From the author of Fatal Intent comes another riveting romantic suspense novel. More
“A very descriptive story that makes you feel like you have been transported to the thick humid airs of South-East Asia . . . reminded me of the movie Romancing the Stone, but serious and in Cambodia. A great read and a great escape to the wilds of the tropical jungles of South-East Asia, the beautiful ruins of Siem Reap.” —Hannah's Words Blog
A ruthless band of smugglers will stop at nothing to strip Cambodia of its priceless artifacts, even if it means using and killing female tourists. Journalist Claire Linton knows she’s on to the story of a lifetime. But for Claire, it’s personal too: long before her “Uncle Jack” came to the U.S., he was held captive in the nightmarish killing fields of Cambodia, and Claire senses there might be a connection between that long-ago bloody history and the dark crimes plaguing the country today.
Simon Trent is a burnt-out Interpol agent who quit the service and was forced to disappear after his last case turned fatal. But with the resurgence in smuggling and all signs pointing to the man who once escaped his grasp, he comes out of hiding to finish the job that’s haunted him for years. What he doesn’t see coming is Claire, the beautiful and headstrong reporter who may be a threat to his case—and to his heart.
As Claire and Simon reluctantly join forces to unravel a mystery that reaches deep into her family history and may be his only chance at redemption, they must fight to stay one step ahead of a brutal killer—and one step away from the dangerous feelings building between them.
