Inhaltsangabe

In this gripping thriller, an ex-agent on the run from her former employers must take one more case to clear her name and save her life.

She used to work for the US government, but very few people ever knew that. An expert in her field, she was one of the darkest secrets of an agency so clandestine it doesn't even have a name. And when they decided she was a liability, they came for her without warning.

Now she rarely stays in the same place or uses the same name for long. They've killed the only other person she trusted, but something she knows still poses a threat. They want her dead, and soon.

When her former handler offers her a way out, she realises it's her only chance to erase the giant target on her back. But it means taking one last job for her ex-employers. To her horror, the information she acquires only makes her situation more dangerous.

Resolving to meet the threat head-on, she prepares for the toughest fight of her life but finds herself falling for a man who can only complicate her likelihood of survival. As she sees her choices being rapidly whittled down, she must apply her unique talents in ways she never dreamed of.

In this tautly plotted novel, Meyer creates a fierce and fascinating new heroine with a very specialised skill set. And she shows once again why she's one of the world's best-selling authors.

This book is NOT a Thriller!

This book is definitely not a Thriller! It should be listed under ROMANCE! I actually expected a lot more. I loved the Twilight books but was quite disappointed from this one. First because I expected a Thriller and it wasn't one and second because the story was very flat and sometimes even disturbing. Not very imaginative nor very gripping but very wordily....

A definitively fast paced spy novel, very different Meyer book...

This was a Clancy type spy book , viewed the female perspective.
Am ready for the sequel already...All the characters seem very real/have good depth. Adding the interesting interaction with the dogs made you feel as if not just 2 bit 3 different storylines were running parallel to each other. Can reccomend for both fe/male readers. Make sure you have time to finish reading once you begin...

Folter = legitimes Mittel zum Zweck

Hätte ich mal auf Eva hier gehört! Ich konnte es mir ja nicht vorstellen und hoffte bis zum Ende auf eine Wendung diesbezüglich aber nein, Folter wird hier tatsächlich als zwar grausames aber völlig legitimes Mittel zum Zweck (viele Menschen retten) verkauft. Wer das nicht ganz so sieht wird keine rechte Freude am Hörbuch haben.

Great Story

I've read her other books and really loved them. This one is a little different. We still experience the story from the viewpoint of the protagonist following her thoughts like in the other books. But this book isn't a lovestory (although that is happening too) it's a spystory with lots of action.
A gripping story that's even more enjoyable the second time around.
And it should definetly shut those up who have criticized Stefenie Mayer for her old fashioned gender roles. If this protagonist isn't a strong woman, I don't know who is.
Unfortunately the book feels like it was written in a hurry and she didn't take the time to work out some of the kinks. But that doesn't diminish the entertainment. If you don't expect a literary masterpiece you'll get to enjoy a really good story.

Fesselnd von Beginn bis zum Ende

Ich habe zu dem Hörbuch das Buch gelesen und ohne die tolle Arbeit von Ellen Archer hätte ich es bestimmt nur bedingt genießen können. Von der ersten Sekunde an hat mich das Buch mit seiner Geschichte gefesselt und bis zum Ende nicht los gelassen. Ich kann es nur weiterempfehlen.

gets veeeery cheesy at one point.

story starts very tense and with a lot of potential then drifts off to a romance. the finale is good again.

Interessante Story mit einigen Längen

Viel Liebe in brutalem Umfeld von Folterspezialisten, CIA-Agenten etc.. Man will auf jeden Fall erfahren, wie es ausgeht. Manche Wendung ist bewusst überraschend gestaltet.
