"Lizette Henry wakes up one morning and makes a terrifying discovery: She doesn't recognize the face she sees in the mirror. She remembers what she looks like, but her reflection is someone else's. To add to the shock, two years seem to have disappeared from her life. Someone has gone to great and inexplicable lengths to keep those missing years hidden forever. But the past always finds a way to return. Strange memories soon begin to surface and, along with them, some unusual skills and talents that Lizette hasn't a clue about acquiring. Sensing that she's being monitored, Lizette suddenly knows how to search for bugs in her house and tracking devices in her car. What's more, she can elude surveillance--like a trained agent. Enter a mysterious and seductive stranger named Xavier, who claims he wants to help--but who triggers disturbing images of an unspeakable crime of which Lizette may or may not be the perpetrator. With memories returning, she suddenly becomes a target of anonymous assassins. On the run with nowhere to hide, Lizette has no choice but to rely on Xavier, a strong and magnetic man she doesn't trust, with a powerful attraction she cannot resist. As murky waters become clear, Lizette confronts a conspiracy that is treacherous and far-reaching and a truth that, once revealed, may silence her and Xavier once and for all."--Dust jacket flap.

This book was truly bad. The first chapter was useless and turned out to have little bearing on the book - it actually confused the reader. This story would have been a lot better if it had been strung out through the book to make a more believable ending.

I liked this book a lot better than some of the other commenters did, but I would agree that it wasn't as good as some of Howard's past novels and the ending felt like it was missing something. It definitely took twists and turns that I didn't expect and kept me on the edge of my seat with suspense. I would recommend this one!

A slow start but not exactly predictable like I thought, The ending was kind of abrupt

Linda Howard spins a fantastic tale that draws you in so you don't want to put it down for anything!

I have read every book by Linda Howard and waited a long time for my hold.
Soooooooooo disappointing! I can't believe how b-o-o-o-r-r-r-ing this is, right from the beginning.
This is the first time I have ever given up on a book, especially by Linda Howard, and I just (tried) to start reading it today. I am not wasting my time reading the book.
