Summary

When an international ring of sex traffickers kidnaps an eight-year-old girl in Boston, FBI Agent Lucas Randall heads undercover. But his rescue operation goes disastrously wrong and Lucas barely escapes with his life. Now the ruthless traffickers are hunting him down, along with everyone else who threatens their operation.

Computer expert Ashley Chen joined the FBI to fight against evil in the world - evil she experienced firsthand. She has mad skills, and deadly secrets, and once she starts working with Lucas, she also has big trouble, because after years of pushing people away, she's falling for the guy. The feeling is more than mutual, but as Ashley intensifies her online pursuit of the trafficking ring, her traumatic past collides with her present and suddenly Lucas can't tell which side she's on. And as the case escalates into a high-stakes game of cat and mouse, it turns out Ashley isn't the only one with something to hide.

If neither can trust the other with their secrets, how can they trust each other with their hearts?

Excellent Action and bad guys story!

This was a great story, I really enjoyed every bit of it.

I liked Lucas and Ashley together, they had some good chemistry and there were a couple of hot and steamy sex scenes, not erotica just steamy.

The story line and plot was great. There was murder, human trafficking, serious bad guys and a bit of mystery. Lots of action with the FBI and BAU trying to catch the bad guys.

A couple characters from the previous books like Alex Parker and Mallory.

As for the narration... Well it's Eric Dove! Which means it was excellent! He is one of the best male narrators ever! Love him. He does the women's voices so well, and he has an amazing reading voice!

Thrills, chills and excitment

WOW it gets you right in the gut and makes you want to grab you children hug them tight and keep them close to you. No one trust the other, there seem to be a link no one knows where, could it be in their department. So many secrets, so many lies which will lead to many broken hearts. The book starts out with a knock at the door, a secret password and then all hell breaks loose leaving people dead and some wounded. This is just the beginning to a fast pace action adventure as the hunt is on to find the traffickers it goes from the hunted to being the hunter and back again leaving so many unanswered questions as the bad guys seem to be one step ahead of FBI.

I just love Mr. Dove’s narration he pulls you in with a very strong and powerful voice. There are no background noises or repeating of words just a wonderful delightful listen. If any breaks were taken I could not tell he just delivers a very clean, clear and power audio. His tones are outstanding you can feel the passion, excitement coming right out of your speakers. His male voices are a wonderful as his female. You always know who is talking and what they are feeling. His normal voice is just a delight to listen to as he gives you the facts pulling you in to a world that has gone crazy. You can tell he has put a lot of thought into each character the voices fit them so well. He gives just enough pause, to let what he just read sink in giving it a powerful impact on the listener. Mr. Dove knows how to pull you in taking your on a ride that will leave you holding your breath wanting to pull the characters out of the story to keep them safe. His Performance is one of the best narrators I have listened to. I know when I see his name it is going to be a wild exciting ride.

This leads off with mystery, suspense and action with wonderful characters that keeps you entertained with a page turner you can’t put down. When it comes to children there is nothing more dearly to your heart than a child that has been kidnapped and put in a sex ring. The clock is ticking as Lucas is on a race with the clock to find the little girl who has been taken before harm can be done to her. Just when we think it is all going to work out all hell breaks loose with bodies flying and buildings falling. This is a very emotional touching read from the characters to the issues. It is a race to bring the traffickers in and keeping the child alive to be able to get her alive until she can get to the court to put them away.

I really liked the chemistry between Lucas and Ashley the bickering just add to the romance and story. The twists and turns are exciting along with the suspense and action. It seems everyone is hiding something from the ones on the right side of the laws to the ones that are on the other side. Ashley seemed so open and up front until she starts acting weird than you know it must be something big. When you find the answer your heart just breaks for her. I really liked the characters and loved the plot it kept me guessing, hanging on the edge, a few heart stopping moments with lots of excitement and suspense. The ending is wonderful. Ms. Anderson is one of my favorite authors from the first book I picked up that scared the crap right out of me. She has had me in the palm of her hands every since.

Don't pass this one by......

Another addition to the FBI series from an author who knows how to keep you on the edge of your seat! You won't want to put this down until the very end.
This book is the story of Lucas Randall, Ashley Chen and the trafficking of sex slaves. Some of the details are disturbing but need to be. This is a fight every step of the way to find the clues that will lead them to the criminals they both want to put behind bars. Their attraction is immediate and they try to ignore it but it is a losing battle. It's not all roses and some lines will be crossed that could well destroy the fledgling relationship. Lucas & Ashley will have to use every tool at their disposal to fight these near ghosts and to find their own hea. Eric G Dove is amazing as the narrator for this series. I'm looking forward to the next in this series.

