Special Agent Nikki Boyd is on her way home to Tennessee.  She is flying on a plane when they encounter some turbulence.  The woman in the seat next to Nikki strikes up a conversation and tells Nikki she is afraid.  Before they can continue their conversation, more turbulence strikes and it is discovered that the man next to this woman is dead, then the plane takes a nose dive.  After getting off the plane, Nikki notices that the woman has accidentally left her watch in her seat.  Nikki tries to find her to return it, but doesn’t see her.  She asks for her name of a flight attendant and told that no one was sitting in that seat.  There is no record of the woman being on the plane.  A mystery begins that will take Nikki on a harrowing journey in the next 24-48 hours.

In addition to this, Nikki is to meet Tyler at the airport.  He has returned from overseas just a few days ago after a 3-month contract job.  He has a new job offer in Tennessee, but he and Nikki haven’t had a chance to talk about a relationship or the future.  With this new case of a missing person, Nikki is whisked out of the airport and taken directly to her office to begin the search for the missing woman as Nikki discovers she was supposed to testify at a trial that would have resulted in a famous philanthropist going to jail.  With the search on, Nikki is under pressure to find the woman as well as deal with a personal health issue that might affect her future relationship with Tyler.  How will she survive the next couple of days?  You will have to read this exciting tale to find out!

Whew!  Talk about nonstop action!!  This book starts with a plane crash and never lets up on the adrenaline scale.  Special Agent Nikki Boyd endures more chaos in her life in the span of 48 hours than anyone can shake a stick at!  She has professional trauma as well as personal drama.  It is a good thing she is a Christian or I don’t know how she would keep her sanity.  If you like action, then you will certainly enjoy this very entertaining story from the pen of Lisa Harris.  Nikki and Tyler make an adorable couple and I am so glad that they are pursuing a relationship together.  I have liked her determination to continue investigating her sister’s disappearance for over ten years.  I hope more is revealed in the next book, Vanishing Point, about this ongoing mystery.  This fourth book in the series is due to be released in November 2017 and I can’t wait!
