About The Book

A price on her head, and just 48 hours to expose the truth, and save her family…
Single-mother bounty hunter Lori Anderson has finally got her family back together, but her new-found happiness is shattered when she’s snatched by the Miami Mob, who they want her dead. But rather than a bullet, they offer her a job: find the Mob’s ‘numbers man’ – Carlton North – who’s in protective custody after being forced to turn federal witness against them. If Lori succeeds, they’ll wipe the slate clean and the price on her head – and those of her family – will be removed. If she fails, they die.
With only 48 hours before North is due to appear in court, Lori sets across Florida, racing against the clock to find him, and save her family…


My Thoughts

When you start one of Lori’s adventures, you know that there will be action, bullets and an addictive plot to keep any reader glued to every page of the story till the end; because if you haven’t read any of the Lori Anderson adventures, what are you waiting for?
Lori’s adventures are all connected, and this one maybe is the most crucial book of the stories so far, after the two previous books with a lot of twisted stories, she will have to face her past, the mob will want “eye for an eye” for her husband’s death. And she will have to go against her own rules if she wants to keep her family safe; but Lori will never disappoint her fans. She is brave, bold and loyal to her loved ones; she is not perfect, but at every turn she has to face she wakes up stronger and ready to fight again, she is just a fiction character but we should remember her in our worst moments, even if our life is difficult, we never have to resign to fight!
When I start reading one of the Lori’s books I try not to read the argument before, simply enter to the story and let the adrenaline flow through my body page after page, I can assure you you’ll not get bored! That’s why I am not talking much about this book’s plot, I don’t want to do any spoilers! This case is more personal than the others, and we’ll read more about the relation between JT (Lori’s partner) and her daughter Dakota, there’s friendship and some drops of romance in the book too, but a lot of bullets and blood.
