Jake has two adorable children, and Caitlin loves her job, but when danger follows, must she flee again?
Andersen tells a chilling tale, one with enough twists and turns in the plot to keep you reading through dinner. And bedtime. Truth be told, I couldn’t put the book down once I started reading it. Taylor Jones
Andersen’s descriptions of the Australian Outback are wonderful. Made me feel like I’ve been there. And her characterizations are equally impressive. I didn’t have a single moment when I shook my head and said, “Oh come on, he wouldn’t do that.” And for me that is rare. Even the plot was totally believable. It really kept me on my toes.
