hostage negotiator. Her skills also come in handy when caring for her agoraphobic mother—who, after all these years, hasn't recovered from the trauma—and her 7-year-old daughter Carly.
But Phoebe's days of working solo are numbered when she meets businessman Duncan Smith, who finds her combination of sexy woman, hardened cop and super-mom impossible to resist. And she's most grateful for the warmth and solace of his strong embrace after an attack by an unknown assailant—in her own precinct house—leaves her deeply shaken. Soon, though, a string of terrifying threats spells it out: a madman is after the people in Phoebe's life, and she realizes it's all leading to a dramatic showdown—one she's been preparing for all her life. Explicit sex and language.
