Corporate executive Jonathan Brighton is a brilliant workaholic who hasn't taken a vacation in years. After having been maneuvered by his brother and partners into taking time off, John reluctantly heads down to a remote location in Mexico. On his way to the location John falls victim to an apparent carjacking and is shot in the head.

Six months later, John is slowly recovering, though most of his memory is gone. FBI agent Katie Cavanaugh is working undercover as a physical therapist to find out if John is involved in the murder of Derek Miller, a partner of John's company. Miller disappeared at the time John was shot, and John was probably the last person to see him alive.

Katie is having a tough time believing John is involved, but all the evidence seems to point in his direction. The bigger problem is that John can't remember any of his actions from that time. Katie's superiors are pushing for a quick resolution, so time is running out for both of them.

Psychological suspense is expertly combined with action and romance to form one of rising star Dee Davis' best books to date. MIDNIGHT RAIN is top-notch romantic suspense. (Dec., 384 pp., $6.99)
