Many thanks to publisher Bookouture for my spot on this Blog Tour.
What the freak!! This was one book which started with a bang, the kidnapping of a Senator’s children and drugging his wife and ended up with FBI Agent Max Carter finding the truth including the skeletons in the cupboards.
My first book by Ed James, and I enjoyed it completely. An action packed story with Max racing against time to bring back the kids made me stick to my kindle. The kidnappers didn’t want money, they wanted something more which made me all the more eager to know the senator’s secrets.
Max Carter was delectable, he was bold and intelligent, sauve and interesting. I was quite enamored by him in the entire book. Excitement coursed through me with every word of the prose, and each chapter ratcheted up the suspense. I love books which can thrill me so much. The plot lines seemed seamless as they were strategized well.
The author knew how to keep my pulse racing, and that was what made this book an absolutely fun filled ride… What a way to start my weekend.
I received a free ARC from NetGalley and publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

Megan Holliday opens her eyes and finds herself slumped on her doorstep. The last thing she remembers is being in the car with her two kids. She sees a handwritten note on her lap – Don’t call the police. It’s then that she realises her car is missing, and her children are gone…
Leading the FBI’s Child Abduction Rapid Deployment team, FBI agent Max Carter will stop at nothing to find children taken from their families. After all, he was once one of those taken children, so he knows exactly what’s at stake. When he hears that a young senator’s two children have been abducted and their mother left for dead, he races to the Holliday family home in Washington State.
Facing a wall of police cruisers and blacked-out SUVs, Carter quickly uncovers the facts. Megan Holliday was ambushed by a man with a gun as she returned home from taking her kids out for ice cream. Bound and drugged, the attacker left her unconscious on the doorstep with the sinister note on her lap.
As Senator Christopher Holliday walks through the halls of the US Federal Building in Seattle, his phone beeps with an alert. Frustrated by the interruption, he takes a cursory glance and is horrified by the image on the screen – his two children, Brandon and Avery, unconscious. The message he gets simply reads Meet me or they die.
When Agent Carter tries to make contact with the busy senator, it seems the politician has gone missing, fleeing from the Federal Building and abandoning his distraught wife. If Carter knows one thing, it’s that Holliday has something to hide. And he just became Carter’s prime suspect.
