Unbelievably entertaining; I can't wait for Charlie's next adventure.
Nothing is as it seems in this relentless thriller. First we meet the young and beautiful actress Lane, whose career is on the upswing after a slump. the slump, as it's slowly revealed, was caused by bad deeds Lane covered up and with which she cannot live. And as it turns out, other powerful entities can't let her live as long as there is a chance Lane will seek absolution. Believing Lane is on the verge of confession, killers come for her but Lane lives through the first attempt on her life by seeking shelter in the unoccupied home of a friend.
Charlie left quasi police work behind because he feels responsible for the deaths of his best friend and that friend's family. Now, he is a house sitter, arriving at a certain unoccupied house only to be surprised by - you guessed it - Lane, who tries to kill him, thinking he is her assassin. Charlie reluctantly comes to believe that people truly are trying to kill them, if only because he comes to in a body bag on the living room floor next to another body.
Charlie and Lane join forces, and what a force they make; Charlie has unusual gifts he puts to good use and Lane finds the absolution she seeks. My husband can hardly wait to read this book since I could NOT put it down and because I laughed so much. I love this author and read everything he writes -- pick this up and you'll find yourself doing the same thing.
