Robinson’s action-packed tale doesn’t shy away from the fact that the hero is an assassin. Featuring plenty of interesting gadgets for spying and killing, as well as some delightful dogs — and a good dose of humor and suspense — this book ensures readers will race to the perfectly fitting finish.
CIA agent Jack Pierce, aka Con Russo, is sent to Orchard Bluff, Wash., to get any information he can from an enemy agent called Rooster —and then kill him. The catch? Willow, the wife he hoped to never see again, is also there, and has been befriended by the Rooster. Two years ago, Willow believed Jack was dead. Then she meets Con. Gifted with the Sense, Willow hasn’t had the foreboding associated with it since the day Jack died. Now she does. Con is so familiar and yet not. Is he Jack? Willow is determined to find out, Jack is determined to keep Willow safe and the Rooster is determined to kill Jack — this time for real. (ST. MARTIN’S, Jan., 336 pp., $7.99)
