She had the perfect life.
She had the perfect cover.
She was the perfect witness.
Until they found her.


From the blockbuster bestselling author of the Eve Duncan novels comes a new, stand alone thriller about a woman with a photographic memory who has lived her life in the Witness Protection Program.  What she once saw put her entire family in jeopardy and now, years later, her cover is blown.  She’s on the run, and the lives of those she holds dear hang in the balance.  As only Iris Johansen can do, the pages turn themselves and you won’t see the twists coming.

  1. I remember how much you like this author! I haven’t read her in years, since she was primarily a romance author, I think. It’s nice to see that she’s still going strong, it’s so interesting when you see romance authors cross over to mainstream.

    Have you read Tess Gerritsen? Her Rizzoli and Isles series is really good, especially the earlier books. They are NOTHING like the campy television series. The author was a pathologist, so the coroner scenes are really well done, as are the crime procedural stuff. I think you’d like her medical mysteries as well, I wish she was still writing those. But sadly, that genre doesn’t seem to be in favor any more.
