"Veteran Jacob Denisov lives alone in his small, darkened home, sleepless, starving, blaming himself for the horrors of the past and waiting for the moment when he gathers enough courage to kill himself. When neighbor Madeline Hewitson drives her car through the front wall of his house, she breaks his house--and Jacob's life--wide open. She isn't called "Mad Maddie" for nothing. The survivor of a college dorm massacre, a woman accused of her lover's murder, she is haunted by ghosts and tormented by a killer only she can see. Dealing with construction and forced to see the world outside his home, Jacob watches Maddie, recognizes a kindred spirit and wonders--is this truly madness, or has someone caught her in a twisted labyrinth of revenge and compassion, guilt and redemption, murder and madness?"-- Provided by publisher.

I quite enjoyed this book. I had read the previous books a while back and only vaguely recalled their plots but Kateri is a person that is hard to forget. I enjoy how the author portrays the various characters with all of their many flaws.

First book I've read by this author, but I was impressed by the Goodreads reviews. Very well-done. Secondary characters as interesting and well-drawn as the unusual and damaged main characters. Suspenseful, with few, if any plot holes. Setting intriguing and almost a character own its own. After finishing this I went back and read the first two books of this series.

The storyline was interesting, a stalked woman manages to rescue herself and a hero suffering from PTSD. Unfortunately there wasn't a lot of time to flesh the characters out because there are a number of secondary characters (I actually found Kateri, the Native American police chief the most believable and interesting) that slow the plotline. A good comfort read for romantic suspense fans who like Catherine Coulter and those who like ensemble series like Suzanne Brockmann's Troubleshooters.

Great book. The main characters Maddie and Jacob were very entertaining to say the least. And yes, the ending doesn't wrap everything up but this is a continuing series.

I had a hard time getting into this story, but when I finally did, I have to say I did enjoy it very much. Maddie and Jacob are two people who have been through hell and together they seem to be able to find their way back. But things keep happening to Maddie and everyone is wondering if she is having a relapse. I didn't completely like the ending because I felt as if I was left hanging a little , but I am sure the next book will solve one of the puzzles. All in all I would recommend this book.
