Having read the series a couple of times in the past couple of years, I can say his is probably my favorite O'Malley book. This starts it all for me. I love Kate and Dave's story; it's truly romantic and suspenseful, and you begin to get to know the other O'Malleys.
You are immediately thrust into Kate O'Malley's world. She is a crisis negotiator with the Chicago Police Department. Dee Henderson introduces the O'Malley Family very well in the beginning of the book, setting up the subsequent O'Malley novels. The relationship developing between Kate O'Malley and Dave Richman (you'll remember him from Henderson's "Danger in the Shadows") is weaved nicely throughout. There is plenty of action, suspense, drama and even a little comedy. The characters are supremely likeable. I highly recommend every book in this series! They are all real page turners. The other O'Malley novels are: The Negotiator, The Guardian, The Truth Seeker, The Protector, The Healer, The Rescuer. Each is a wonderful read!
i loved this book! the suspense and the story line were absolutely fabulous! i completely fell in love with dave in this book, im so glad they brought him back from danger in the shadows, he is so perfect for kate. i would soo recommend it to anyone!
