The man emerged from the mist, right in front of Cathy Weaver’s car–running from killers who were closing in on him. Victor Holland’s story sounded like the ravings of a man on the brink of madness, but his claim to be a fugitive was confirmed by the haunted look in his eyes–and the bullet hole in his shoulder. As each hour brings pursuers ever closer, Cathy has to wonder, is she giving her trust to a man in danger or trusting her life to a dangerous man?
If you think your having a bad day, week, month. Soon you will feel grateful for what you have once you read the type of day that Victor and Cathy have.
This was a nice fast pace, quick but enjoyable read. I have mentioned it before that I really do enjoy Tess Gerritsen and have wondered a few times why I have not found her earlier than this. She is exactly what I like in a writer and I am gripped every time I pick up one of her books. I even crave it. Sounds crazy I am sure.
While reading this book, I felt that this could be a short movie or possibly it already is the outline for an existing film. You have the world against a man who carries knowledge about the government breaking it’s own rules. Victor is involved because he was good friends with the someone who was directly connected to the illegal interaction between the government and the lab.
Victor knows he holds a secret, which someone wants to be kept quiet and is willing to kill to do so. He holds evidence but he is unsure of what it is exactly and he calls upon a few college friends to help him out. Unfortunately, Catherine Weaver and Victor have crossed paths. Headlines soon report one woman was killed, who was mistaken to be Catherine and two other women carrying her name were also killed.
