As a novice FBI agent, Jackson McGraw was deeply touched by the young single mother -- a murder witness -- in his protective custody. When her baby girl was almost killed, Eloise fled -- selflessly leaving her child in his care with a note to find her a good Christian home. Now, twenty years later, the mob is obsessed with retaliation against the woman whose testimony imprisoned their late don. Jackson is determined to track Eloise down to protect her -- and reclaim two decades' worth of love.
AT LAST -- JACKSON'S STORY!!!! HE HAS BEEN THE COMMON LINK THROUGH EVERY BOOK IN THE SERIES AND I THINK THE AUTHORS DID A GREAT JOB OF GRADUALLY FEEDING US BITS OF INFORMATION ABOUT HIM, BUILDING INTEREST WITH EACH SUBSEQUENT BOOK. I WAS DEFINITELY READY FOR JACKSON'S STORY -- AND HIS REUNION WITH ELOISE. THIS IS A GREAT, ACTION-PACKED, SUSPENSE-RIDDLED CONCLUSION TO THE PROTECTING THE WITNESS SERIES.
OH...AND THERE'S A MAJOR CLUE IN BOOK FIVE, FATAL SECRETS, THAT COMES TO LIGHT IN THIS LAST BOOK AND I ACTUALLY PICKED UP ON IT. I KNEW THAT IT WAS SIGNIFICANT BUT THE CHARACTERS, KRISTEN AND ZANE JUST WEREN'T CLUED IN ENOUGH -- EVEN THOUGH I KEPT HOLLERING AT THEM TO PAY ATTENTION AND TELL SOMEBODY!!!! BUT DID THEY LISTEN TO ME? NO! THANKFULLY, SOMETHING JOGGED ZANE'S MEMORY IN RISKY REUNION AND THINGS STARTED FALLING INTO PLACE AFTER HE TOLD JACKSON. FINALLY!!!!
