THE CAPTIVE'S RETURN
Love gets a second chance in Catherine Mann's The Captive's Return (4) when Colonel Lucas Quade raids a Cartina compound in search of a captive that the CIA has identified as his long-dead wife. Sarafina is attempting an escape with her daughter, and they flee straight into Lucas' path. Shocked that his wife has been alive the past five years--and that she has a child--Lucas has to put aside his mixed emotions and get them to safety. The trek is perilous in more ways than one; the dangerous jungle, the murderous hunters and the unspoken words between them leave Lucas and Sarafina fighting a battle they may not win. This is a suspenseful, emotional story that is fast-paced, keeping the reader turning those pages.
