Cults, intrigue, kidnapping, and mystery...all elements of a good book. Eleri has a second chance to work for the FBI. Donovan, the other main character, has his own secrets to hide. The two must work together and find a way to trust each other despite several warning signs. The book begins with a bang and the reader will find it easy to keep turning the pages. Eleri was a fun character to get to know. She was smart, agile, and quirky. I could see her being fun to know in real life. Donovan was a little harder to get to know. He was more stand-offish and had an air of mystery about him. The part I enjoyed the most was when the author delved into the procedural aspects of the FBI division. This book is recommended to adult readers.
