Summary

When cybercriminals hack into the US Marshals' Witness Protection database and auction off witnesses' personal details to the highest bidders, the RED Team led by FBI Agent Sean Nichols begins a high-stakes chase to find the hacker. But before he can even get started, the first witness is targeted and barely escapes with her life. Sean believes Phantom, an obsessed hacker who previously outwitted the top minds in the field, is behind the attack, and Sean needs this witness's help, as she's the person who has come closest to discovering Phantom's identity. 

Trouble is, she's a witness under the care of US Marshal Taylor Mills, and Sean is reluctant to work with the captivating marshal who knows his deepest secrets. But Phantom claims he knows where the witness is hiding and will kill her, so to stop the hacker, Sean and Taylor must work through their personal pain and learn to trust each other....

The seconds are ticking down before someone dies.

Great story but buy the book, narrator not great

The story is great and Susan is one of my favorite authors. I have all of her audiobooks and enjoy them. This one departed from her typical narrator. The narrator for this audiobook rendered the women’s voices deep and the men’s nasally. It was so destruction that I gave up and ordered the book instead. I miss the previous narrator used for the Cold Harbor and White Knights series.

Too much drama

A really good story by S. Sleeman, however it was tempered by the overdramatizing of when someone wasn’t totally honest because of their difficult pasts. How “Shawn” couldn’t get over that “Taylor” had lied about a small issue of whether she’d had anything to do with her brother’s suicide or not. GHASTLY! END OF RELATIONSHIP! TRUST ALL GONE! Aaaaaaaugh!!!! Of course she couldn’t admit it all immediately....Not a deal breaker or a relationship- ending lie. There were other dramas as well that were overdone. Also, I still don’t know how they ended up in love because during the entire book one was always trampling on the others feelings and there was very little positive interaction between them. Not sure how love comes out of that. However the story was still a decent listen. Also with the narrator- my only beef was that I don’t like when female narrators lower their voices to sound manly- and she took it a step further and lowered/changed her tone for the main female character too. Just my personal preference I’m sure...

Suspenseful

This book really kept me going. I did not want to stop, but instead at the end of each chapter found myself continuing on. I cannot imagine what it would be like to think I was safe and then find out otherwise or to be the ones trying to get it all under control. The agents have to work together and with one of the witnesses to try to find the hacker and get the information back under wraps. I am anticipating to see what happens next in this series.

Narrator Almost Made Listening Intolerable

Susan Sleeman's books are really good, and I'm enjoying them! However, Gabra Zackman's narration turned me off from the get-go. In fact, I rarely write reviews, but I just had to say something in the hopes authors won't choose her ever again. This was only the second book in the series, and I loved the narrator of the first one, so I have no idea why a switch was made, but if I hadn't already been sucked into the series by Susan's good stories, I would have quit listening and returned the book. Gabra reads everything the same way . . . with such intensity it's like every single part of the story is the climax. It's super annoying!

I couldn’t force myself to listen all the way through.

The storyline and the narration graded on me. I kept hoping it would get better, But it seemed overly dramatic, contrived, and a bit depressing.
