Very good book. It kept me flipping pages trying to figure out what was going to happen next. Easy weekend read.

Guitarist Mim Bracca is unceremoniously sent back to her hometown of Portland, OR by the rest of her band to dry out after her drinking has jeopardized their break-out tour. Mim tries to hide from everyone, including the fans that constantly recognize her, a brother who pesters her to get sober, and her biological father who has recently been released from prison after the accidental killing of her mother.

When nude pictures that she did not pose for begin appearing on the internet, Mim is forced out of hiding. However, the pictures are only the start: Mim's life and the lives of her family are threatened, forcing a reluctant Mim to fight back.

I read this book in one evening, staying up late to finish it. In Mim, Rucka has created a tough female protagonist worthy of Louise Ure, and his story has enough twists and turns to satisfy Harlen Coben fans. I highly recommend this over-looked gem of a thriller.
