A real "page-turner", couldn't put it down! Especially the last fifty pages. The suspense built slowly but steadily. The characters were people I enjoyed knowing. The only negative is that being written nearly 20 years ago the technology and biological advances that the characters could have used, such as cell phones, and DNA testing were strangely missing.

Harlequin Intrigue - # 114
Michael De Lorio was tall, dark and desperate . . .
For genealogist Sarah Montague, finding an adoptee's natural parents, even with few clues, was routine. But in Michael's case, the only clue was the terrifying nightmare that has haunted him all his life-a nightmare that he feared might be a memory of a terror that was all too real.
Even so, Michael had never dreamed that his search for the truth could lead to danger. But as he and Sarah delved deeper into his past they were threatened at every turn. Shared dangers gave them a common goal - survival. And their only hope for life - and love - was to re-bury the past and disappear without a trace.
I really enjoyed this book. It is a romance, mystery, thriller. Sarah, a genealogist is hired by Michael who is adopted to find his natural parents. This stirs up a lot of trouble. It was published in 1989 and is a little dated. At times the characters do things that don't seem logical, such as not calling the police when someone tries to kill them and Michael is wounded. Instead they went into hiding together. Catherine Anderson is one of my favorite authors. I would recommend this book.
Good main characters and action, but too bloody for my tastes. I prefer cozy mysteries.
