Wendy Gould made a mistake. A bad one. One that would change her life forever and also the lives of those around her. There was No Way Back.

Which is the title of this thriller by Andrew Gross. Gross is well-known as a co-writer of James Patterson's. I think he does pretty darn well on his own. He has written seven novels now under just his own name. All good books.

Now, fasten your seat-belt. You're in for a ride of unbelievable happenings. It all starts with a stupid mistake that Wendy tries to rectify before she goes too far. Unfortunately the man (to whose room in the hotel she willingly went) is gunned down in front of her. To save herself she is able to shoot the shooter, only to find that he was a member of Homeland Security. No way this could turn out happily for anyone.

After the shootings, her only thought is to go home and confess to her husband and then for both of them to flee. Doesn't turn out the way she envisioned not at all. Disaster ensues and she's on the run by herself.

In the meantime, a nanny by the name of Lauritzia Velez is able to protect her two charges in a mall shooting. But she realizes she was the target and must flee. Here we go again.

The plot gets too convoluted for me to synopsize, so I won't try. Just take my word for it; this is a thriller and will keep you reading long into the night.
