Darcy Allen has a successful business and a wonderful son, but her life is based on lies. She took her son and ran from her powerful, abusive husband, and she's been hiding ever since. No matter how many other abused women she's helped escape, she won't be free until she's exposed her husband and made it safe to put her Alias (3) behind her. The Athena Force continuity mystery doesn't progress much, but Darcy's story is emotionally satisfying. Bounty hunter Jack Turner is well-matched with Amy J. Fetzer's likeable heroine, and their chemistry sparks.
