Pearson is one of my fav writers (outside the Lou Bolt series). This is my fav of his books so far.
a spellbinding thriller pitting a u.s. federal marshal against the mobs most resourceful killer- in a race to save the woman he loves.
You can always depend on Pearson for a good read.
great mystery..kept me awake all night to finish it
Great thriller about a US marshall working with the Witness Protection program, with a very unexpected ending. [D]
This is the first book I've read by Ridley Pearson and it was fantastic. Just the right amount of mystery, intrigue and thrills! I will look for more by this author. Highly recommend.
Fast paced-keeps you breathless
A good fast-paced thriller!!
Taut and edge-of-the-seat compelling--a spellbinding thriller that pits the mob against the witness protection program and delivers romance and suspense.
What a great read. Every time I read a book like this, I think Ridley Pearson can't get any better, but he does. This nail biter has a new character, Roland Larson. Larson is a man who works for WITSEC, the witness protection program. He is guarding a woman slated to testify against a big crime family. She gets tired of the program and decides she can protect herself better than they do. She escapes from her protectors and disappears.
The rest of the book is one exciting action scene after another until the end of the book. The ending, once you get there, is so tense I couldn't put the book down until I found out how it was going to all come together. It was worth the read.
I highly recommend this book, especially to Ridley Pearson fans. You will not be disappointed.
This is the 3rd or 4th Ridley Pearson book that I have read and I have really liked all of them. This book is suspenseful and kept me on the edge of my seat.
witness protection marshal Roland Larson fell in love with a protected witness, Hope Stevens, whose testimony was to put away prominent members of the Romero crime family. When Hope's plan to "cut and run" is interrupted by both the government and the mob, she disappears into a new identity, taking with her not only her testimony but also a secret never shared with Larson.
