Wow! What a start to a fast pace mystery. There you are quietly in your home, and you hear a knock on your door. I suspect it was more like a pounding Julia heard. As she opens the door , she comes face to face with Eli Cayne, also known as a US Marshall. There has been a hit put on her life and she must go with Eli to a safe house. This must have been hard to decipher for Julia. After all she is still trying to recover from a horrible crime committed against her. Because of the injuries she sustained during that brutal attack, she can't remember much about the incident. What must it be like to know something horrible happened to you, yet you can't put the puzzle together?
I loved Julia instantly. She was gutsy, tough and a little apprehensive of others. I believe she was well written and made the story so realistic. She works as a pediatric nurse and her compassion for her patients were so genuine. This new threat to her life is something she has to face and will have to learn to trust Eli. Will she learn to trust Eli?
Eli is a very strong character and will do anything to keep Julia safe. Will her memory cone back so she can help the police figure out who wants her dead? Eli is always close by and I loved his protectiveness towards her. I loved the references to their faith in the story. It was gentle little reminders that they were trusting God to see them through the situation they were in. The story starts with a bang and never slows down. Now they must figure out who the "Hangman" is and stop him or her before another death happens. I loved that there were several suspects which made the story so intriguing. With the medical terminology in the book, I appreciated the research went into the story. The author has once again written a story that gives me chills and keeps me turning pages as fast as I can. Get ready for an intense story that will have readers following Julia and Eli as they try to keep one step ahead of the "Hangman." The ending is so compelling and action packed I didn't want it to end. Once again the author has given readers a heart pounding story that mystery fans will love.
