Another great book by Ms. Coulter. Not quite as entertaining as The Cove" or "The Maze" but still very enjoyable. The only thing that irritates me about these books is that people fall in love like the first week they know each other. I mean what is that?" ( )

A good suspense story with a very intense beginning. The plot got complex but didn't make much progress in solving the main problem. The little romance it had was rather abrupt. Judge Ramsey rescues a little girl who has been badly beaten then he is discovered by her mother Molly.

Enjoyable. Fast paced. A different feel from CC's historicals or 80s romances. ( )

Book description
Judge Ramsey Hunt has fled to the Colorado Mountains to recuperate after being forced to shoot a man during a melee in his courtroom. But his dream of peace and quiet is shattered when he discovers an unconscious, beaten, and sexually abused little girl who is too traumatized to speak. Reluctant to subject her to any more terror, Ramsey refrains from going to the authorities and cares for her himself. But once again, violence intrudes, first when two gunmen attempt to take the girl, and then when her mother, Molly, appears, ready to kill the man she believes is the kidnapper. Miraculously, Emma regains her voice in the nick of time, so Molly and Ramsey join forces and attempt to solve the mystery of her abduction. Emma is a target for any of a number of reasons--her father is a famous rock star with a gambling problem, and her grandfather is a Chicago Mob boss--and Coulter, who doesn't stint on humor or romance, keeps readers guessing.
