Deputy U.S. Marshal Casey Sloane has worked at the St. Louis Marshals office for two years and is given a routine assignment to help transport a reporter to D.C. to testify before a grand jury. Valerie, the reporter, was writing a story about an up-and-coming environmentalist who suddenly disappeared and, she later discovered, whose backers purportedly have ties to a terrorist.
When the seemingly ordinary assignment suddenly takes a shocking turn, Casey is forced to put aside her own feelings about the unexpected reappearance of a man from her past as she and two other Marshals take Valerie on the run. And as it becomes dangerously clear Valerie's testimony has even bigger implications than they knew, they'll do whatever it takes to make it out alive.
My thoughts: At first glance, this story seemed pretty cut and dried, though it was turned on it's head and full of suspenseful turns right away, so it wound up being more than I thought it would (which shouldn't of surprised me, since I have read most of Nancy's other stories and they are all excellent with a wonderful depth to them). I thought that Nancy did an excellent job of bringing modern struggles up. The twists to the story were well played. I highly recommend this book and the previous ones in the series!
I received this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
