In the path of a devastating hurricane, three very different women find themselves trapped in the elevator of a high-rise office building. All three conceal shattering secrets—unaware that their secrets center on the same man. The betrayed wife, eager to confront her faithless husband, with rage in her heart and a gun in her pocket… The determined mistress, finally ready to tell her lover she wants marriage and a family… The fugitive cleaning woman, tormented by the darkest secret of all… As the storm rages ever closer, these three must unite to fight for their lives in the greatest test of courage—and faith—any woman could ever face.

Prolific novelist Hunt knows how to hold a reader's interest, and her latest
yarn is no exception. As Hurricane Felix races toward Tampa, three women's
paths unexpectedly converge when they're marooned in an elevator. The action
takes place over the course of one tension-packed day. Michelle Tilson is a
smart, 33-year-old headhunter who is apt to fudge the truth in the interests
of more business. She's in a passionate relationship with a widower, who's
reluctant to introduce her to his three children. Michelle's biological clock
is ticking, and when she discovers she is pregnant, she's ready to press for a
commitment. When Michelle boards the elevator to give her lover the
news-instead of fleeing the impending disaster-she's joined by office cleaner
Isabel Suarez, who has a frightening secret, and Gina Rossman, who is on her
way to confront her workaholic husband about his extramarital affair. Trapped,
the women discuss relationships and faith, and make some startling
discoveries. Although the idea of characters stuck in an elevator is nothing
new, Hunt packs the maximum amount of drama into her story, and the pages turn
quickly. The present tense narration lends urgency as the perspective switches
among various characters. Readers may decide to take the stairs after
finishing this thriller. (July) Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
