The sole survivor of a brutal crime, Reece Gilmore is on the run, desperately fighting the panic attacks and the nightmares that haunt her. She doesn't intend to stay in the sleepy town of Angel's Fist one second longer than she needs to, despite its friendly - if curious - inhabitants, and the irresistible attraction of local writer Brody. However, on a hike into the mountains she witnesses a couple having a vicious argument that culminates in murder. Faced with a lack of evidence, the authorities in Angel's Fist find it hard to believe Reece's story. But when a series of menacing events prove that someone wants her out of the way, Reece must put her trust in Brody - the one person who does believe her - to find the murderer before it's too late.
Smilepnw (USA: WA) (2008/08/22): Much better than the made for tv movie with Heather Locklear....couldn't put it down!
greywarrier (Australia) (2010/03/04): the story is typical of this ladys work-story flowed freely, tho i found the end a bit week-otherwise good read.
sar (USA: OH) (2010/07/21): This is 1 of my favorites by Nora Roberts. Great story, Great characters.
WelshHelen (United Kingdom) (2011/07/11): I loved this - a perfect book to get me reading again after a bit of a slump. Reece, Brody and, in fact, all the characters were likable, making guessing the baddie pretty difficult! The landscape really came to life in Roberts' writing as did the food :-)
I really liked Reece - far from perfect, far from daring but definitely heroic in her own way and I loved how Brody dealt with her fears.
