Publisher's Summary

Audra has finally left her abusive husband. She's taken the family car, and her young children, Sean and Louise, are buckled up in the back. This is their chance for a fresh start.
She keeps to the country roads to avoid attention and finds herself on an empty road in the Arizona desert, far from home. Looking for a safe place to stay for the night, she spots something in her rearview mirror. A police car is following her, and the lights are flickering. Blue and red.
As Audra pulls over, she is intensely aware of how isolated they are. Her perfect escape is about to turn into a nightmare beyond her imagining....
Dark secrets and a breathtaking race to reveal the truth lie at the heart of this enthralling thriller.

6 stars! Suberb!

This story is not what is to be expected from the description. A twist came early (much better than the usual cliched twists). I can say no more about it without giving spoilers. Suffice to say, I could not stop listening. The characters, dialogue, places and circumstances are exceptionally well written, and the narration may be the best I have ever heard (and I am not usually keen on American female narrators, as I find they are often nasal and high pitched). It's a wonderful book for anyone who enjoys crime fiction. My recommendation? Just buy it!

Enjoyed the story kept me on my toes being a mother especially, what I would like to do to these types.
Must remember that in real life there are no happy endings to this type of evil.
