Then the woman is shot. Dead. Right in front of China.
A bank robbery is in process. And the robbers apparently know who she is. They call her by name.
This is how China Beckett is launched into a bizarre and horrifically violent period of her life. A period in which: 1. A scarred and psychotic bodyguard moves into her house; 2. Random people are killed in order to make her cooperate; 3. Her estranged lover returns from the dead; and 4. She finds out she is tougher than anyone thinks.
Wow, what a story. There is a man behind the curtain who is pulling the strings, manipulating everyone from the band of psychotic killers to their random victims to China and everyone she loves. We are kept guessing who that might be. Is it China's current boyfriend, the sweet fireman and former mercenary? Her ex-husband, a successful doctor who suddenly ran off to San Francisco? Or Aiden, the father of her daughter, a man she
thought had died years before in a civil war in Africa?
There's so much to like about Alicia Dean's newest suspense novel. I was rooting for China from page one because she is brave, consistently putting her child's safety above everything else. Riveted by the swift plot, I had no idea how she would rescue herself, save her child, and find the love she deserves. But I was sure she would do so because China Beckett is cool, smart, and tough as hell.
You'll have to read Without Mercy to see how one devoted mother takes a life-threatening situation into her own capable hands. And manages to turns her whole life around.
And I simply adored Aidan! (That name alone had me halfway in love!) Dark, brooding, but also wonderfully giving and loyal. His counterpart, China, was a worthy heroine. You felt sympathy for her plight while at the same time acquiring a deep admiration for her perseverance in the face of it. This was no mamby-pamby woman. She grieved, she was horrified, but she never stopped fighting.
This was one of those books you were driven to read, but didn't want to finish. The kind that pleasantly lingers long after you are finished reading. Thank you, Ms. Dean, for a great read!
Oh, and keep 'em coming, please!
It's the story of China, a young mother who'd do anything for her daughter. Anything. And her love is put to the ultimate test many times as she struggles to get out of a seemingly impossible situation, all the while trying to keep her child safe. China is gutsy without being foolish, loving without being unbelievable and totally relate-able.Dean has written a tight story with a cast of jump off the page characters and mixed in with some heart-stopping moments, you are sure to love Without Mercy if you like suspense, are a mother, or appreciate good page turners. Highly recommended!

China Beckett’s life as a working single-mother is shattered when a seemingly random bullet takes out her boss at the bank where China works. Authorities soon conclude that China, an eye-witness to the murder, is somehow involved. Was the bullet meant for China? Escalating bizarre, threatening events fuel China’s mounting fear and activate every mothering instinct in her soul. Above all else, she must protect her only child, six-year-old Emma, from an anonymous, murderous gang that terrorizes her every waking moment. Can anyone help her survive this nightmare?
Fast-paced and suspenseful, WITHOUT MERCY is a heart-thumping, nail-biting read that carries the action to its unpredictable culmination. Author, Alicia Dean, has created a modern-day horror story involving real people in a surreal situation. Guaranteed to thrill!
