I thought Mr. Hempel’s narration was very good, his voice holds the emotion as the characters go through their day to day lives from fear to excitement. I had no trouble hearing Lelisa’s fear of the unknown not knowing who to trust, where to go or what to do next. His male and female voices where very enjoyable. I do believe there was one place where the volume changed but there are no repeats of wording and no background noises. I thought he carried off each character and their demeanors very well. He really adds and brings a lot to the story delivering a very clean and clean audio. I really enjoyed listening to Mr. Hempel’s work and look forward to listening to more of it in the future.
I thought the author did a really good job in laying out the plot with excitement, danger, thrills and a few chilling scenes. When those you trust turn against you it is hard to put your trust in anyone. Finding out your friends, co workers want you dead is very shocking. Finding the man you have been dating, one that you trust for a long time died in your place is devastating as it goes on you wonder if he is in on bring you down. My mind is blowin away when you know you must get home to clear your name with a hit man hot on your kneels wanting you dead and a cop who wants answers and wants to know what you are hiding what is a girl to do but run for her life. At some point Lelisa going to have to trust someone but who? The cop from the islands is hiding something he isn’t being up front, could he be out to killer her too? This was a fun and exciting read from the danger to the romance. Alec is one hot cop who has been to hell and back and will most likely revisit it before this story is over. The author gives you a story inside a story that really pulls you in with its mystery as well. The answer comes to you about the same time it does to Lelisa leaving you in shock wondering how anyone could be so cruel. The ending is wonderful maybe not so believable. It does leave you shocked and smiling at the same time. There are twists after twists in a dangerous game of hide and seek. Some will end up dead others will wish they were. All in all this was a very exciting read that holds your attention giving you a page turner you can’t put down.

-Typos: There were lots. Some words were missing, some added unnecessarily, some had only part of the letters, some punctuation was wrong. Why go to the trouble to write a story and then ignore so many mistakes?
-Unrealistic events: This was my biggest gripe. Much of the story was ok, but some of the events were too far out there. Example: In the beginning the killer poisoned the agent's scuba tank, then apparently followed her dive boat out to the ocean using a snorkel (??), then dived behind them - where he was spotted by the main character but no other witnesses - then swam off to disappear. Why would he follow them and put himself in danger of getting caught? Did he have to actually be there in person to see his victim succumb? Must have been a fast swimmer to keep up with the dive boat. Also much of the police work was unrealistic, by the main bad guy and his son, especially. I don't see how either of them could have done all that without getting caught, or at least raising suspicions.
-Religion: I don't mind a little religion in my stories, as long it seems to fit the story. This one was like it was thrown in from out of the blue. Suddenly the hero started spouting off gospel and giving sermons toward end of the book. Where did that come from? Someone suggested the author almost forgot to put religion in and threw it in at the last minute, and that's exactly how it felt to me, too. It just didn't fit as far as I was concerned.
Still, I mostly enjoyed the story and the mystery. It did end just a little too pat, but I've always been a sucker for a happy ending. If the author would fix the typos, clean up the story line, and work the religion more naturally into the plot then I might change my rating.
Bottom line: If you can deal with the problems I mentioned then you may like this one.
