Bestseller Brennan's new heroine is the epitome of a survivor. In this chilling thriller, Brennan explores the consequences of sliding from fierce commitment into obsession. The sociopathic villain at the center of this tale is truly revolting. A master of suspense, Brennan does another outstanding job uniting horrifying action, procedural drama and the birth of a romance -- a prime example of why she's tops in the genre.

Saving those who face the same horrors she did as a child has become Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent Sonia Knight's life commitment. As a child, Sonia was sold by her father into a slavery/prostitution ring. Sonia's sights currently are set on Xavier Jones, who she believes is part of a major human-trafficking ring.

Then hotshot assistant FBI director Dean Hooper arrives with a subpoena. Dean has been on Jones' trail for years and is willing to work with Sonia to bring him down, but there's another, more deadly player in this game -- one who will stop at nothing to achieve his goals.
