FBI Hostage Negotiator April Ramos becomes a hostage herself in this race to find out the truth before the real murderer gets away.

About the Book


Reeling from a negotiation gone wrong, FBI Special Agent April Ramos is caught off guard when a frazzled young woman shoves a crying baby into her arms, then disappears. Worry for the child’s safety quickly turns to fear when a man claiming to be the girl’s father abducts them at gunpoint. April puts her hostage negotiation skills to use to learn more about who she’s dealing with: Jason Snyder, a fugitive accused of murder.

As Jason spins a tall tale about being framed for the killing of his business partner, April must sort through his claims to find the truth. A truth that becomes all the more evident after April overhears a conversation between Jason and the local sheriff and realizes something more sinister may be happening in their small town of Sweet Briar, Texas. But aligning herself with a known fugitive to uncover the burden of proof could cost April her job . . . or worse, her life and the lives of other innocent people.

“Mills has added yet another winner to her growing roster of romantic thrillers, perhaps the best one yet.” - Gail Welborn
Readers can count on being glued to the pages late into the night--as 'just one more chapter' turns into 'can't stop now.'
Crackling dialogue and heart-stopping plotlines are the hallmarks of Mills's thrillers.
Put on a fresh pot of coffee before you start this one because you’re not going to want to sleep until the suspense ride is over. You might want to grab a safety harness while you’re at it—you’re going to need it!
A suspense-packed story that will keep readers captivated until the very last page.
DiAnn Mills has raised the bar for romantic suspense yet again. Good thing she continues to write such powerful novels.
