Booklist Review

Kane, known for her historical romances, makes an impressive foray into modern romantic suspense. While out for an early morning run in Central Park, attorney Victoria Kensington sees her sister, Audrey, who is supposed to be in Florence, Italy, on the ground in a hospital gown. By the time she gets back with help, her sister has disappeared. When she contacts her domineering father, he denies that Audrey is in New York. Victoria eventually discovers that her sister is staying in a very exclusive and very private hospital. When she tries to visit, she's turned away, an attempt that does not go unnoticed by the FBI, which believes that the hospital is linked to a massive drug ring. Victoria's former, and never forgotten, boyfriend, Zach Hamilton, is on the case, and the two join forces to find out what's really going on; amidst all the suspense, Zach and Victoria rekindle their romance. Kane's fast-paced thriller features dynamic characters and sensuous love scenes. --Patty Engelmann


Publisher's Weekly Review

Following a string of historical romances, Kane (The Theft; The Gold Coin) plunges into the popular world of contemporary romantic suspense. Kane's strong suit is her ability to create memorable characters; consequently, the plot is driven not only by events, but also by the wants, fears and histories of heroine Victoria Kensington, a 28-year-old Manhattan attorney, and hero Zachary Hamilton, a brilliant 30-something intelligence expert. Victoria's fear of dependence, rooted in her relationship with her Machiavellian father, caused Victoria and Zach's initial breakup four years earlier and hinders their getting back together after an incident in Central Park involving Victoria's unstable sister, Audrey, apparently running from unknown pursuers in a hospital gown. Audrey's flight and disappearance somehow involves the secretive Hope Institute, and not only forces Victoria to face her relationship with Zach, but also to deal with her father, who may be involved in drug smuggling with the Institute. What sets this book apart from other romantic thrillers is Kane's deft skill in defining the actions of her lead characters: her love scenes, for example, are exceptional, neither euphemistic nor clinical. Though slow to start, her latest marks a decisive transition for Kane from genre fiction into the mainstream. (Nov.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
