No One to Trust

Author: Lynette Eason
Publisher: Revell
January 2014
ISBN: 978-0800722081
Genre: Suspense

She doesn’ t know who she’s running from—and the man she loves may be someone else entirely

Summer Abernathy wakes up one morning to find her husband missing, three men in her home intent on finding him, and the life she's been living based on a lie. Which Kyle Abernathy did she marry? The computer programmer she met in line at the bank? Or the one who was apparently using that image as a cover story?

The search for her husband--and answers--takes Summer ever deeper into a world of organized crime where people are used one moment and discarded the next. And with her deepest relationship of trust already shattered, Summer doesn't know who to believe.

Always thrilling, Lynette Eason outdoes herself in this taut, breakneck story of lies, loyalties, and love that will have readers up all night to discover the truth hidden in the shadows.

NO ONE TO TRUST is the first book in Ms. Eason’s newest series Hidden Identities. This promises to be a riveting series. I started this book and was instantly drawn into the terror that Summer must’ve been feeling to find her husband not where he was supposed to be and a stranger standing over her with a gun demanding she turn over something her husband stole.  Not only that but her husband wasn’t who she thought he was!

With only twelve hours to find the missing items, Summer tears the house apart—and only discovers her husband’s real name and information hidden away. She calls a number and discovers that her husband was in the witness protection program—and now she’s in danger.

The story spirals from there. A man and a woman on the run. Someone feeding information to bad guys. And time is running out.  As suspense goes, this is great. Edge of the seat, blood pumping, adrenaline flowing. But something about it bothers me. Maybe it’s the snakes. Maybe it’s something else I haven’t figured out yet. I don’t know. This isn’t my favorite Eason book. It is creepy. Chilling. Fans of hard-core suspense will probably love this. It is too much for me. $14.99. 336 pages. 3 stars.
