Nora McKee has never forgotten the terrible day her mother was abducted by government agents and "disappeared." Now it's happening again. In a crowded cafe on an ordinary street, they've come for her husband, Jake, a man who knows too much. And the last thing he says to Nora before he vanishes is a chilling warning...Run, Nora, run...


Alone and hunted by a shadow organization that will stop at nothing to find her, Nora is in a fight for survival far more important than she knows. For she is a link to a discovery beyond all human imagining...a brilliant experiment that has suddenly crossed the line into uncontrollable nightmare...


Review:This is going to be a fairly short review...because the book didn't grab me enough to write an in-depth analysis.

On the positive side: the plot is somewhat intriguing. Wanting to know the outcome is the only reason I kept reading.

On the negative: the writing is not good. The language isn't well put together. The dialogue is choppy. The story is too jumpy. The in-between details are not compelling.

All-in-all, if you're a fan of science-ish fiction mixed with an odd twist of romance and a conspiracy-based story, try it for yourself. Otherwise, skip.

If you have read or are planning to read this book, please make sure to stop back by and leave me a comment to let me know your own thoughts!

From my library to yours,
