Former FBI agent Riley embarks on a heart-stopping adventure starting in the San Juan Islands, her beloved but resentful teen son in tow...and accompanied by a possibly dangerous stranger and his daughter. The alchemy of this foursome adds an element of family to this fast-paced thriller.
Another page-turner from Kathi Oram Peterson!
Riley Scott was an agent for the FBI, her life was altered by Maksimillian Petruso from the Russian Mafia. He left physical and emotional scars and haunts her even after she killed him. Her past becomes her present when she meets his illegitimate son on a ferry. She was leaving her old life behind to begin a new one on Agate Island. Life was supposed to be less stressful and she and her son were going to get to know one another and strengthen their relationship.
She couldn't outrun the past, it came to look for her. She and Matthew Taggert, the son of Maksimillian are now on the run. To complicate matters, Riley's son and Matthews's daughter are with them. They know that the only way to stop the mafia is to stop being the hunted and do the hunting themselves.
There are so many layers of a relationship displayed in this book. It has emotional depth, as well as a fast paces story line. I liked the characters and how they displayed integrity in tough situations. They made a good team as they relied on each others strengths and worked together. The kids were one thing that held their little group together. They could be friends without prejudice and help their parents follow their lead.
This book contains violence.

While going to Agate Island, where she will begin her new job, she spotted the man of her nightmares on the ferry. She must be hallucinating! She know he is dead!
Her very angry son makes a new friend - the only friend he now has - on the ferry trip to his new home. When meeting the girl's father, she "freaks out" and refuses for him to further pursue his friendship with her. The son rebels.
With the ensuing problems, Riley Scott (ex-FBI) and Matthew Taggart (girl's dad) discovers, among those they thought they could trust, there was at least one "mole". They must put aside their own issues toward each other to seek safety for their children. They must then learn to trust each other if the were to ever again to enjoy a life with their son and daughter.
There were many adventures and unexpected "twists" in a race against time to save those most precious to them. The reader will be anxiously turning pages until the very end of the book.
The characters were developed in such a real way that one felt like one was in the story with them. The events were so descriptive, they were very easily visualized. The Book Cover was very creative yet plain. It was not an "eye-catcher" the normal "browser" would notice. The Title was very well "fitted" to the story content.
The only real negative, is at times it felt a little repetitive.
This earns a Four and a Half Stars rating.
*This was gifted me with no suggestion of a positive review. This is my honest review.
Riley is such a great character. I love her tenacity. She goes after what she knows will protect her family and she doesn't stop until she's taken care of the problem. That gets her into all sorts of bad situations. Most of them, you actually just see as flashbacks in this book. I'm kind of amazed at all she was able to do with her health issues she has. I loved the way she was such a great mom to Jeremiah, even though he thought she was ruining his whole life. She's one of my favorite characters I've read about recently.
Then there's Matthew. I loved that you see the story through his eyes as well. It really gives a full picture of everything going on. Matthew is a single dad, trying to do his best to be both parents to his daughter, Aleksa. I loved the strength of his character, he had to do hard things when his life and Aleksa's were on the line.
The plot of this one is crazy! There's always something crazy going on. Always someone trying to kill the main characters. It really hooks you and pulls you in.
And it doesn't hurt anything that the plot starts out in one of the most beautiful parts of the world. The San Juan Islands are somewhere we went on our vacation last summer, so I had no problem picturing their beauty and imagining being there again.
I loved everything about this book! You should check it out!
