For years Allie flourishes &until the day her cover is blown and the truth comes tumbling out. Once again she is on the run, with her own life and those of her loved ones at stake. But this time she will not be a pawn. This time she will use her finely honed gift to end the threat that began with her familys betrayal. From perfect target to perfect witness, Allie Girard is ready to take on the past even if it kills her.
Out of nowhere, or so she believes, a man by the name of Andre Mandak appears. He kills her pursuersbut thats not nearly enough for Teresa to trust him. It is his promise to get her into Witness Protection, along with his mind-blowing ability to help her control her gift before it consumes her, that convinces Teresa Casali to become Allie Girard. Living a normal life with a new family, she shuts the door to the past &although Mandak is clear: when the time is right, he too will benefit from her powers.
When Teresa Casali was young she discovered she had a strange gift: the ability to read peoples memories. But the gift seemed more like a curse as her mob boss father used her to gain the upper hand in his world of corruption and violence. Exposed by her own family to the darkest impulses of mankind, Teresa is alone and unprotected. She realizes that if she is to survive, she has to run.
She had the perfect life. She had the perfect cover. She was the perfect witness. Until they found her.

I barely made it through about 40 pages before I had to throw in the towel on this one. Iris Johansen used to be one of my favorite authors, but this one was such a disappointment. The premise is really interesting but unfortunately the characters and the dialog do not deliver. Don't waste your time on it.

100 pages read and was not able to get into the story. I love Iris Johansen but not this one.

Thought this book would be better than it was. An OK read but I didn't much care for the plot nor the characters. Repetition and bland dialogue. What is it with authors using one word, italicized descriptions? I would rather they describe what has happened rather than insert a word. Feels like you are reading a script and not a book. I wouldn't wait for this book... Not worth it.

I usually love this writers stories, but this one is really slow.
I have finally given up after reading three forth of it, just too much repeating in the dialog, which in the end makes it boring. This could have been written with half the amount of pages.

Not part of her series, but it was a good read.
