This is one of the times when I wish Lucas wasn't so lucky.

Who doesn't remember Clara Rinker? She was the one that got away. A killer for hire that was created and used by the St. Louis mob. She was the best at what she did, then she met Lucas, even danced with him, and she was almost able to beat him. She disappeared without a trace and the FBI had nowhere to go.

Years later, Clara is back on the FBI watch. Clara has been hiding in Mexico, she was in love and was pregnant when someone shot and killed her boyfriend, the son of a drug lord. They shoot her too and she loses her baby. The FBI will ask Lucas for help in tracking her. They believe she is coming back to the USA to seek revenge and they know he can help capture her and put her away for good. Lucas who is in the middle of a house renovation and wedding planning jumps at the opportunity to have another go at Clara.

This one was so well done! We know some of the FBI characters and Lucas meets a few more ex-cops that help with the investigation. The pace is fast and the twists are good ones.

Clara's character made me sad. She has lost everything and she has been used and manipulated for years. She was turned into a killer after years of abuse by men. She never had a chance.

Darn Iowa Kid.

Laurie Murphy Great review, Sheyla! I really liked the Clara Rinker character and thought in some alternate universe she and Davenport could have gotten together.

It's a good one because she is such an interesting character and in a different world, Lucas and she could have been something.

I love this character now but at the beginning, I didn't. I also love his friends, the camaraderie they have.
