When Lizzie Rush uncovers evidence that thrill-seeking billionaire Norman Estabrook may be at the center of an international criminal network, she finds herself playing a dangerous game of cat and mouse. Raised in the elite world of her hotelier family, educated in reality by her spy father, Lizzie is the perfect choice to slowly amass information that will take down Estabrook. But no good deed goes unpunished. Despite Norman's arrest, Lizzie knows she's not safe. Estabrook will stop at nothing to exact revenge against the people who took him down--unless she stops him first. When she learns of a bomb that's about to go off in Boston, her instincts are proven right. But her warning doesn't come quickly enough. One detective is seriously injured in the blast and another, the FBI director's daughter, disappears. Then intelligence officer Will Davenport arrives with a single, simple message: Norman Estabrook is gone. Lizzie doesn't know how Will found her or whose side he's on, but she does know he can help her prevent the killers from striking again.
Bestseller Neggers's third FBI romantic suspense novel lacks the Celtic charm and passion of its predecessor, 2008's The Angel. Norman Estabrook, "a thrill-seeking billionaire," is confined to his Montana ranch after his arrest on suspicion of money laundering and aiding drug traffickers. Estabrook yearns to kill FBI director John March and special agent Simon Cahill as well as catch the anonymous snitch, hotelier Lizzie Rush, who turned him in. Rush has flown to Ireland to warn Kiera Sullivan, Cahill's lover, that their lives are in danger, but her mission gets complicated when she runs into Lord Will Davenport, an attractive SIS agent. In Boston, March's homicide detective daughter, Abigail Browning, goes missing after Estabrook's cohorts bomb the triple-decker house where she lives with her fiance. Neggers juggles the developing romance between Davenport and Rush with standard search and rescue fare as this foggy manhunt rumbles to a predictable conclusion. (July) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
