An intense, energetic, action-filled, engaging, fast-paced whodunit that I inhaled at one sitting. Wow, what an ending to an explosive series! And it is written so brilliantly, given just enough background information, that even if you haven't read the previous books, you can easily follow along and get what's going on - or as much as it is possible in the midst of the chaotic life or death situation.
Caroline Moser might be Marshal Jack Slater's ex, but there is nothing ex about his feelings towards her. The love and passion he feels for her are palpable. Yet he is doing everything he can to keep his feels in check and to stay focused, not to compromise Caroline's safety or the case they are working on. Caroline is weary to trust anyone after everything she has gone through, but her heart remembers Jack, and her instinct says she can rely on him. Maybe.
I adored Jack and Caroline and how their story was told. There are no pretenses or games, they are honest, straightforward with their intentions, and their emotions. The only things that could possibly keep them apart are amnesia and/or death, and someone is working hard to make that happen.
The thrillingly intense momentum builds up throughout the tale, every twist in the plot dangerous and potentially deadly, followed by fierce action and riveting passion, making the book unputdownable. I have read many of Fossen's romantic suspense stories before but this just might be my favorite...
