Sometimes disaster is simply a matter of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Take Addison Roberts, for example: it is a deadly coincidence that in a crowded parking lot one day, she catches the eye of a dangerous criminal on the run. In his desperation to evade the police, what he needs is a way out—and Addison and her car are his ticket to escape.

Lieutenant Chase Roberts, on leave from his military assignment, is anxious to be reunited with his wife. Yet as night falls and Addison fails to appear, Chase feels a rising sense of foreboding. Hours quickly become days as he desperately works with authorities to find the woman he loves. But after being named a person of interest, Chase is warned away from the investigation—a mandate he ignores. Chase will stop at nothing to find his wife, and what he ultimately discovers is terrifying: Addison has been carjacked by a man who has killed before and has no scruples about killing again . . .

I love suspense and this book delivers! Eddie is a desperate man and, unfortunately, Addison crosses paths with him on the wrong day. When her husband, Chase, realizes she's missing, he's willing to do whatever he needs to in order to get her home safely.

I love how this story unfolded. It switches back and forth between Eddie & Addison and Chase. It was interesting to see how Chase went from having no idea of what was happening to learning the horrible truth of the situation his wife was in. The scenes with Eddie were tense since he's a pretty evil guy so I liked switching to Chase to get a break. Addison is smart, tough, and a fighter. She handles the situation in a much better way than I would. 

This is the type of book that made me think about how I would react in the same situation--either as Chase or Addison (the answer is that I wouldn't handle it nearly as well as either one of them). I enjoyed getting to know both of these characters. I hope there will be more stories about them in the future! If you enjoy action/suspense novels, this is one you will definitely want to read!

I love when a book allows me to 'try' and walk in the character's shoes. Great review.
