No Place to Hide

Author: Lynette Eason
Publisher: Revell
May 2015
ISBN:  978-0800722104
Genre: Romantic Suspense

She'll defend her friend until the bitter end--but is she in over her head?

It's not every day you see your childhood friend and onetime crush on national news. Jackie Sellers just wishes it were under different circumstances. She can't believe that Ian Lockwood is wanted in connection with a terrorist plot, and she's determined to find him and help him clear his name. Unfortunately, she's not the only one looking for him. The FBI wants him captured. The bad guys want him dead. Ian just wants to stay alive long enough to prove his innocence and prevent a catastrophe.

Lynette Eason delivers nonstop action as Jackie and Ian travel a dangerous road--one that may lead straight to destruction.

NO PLACE TO HIDE is the third book in Ms. Eason’s newest series, Hidden Identity, but it easily stands alone. Fans will want to read No One to Trust and Nowhere to Turn though. NO PLACE TO HIDE is different, in that neither Jackie nor Ian are police or FBI (though Jackie is a former officer). Different, in that the hero and heroine are the ones running from the police—and they are wanted for terrorist attacks and murder.

Ms. Eason is a very talented author. The writing was stellar and I can’t imagine the amount of research that went into this—and Ms. Eason’s brain-waves must be interesting to study as she came up with this detailed, scary, biological threat romantic suspense. I knew who some of the bad guys were, but when I though I knew who the top person was, he was taken out… so that left me starting over trying to figure out the master-mind behind it. And when it was revealed, I was surprised.

The faith message was weak, the romantic tension between Ian and Jackie was weak, but the threat and the fear were tangible. I was almost freaking out during the black moment. I think I might be afraid to go to sleep tonight…

If you are a fan of romantic suspense, you might be interested in NO PLACE TO HIDE.
