Back Cover / Inside Flap:"Jim Beckett was everything she'd every dreamed of...

But two years after Tess married the decorated cop and bore his child, she help put him behind bars for savagely murdering ten women. Even locked up in a maximum security prison, he vowed he would make her pay. Now the cunning killer has escaped - and the most dangerous game of all begins.

After a lifetime of fear, Tess will do something she's never done before. With the help of burned-out ex-marine J. T. Dillon and FBI profiler Pierce Quincy, she's going to fight back. As the largest man-hunt four states have ever seen mobilizes to catch Beckett, the clock winds down on a terrifying reunion between husband and wife. And Tess knows that this time, her only choices are to kill - or be killed."


Review:The only reason I gave this story two stars instead of one is that the basic story line is actually interesting. Unfortunately, the details along the way aren't very compelling and the technical aspects of the story are downright wrong at times. Actual police procedure goes right out the window. The story gives way too much detail in one scene...and not enough in the next. So although, as I said, the basic story line has some merit, the book as a whole isn't all that great.

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,
