Devon Brady is a devoted veterinarian working in a makeshift hospital on a remote search and rescue mission. When a man arrives with his wounded black Lab named Ned, Devon has no idea that she’s about to be plunged into a whirlwind of terror and destruction…

Jude Marrock is out for revenge—and he has no choice but to involve Devon in a high-stakes cat-and-mouse game with an escalating body count. She doesn’t trust Jude one bit… but when the shots start flying and friends start falling, Devon finds herself with nowhere else to run. And there are innocent lives, both human and animal, at stake, including Ned and his mysterious pack. Is Jude her salvation or her damnation?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great read leaves you wanting more ! Iris Johansen fans will already know about her great books but if you havent read this book yet it is a must. Great suspense as well as a love interest and a great bunch of animals involved. This book leaves you wanting more as do most of her books ! If we could just get her to write faster .

Rated 3 out of 5 by from pretty good Another good read by IJ. If you're a fan, you'll see that the Logan's are back in this book - even if it's a small part. The main characters are good and the plot line strong. The pace is pretty steady but not at the "I can't put it down" speed. I look forward to reading the next book, "Deadlock".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great story By Iris Johansen Loved this. Couldn't put it down and lost lots of sleep. Intriguing characters that will stay with you long after the story has ended. I thought the story was unique in that this time Iris Johansen put in a little paranormal which was a nice twist especially since it was believable. Suspense and a love story-- what a journey!

Read from the Book

Chapter One Santa Marina Island 1:30 A.M.   " YOU’RE NOT GOING TO FIND anyone, you crazy dog." Jude Marrok climbed over another pile of rubble, trying to keep up with the black Lab. "And I’m not going to keep on chasing after you. I’ll give you fifteen more minutes. After that, I’m calling the helicopter."   Ned didn’t even look back as he sniffed desperately at the remains of houses toppled by the earthquake. He was making soft, whimpering noises as he searched the ruins for life.   Marrok muttered a curse beneath his breath. Dammit, he should have taken the dog down to the main rescue area after they’d been dropped by the helicopter in the foothills. This side of the mountain had already been searched by the canine rescue teams.   When the volcano on this small Caribbean island had caused a 7.5 earthquake six days ago, it had devastated the two villages on both slopes of the mountain. The rescue teams had worked tirelessly on both villages, but after no one was found, they had abandoned this smaller village to concentrate on the one on the far side of the mountain. His dog, Ned, had refused to go to the other side of the mountain and insisted on going to the now- deserted village, and Marrok had gone along with him. Most of the time the Lab’s instincts were pretty good, and it wasn’t that unusual for him to find survivors after other rescue teams had abandoned hope. But they’d been searching for two h
