What Detective Brady St. John really needs is a relaxing vacation. Unfortunately, just as the sun is setting on his second day at a friend’s cabin on Lake Henley, he hears a scream and races to rescue a woman from her would-be killer. When the killer escapes only to return to finish the job, Brady vows to utilize all of his many resources to keep her safe–and catch those who would see her dead.
Financial crimes investigator Emily Chastain doesn’t trust many people. And even though she let the detective who saved her life in on a few pertinent facts about why she was being attacked, there are some things you just don’t share with a stranger. Little does she suspect that the secret she is keeping just might get them both killed.
Bestselling and award-winning author Lynette Eason sends readers on a race for the truth in this heart-stopping story of risk, regret, and redemption.
This is the third book in the exciting series about the St. John family, written by Lynette Eason, who just happens to be one of my favorite suspense authors.
I am loving this series, especially the way it is about the St. John family. This one is about Brady.
This story just starts off with a bang.
Brady has had a stressful time of it and all he wants is to get some R&R at a quiet forest lakeside cabin. He’s relaxing beside the lake when he hears a scream and sees what appears to be a woman’s abduction and maybe attempted murder. He rescues her and has to try and keep her safe, away from her would-be killers.
Through all of this, they are trying to figure out why someone wants to kill her.
Emily (the woman) has no idea. She assumes it must be something to do with her job as a financial crimes investigator. But to her knowledge, this seems random…
Other people she knows have also disappeared or maybe even killed.
They try to connect the dots.
I loved the suspense in this story. It was action packed, and kept me guessing until the last pages.
The St. John family is quickly becoming some of my favorite characters by Lynette Eason, and I look forward to the next book in this series!
