Review by Zare
Miles was a private investigator in his past life – life before he was taken into witness protection program. Celeste is a gifted programmer that had some truly traumatic experiences. Allison is a psychiatrist that is treating both of them (of course unknown to them both) - after her office is bombed, chain of events is triggered that will bring Miles and Celeste together while they try to figure out why are there being followed by a sociopath killer bend on finding missing data – presumably stolen from the top secret facility by their therapist.Now, all this seems as a rather standard “thriller” story, am I right? But wait, there is more - catch here is that both Miles and Celeste are suffering from severe trauma, PTSD, and have some serious issues to deal with. They need doctor’s help and they need it quick because placed under stress of being hunted down they themselves do not know what their reaction will be like.From the first page to the last action is non stop. Great thriller – second Abbott’s book I read so far (and made me hunting for the rest :))Recommended.
