When rookie lawyer, Jessica Ford recieves a call from her boss, John Davenport, to meet the First Lady at a D.C. Hotel, she is thrilled at such a high profile assignment. Two hours later, she lies near death in a coma, the only survivor of a terrible car crash that killed the First Lady. Even though Jess can't remember anything about the crash or what led up to it, she is suddenly the target of several attempts to kill her. The Secret Service don't believe her at first, but as everyone else involved with the situation begins dying around her, she knows she is in terrible danger. She finally convinces Mark Ryan, head agent on the case, to believe her, and he helps her escape to an unknown location. But Jess isn't sure who she can trust...even Mark.
This is a fast-paced action-packed book from start to finish. Karen Robards is one of my favorite authors because she combines a suspenseful story with a hot romance and seldom disappoints.
