Jacintha “Jack” Cross and her husband, Gabe, are skilled penetration specialists, experts hired to hack into security systems and find vulnerabilities. After a tough assignment, Jack returns home to find her husband dead. A traumatized Jack reports the murder, but the police immediately mark her as the number-one suspect. Desperate to prove her innocence, Jack goes on the run but soon realizes that even those she holds dear may not be the allies that she thought. Ware’s (Lying Game; The It Girl) latest is a heart-pounding thriller with taut storytelling. Narrator Imogen Church gives a stunning performance, conveying the tension as Jack begins to uncover the truth about her husband’s death; she also captures Gabe, who appears in flashbacks, as both tender and serious. Church employs impeccable pacing, ensuring that as the action ramps up, listeners will be on the edge of their seats.
VERDICT Ware’s latest fast-paced thriller, enhanced by Church’s outstanding narration, does not disappoint. Fans and newcomers alike will enjoy Ware’s signature twists and turns and will root for Jack as she fights to survive.
