For more than a year, Sebastian Costas has been trying to unravel the truth behind the murder of his ex-wife and son. Despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, he's convinced that her second husband--a cop--committed both murders, then faked his own death. Now Sebastian has followed the slimmest of leads to Sacramento...and that's where he finally gets the break he needs. Jane Burke, an investigator with The Last Stand, calls him in connection with a separate crime--a crime that could lead him straight to the man he's been looking for. Once married to a serial killer, Jane has spent the past five years rebuilding her life. And with Sebastian she finally has a chance at happiness. But the man they're after is after them, too. For him this has become a personal battle, one he's determined to win. Whatever it takes...
Sebastian Costas's yearlong hunt for the ex-cop who killed Sebastian's ex-wife and son and then faked his own death has led Sebastian to Sacramento, CA, and into the life of Jane Burke, a victim's advocate at The Last Stand charity who is looking for two missing sisters. Realizing they are after the same man, Jane and Sebastian set a trap for the killer, but what began as a one-way hunt has suddenly turned into a deadly game of cat and mouse. VERDICT Two emotionally damaged protagonists find much-needed healing and unexpected love in a chilling, sensual tale that features a host of skillfully developed characters and intricate, multilayered plotting. Sacramento-based Novak (The Perfect Liar) writes gripping romantic thrillers. This is the latest in her "Last Stand" series. (c) Copyright 2010.
