muscle tone in his arms. He had come a long way-but in the wrong
had gone to Mexico, but nobody knew why-not even John himself. He
was found alongside a deserted highway, shot. Whoever had shot him
had probably assumed he was dead, but he was too stubborn to die
without a fight. What was taken from him was his memory. He had

isn't long before sparks start to fly between Katie and John. She
is close enough to get to the information she needs for the FBI
investigation, and soon John begins to trust her and confides in
her about the missing money. He wants to know what happened and
why as much as anyone else. The FBI is also trying to unravel the
murder of one of John's employees, which seems to be drug-related.
They are convinced that John went to Mexico to get rid of the employee.
of the remaining employees of John's business are determined to
force John out of his position as the head of the company. John's
brother is torn between his insecurity about John's ability to function
effectively and his loyalty to the family.
is a fast-paced thrilling adventure, with a romance that will have
you cheering for the twosome. It will have you sitting on the edge
of your chair and you won't want to set it down until you turn the
last page. Very highly recommended.
