Rhea always knew she worked for a powerful men, but she didn’t understand the full scope of their influence until she quit her job—or tried to.
The clandestine group that calls themselves The Fours doesn’t accept two-week’s notice from employees. Instead, they’re demanding Rhea perform a final task of their choosing to earn a life free from their demands.
Rhea knows whatever The Fours ask of her will be unlike any challenge she’s ever faced. She’s prepared for the worst, but what she’s about to learn is that groups like The Fours are a secret for a reason.
Because no one gets to walk away from them. Not even Rhea.
This is the sixth book in this series and the first one I have read. I would say it definitely works well as a standalone. The author gives enough background that I felt like I knew what was happening, but also want to read all the other books in the series to get a more complete picture of what happened. Because, WOW!!
It starts out intense and doesn't let up the entire time! Rhea starts out in an impossible situation and I couldn't wait to see how this story would unfold. She had to figure things out quickly and make tough choices because she was up against tight deadlines. The book basically takes place in one day and there is a lot that happens.
I love how it ties in to Pimpernel and answered some questions I had about that book when I finished it, and now I want to read it again. (You can learn more about it and read my review here.) I'm looking forward to reading what Ms. Pratt comes up with next and hope there will be more Pimpernel soon!!
Author Sheralyn Pratt
Sheralyn was born at an early age, with 10 fingers and 10 toes. She is proud to report that she currently retains all 20 digits. Described by one reviewer as "the bomb dot com" (url already claimed... bummer), Sheralyn has been a karate instructor, musical theater performer, a beach bum, freelance writer, nomadic traveler, and, yes, a private investigator. At the moment she enjoys working with and training her dog to give the poor thing breaks from sitting and Sheralyn's feet with the unbearable task of watching someone write a book.
Really, and you thought your job was bad!
Sheralyn currently resides in Salt Lake City, Utah, although as people who know her can attest to, that is subject to change at any time ;)
