Goodreads:  As a top private eye turned security specialist, Jamie Sinclair has worked hard to put her broken marriage behind her. But when her lying, cheating ex-husband, army colonel Tim Thorp, calls with the news that his three-year-old daughter has been kidnapped, he begs Jamie to come find her. For the sake of the child, Jamie knows she can’t refuse. Now, despite the past, she’ll do everything in her power to bring little Brooke Thorp home alive.

Soon Jamie is back at Fort Leeds—the army base in New Jersey’s Pine Barrens where she grew up, the only child of a two-star general—chasing down leads and forging an uneasy alliance with the stern military police commander and the exacting FBI agent working Brooke’s case. But because Jamie’s father is now a U.S. senator, her recent run-in with a disturbed stalker is all over the news, and when she starts receiving gruesome threats echoing the stalker’s last words, she can’t shake the feeling that her investigation may be about more than a missing girl—and that someone very powerful is hiding something very significant . . . and very sinister.

Kritters Thoughts:  What a heart stopper!  Don't start this book without having a whole day to just read from start to end!  With just less than 250 pages, it was easy to read in one day, but even more so because this action packed, fast paced book was just hard to put down!

Jamie Sinclair is the main character and from the beginning I was rooting for her and loved following her through her adventures and the investigation.  Although Jamie Sinclair comes for a well known parent, she doesn't use it to her advantage and the minute I learned this about her, I gave her more credit.  But I did think she stupidly put herself in situations that weren't always the smartest decisions.  

There were a few investigations going on at the same time and I definitely solved one on the early side, but was still surprised by the rest.  And I felt like there were some interesting twists and turns, but it did feel jam packed.  At moments, I couldn't take a breath!  

If you love books with constant action this one to pick up and never put down!  

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel 
         (thankfully one is already written, to be reviewed on Thursday!)
