From the #1 New York Times bestselling author comes an explosive new thriller
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 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, you won't see the twists coming.

Probably not by the author. It was a bit long winded and self indulgent.
No, but it was like a poor man's version of x-men.
Yes. I found the main character irritating, but I don't think that was her the reader's fault.
Most of the middle.
"Worst book I've read this year"
If the writing was more realistic, or if I even could figure out or CARE what the characters were doing next.
The narrator did as good a job as could be expected with such crappy material.
All of them. Especially the main two characters, Allie and Mendac. Ugh!
I normally love Iris Johansen, but she was off her game on this book. It truly sucked. I honestly can not find one redeeming quality to this book, sorry.
"i paid for it so by gum, i listened to the whole thing"
A better, less predictable plot. Characters with depth-not the stereotypical ones in this s t ory. A reader who didn't do the fake lower voice for the guy would have been nice. Also, it starts with a grown man and a 16 yr old girl with sexual overtones-creeeepy
Not a Johansen book
Someone who could give a male inflection without the lower voice deal
They didn't kill the tiger??
She sure got over the mind reading thing. It w a s almost like she didn't have a power after all. Kind of confusing
"No better than Mills and Boon"
I thought it would be a mystery or thriller, it was neither just a highly predictable, Mills and Boon type paranormal plod.
Something unpredictable, something not totally obvious from the very beginning
I think every romantic cliché ever invented could be found in this book.
"What an Awful Book"
I'm too disappointed to decide right now
Performance could have been less like reading it
Mandak. I would either cut him or make him less like a robot
Don't bother with this book
Didn't connect with the characters. Felt like the story began in the middle of something and never went back and explained the backstory enough.
Disappointment. couldn't wait for it to be over but had to finish it because that's what I do.
"WARNING: Misleading Advertisiing"
If the story was actually what was advertised.
If I had know what genre this story really was I would never have purchased it.
Not for me
The description of this book is VERY misleading. It talks about the 'witness's' photographic memory and witness protection. That sounded intriguing to me. However, within a few minutes of the story beginning you learn that the witness actually has what can only be described as mystical / clairvoyant powers. That is of no interest to me. I really feel I was mislead by how Audible described this story.
I think the story idea is a good one, but the author cannot make the dialog believable. The reader is good. I made it through 12 out of 16 chapters, but can't stand the way the dialog goes, and the story begins to deteriorate as the book progresses.
"Repetitive-Same Dialogue over and over"
I would be very careful from now on.
Her performance is fine.
Unfortunately the MAIN character!
Same conversations happen over and over but in different settings. Woods, Cabin, House, Friend's house. Ridiculous waste of time and money.
"Please let it be over soon!"
She has this great ability to see people's memories and hasn't used it once. This is stupid.
"Good not great"
Interesting but a little far fetched, plus not super "end of your seat." Narration is excellent though. This would be on my maybe list.
