"Master of Character Development!
As a writer myself, I think that one of the true marks of an excellent author is solid, believable character development, and in my opinion, Mimi Barbour is the master of character development. Special Agent Francesca is a complex woman who can use her martial arts skills to take down the toughest of thugs, and then spin her feminine wiles effortlessly to lure a criminal profiler to her bed. After learning who her father was from the mother who chose career over child, Francesca makes a conscious decision to meet him face-to-face no matter the outcome....
Story line development in this thriller is excellent as well. The twists and turns keep the excitement rolling until the end. As always from Ms. Barbour, a great read!"
