My Review

5/5 Stars

Years ago, Victoria’s husband was killed by the mob. In order to protect themselves, Victoria and her son were put into witness protection. The Russian mob find them though and from there, Victoria has no choice but to take her son on a game of cat and mouse in order to survive.

So Victoria went from 0 to 100 real fast. She went from an average domestic mom to a badass in the span of a single chapter. She’s not just an average mom, she’s a former FBI agent, and isn’t afraid to use her training. There was plenty of action and suspense throughout this entire story, and I was hooked on every moment of it.

The narration was okay, but I didn’t much care for the female voices.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
