Ellery O'Brien is a news anchor for a major programme in Washington DC.

I liked this book. It was very suspenseful due to the fact that the heroine was too stubborn to leave the house when anyone else probably would have. But I liked Ellery anyway, and Clint more than made up for any deficits on her part. As I read, I kept trying to think of a word to explain the romance because it was different than those I've read recently.

This book was one of the worst I ever read. The heroine was TSTL and I was so upset I wrote a nice letter to the publisher about this book, and sent this back to the publishing house. I have read thousands of books, and this ranks in the top 5 of one of the worst books I ever read.
It was ok, but too many things were happening to the heroine one right after the other. Didn't seem quite realistic.

Thrilling but....
This book didn't translate well on my Nook, the formatting and font had problems. I couldn't finish and will not rate.
It was the realm of mindless reading a James Patterson novel...
