This is the first Eva Driscoll thriller and what a pulsating read it is. By the end I felt quite breathless.

Push the accelerator to the floor and hang on. This is one fast-paced, action packed ride as CIA agent, Eva Driscoll, finds herself the hunted instead of the hunter. Used to clearing up problems covertly, she knows something is wrong the moment her brother dies. Refusing to believe he killed himself, she soon discovers other members of his army unit have also died suddenly. She saves Rees Colback, the last member of the unit, and together they set out to discover who’s trying to destroy them and why.

Their search for the truth is carried out on the run, fighting for their lives against the agencies that were once her employers. But Eva’s too smart to run and takes the fight to the enemy, despite the odds against her for a furious climax that still manages a neat twist.

It’s action all the way. The pace is frenetic, the characters sharp and believable, and the story never sags or lets up, leading you to a breathless climax. While this isn’t my usual kind of read, I was caught up in the story from the opening pages and enjoyed every minute.

If you like an action packed thriller where the good guys are up against overwhelming odds, you should enjoy this. And with more books in the series, there’s plenty to look forward to.


There’s only so long you can run for your life.

Eva Driscoll is used to chasing down bad guys, but now the bad guys are chasing her. She knows they won’t stop until she’s dead.

After her brother is killed in a faked suicide, Driscoll teams up with ex-soldier Rees Colback, the one person who can help her find answers. Together they’re determined to uncover why members of his Special Forces squad are dying in mysterious circumstances.

But with every agency in the country in hot pursuit, their only choice is to flee.

The clock is ticking. They can’t run forever. It’s time to make a choice: kill or be killed…
