Former FBI Special Agent Sloane Burbank survived a life-threatening injury sustained in the line of duty, only to face leaving a job she loves in order to recuperate. As an independent consultant, she now uses her specialized skills to train law enforcement and private organizations in crisis resolution. But when one of her closest childhood friends mysteriously disappears, and the woman’s devastated parents beg for her help, Sloane takes the case - even though her ex-lover Derek Parker is the FBI agent in charge. Special Agent Derek Parker, now assigned to the Asian Criminal Enterprise Task Force in the FBI’s New York Field Office, has no time to spare for a year-old case he sees as a dead end - especially since it would mean working with a woman he never expected to see again. He’s pursuing the leader of a Chinese gang and trying to solve a series of grisly murders in Chinatown, so he initially offers Sloane the case files and minimal cooperation. But as more women disappear and others turn up brutally murdered, Derek’s priorities shift, and he and Sloane come to the sickening realization that these random crimes are linked to the same crazed killer. No one can anticipate when he will strike again, but when Sloane becomes the target of the killer’s twisted obsession, it’s clear that his ultimate fantasy is even more psychotic than either of them ever imagined.

Kane's thriller features former FBI agent turned private investigator Sloane Burbank. Burbank becomes involved in an investigation surrounding a bizarre serial killer, only to become the killer's next target. Narrator Joyce Bean delivers a stirring yet underplayed performance that works especially well combined with Kane's terse prose. Bean portrays a multilayered protagonist who is strong and commanding but who also feels regret, passion, and, ultimately, terror. Delivering the story at a solid pace, Bean offers genuine reactions from characters who are honest and realistic. Listeners will be captivated from the start as Bean demonstrates her gift for creating and building exquisite tension. L.B. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine
