Adams’ growing base of fans will be thrilled with her latest. Last year’s outstanding Deadly Little Secrets introduced billionaire Davros Gianakopulos as a secondary character, and in this book he is at the center of kidnapping/revenge plot. Nonstop action and heart-stopping danger make this book unputdownable.

With his former head of security, Gates Bromley, now married to ex-CIA agent Ana Burton, Davros is re-evaluating his life. Is the time right to make a move on striking art gallery owner Carrie McCray? Their first date goes horrifically awry when they are abducted during a shootout, flown out of the country and dropped into an underground prison. Davros and Carrie must escape before the plot’s mastermind has them executed. Meanwhile, Gates and Ana frantically try to uncover who is behind the abduction and if Davros and Carrie are still alive.
