This one sounded really interesting from the cover and from a synopsys it might sound good. Sabrina Sullivan has been hiding out because her ex-agent father was killed in a bomb blast by a guy who has declared that he's going to take his revenge on her father's entire family. Her sister is missing, Sabrina is going to find her but she needs help, so she turns to her father's old company and finds help in the form of Zack. Tempramental but reliable, but she finds that there are lies within lies, and who can she really trust.

But it just doesn't gel. The maguffin of the hypnosis drug is overused, Zack and Sabrina don't really show any firm relationship to each other, the only tension really between them is issues of trust, not issues of love or liking. The characters themselves were quite good but they just seemed to be puppets outside of a few moments where their real selves shone through.

It's readable and not the worst, but I wouldn't be rushing to get more by Kate Donovan. ( )