Outstanding!!!

I can't say enough about this series. They are well written, engaging, and down right entertaining! These agents worked to bring down sex traffickers ran by a Chinese crime family and did it well. There is growing love between two agents, and growing respect between two others. You hear updates on other agents you have come to know from previous books, and some make personal appearances. Eric G. Dove is wonderful as always and delivered as always. Well worth the credit if you enjoy this type of story.

Twists, Suspense and Love!

Lucas is an undercover FBI agent who has infiltrated a brothel trying to find a young girl who had been kidnapped by a sex trafficking ring. The assignment explodes, literally, which allows some of the criminals to escape and more questions than answers.

Ashley’s computer skills has been loaned to Lucas’s unit which makes her a target as well. She has a dark past and as a result doesn’t let people too close as the danger it would bring to them as well but Lucas has managed to infiltrate her walls.

When her secret is exposed her loyalty is questioned and the only way to save those around her is to place herself directly in the line of fire but will they escape with their lives? Their story is filled with suspense, twists and action that keep you guessing until the end.

The narrator did a wonderful job with bringing the characters to life. I voluntarily reviewed an audio copy of this book.

Had Me On The Edge Of My Seat

Where does Cold Secrets rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I would say this ranks up near the top. It was an experience that I thoroughly enjoyed.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Cold Secrets?

I really didn't have a memorable moment. I'm terrible at mysteries and I certainly had trouble figuring out where this story was going. But that's what gets me hooked because it's always a surprise. My mind tries to go in one direction and then the author has it going in another. I think my disappointment would come if my mind actually started figuring things out because than it would become predictable.

Which scene was your favorite?

I don't know that I can answer that because I could inadvertently give something away and I don't want to spoil it for someone else. I will say that Mr. Dove was a perfect choice as the narrator to have for this series. My Wish List has now been increased by a few books. I can't picture any other narrator giving me this perfect listener experience. It makes me wonder if Ms. Anderson had him as an inspiration when creating her heroes.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It was a book that I wanted to listen to in one sitting but it just wasn't possible. At some point in time I would like to try. But then the problem becomes if I want to listen to the whole series - one book after the other. I would need to sleep at some point.

Any additional comments?

I fell in love while listening to this book. The story line kept me transfixed. I'm in awe in how this author can create such an unbelievable story. Mr. Dove has the perfect voice for her characters. I don't miss the fact that there's no woman narrator to help create the female characters. He does a good job all on his own. I've listened to two books in the Cold Justice series and each book holds its own so you could decide that you don't want to listen to the books in order. But at some point, if you are like me, you want to make sure to continue the series. I don't think that I would get either the e-book or a print copy of the book because I'm having too much fun listening to Mr. Dove read me a story.

I voluntarily reviewed an Audiobook copy of this book.

The story has laughs, secrets, danger, and heartbr

4 star

The audio book was a smooth listen and I enjoyed the listen. The narrator was great and the listening was smooth and you could feel the emotions. I didn’t feel like he was stiffly reading the story. I could keep interested in the story even while listening through the audio book.

The story has laughs, secrets, danger, and heartbreak. This story is about Lucas and Ashley. They are trying to solve a case that involves an international ring of sex traffickers. They have kidnapped an 8-year-old girl Lucas goes in undercover, but things turn horrible. He just barely escaped with his life. Not they are after him and anyone he is out to get them and take them down. Ashley has her own past and secrets that she is keeping. She has experienced danger but wants to fight to keep danger away. When the past comes out will everyone know that she is still on the good side or will they assume she is helping out all the bad guys? Can these two solve the case or is everything they worked for about to go down hill fast?

I loved these characters and the side characters. I felt I could connect with the characters and the story was a great read.

I recommend this book.

Always a delight to hear another story in the Cold Secrets Series

Always a delight to hear another story in this series.

I’ve been waiting for Lucas to find his love. I was happy with the story and the fact that it wasn’t apparent as to who was the mole in the agency leaking out the information.

Really happy that the two youngest were saved from the Asian gang and able to return back to mostly a regular life?

pretty awesome

A pretty good read. I almost guessed the whole plot before I read it, but I love a happy ending, and these books always promise it.
