Don't Look Back by Lynette Eason


A riveting combination of heart-stopping suspense and heartwarming romance........



Twelve years ago, forensic anthropologist Jamie Cash survived a brutal kidnapping, torture, and rape. After years of therapy, she has made a life for herself—though one that is haunted by memories of her terrifying past. She finally lets herself get close to a man, FBI agent Dakota Richards, when signs start appearing that point to one frightening fact—her attacker is back and ready to finish the job he started all those year ago. Can she escape his grasp a second time? And will she ever be able to let down her guard enough to find true love?

Filled with heart-stopping suspense, gritty realism, and a touch of romance, Don't Look Back is the second book in the Women of Justice series.  Readers will be hooked from the beginning, finding that once you are in Lynette Eason's world, you're trapped until you turn the very last page.

CAFE LILY'S REVIEW:

Lynette Eason’s books are known for “suspense with a twist” and she delivers once again in her newest book, Don’t Look Back. Follow up to Book One, Too Close To Home, this story continues with Jamie Cash who has overcome being kidnapped at eighteen while walking home from a party. Although she survived the brutal attack and being held as the prisoner of a psychopath, she’s still jumpy and nervous. She has good reason to be – her attacker is still on the loose.


Attempting to rebuild her life and move on from the horror she’s experienced, Jamie has earned her doctorate and is working as a contract forensic anthropologist for the Chief Medical Examiner. She excels in her field of osteology, and has been called in to work a case which could turn out to be the work of a serial killer. Human bones are mysteriously turning up in shallow graves and Jamie is working with a team of experts to figure out who has put them there.


As she throws herself into the case and works late one night, Jamie comes home to find that her house has been tampered with. Although her alarm never goes off, her lights are off and her blinds are open – two things Jamie NEVER does. A family picture taken from her mantle shows up later in her Bible and Jamie realizes that her attacker is stalking her again and sending her subtle messages. As panic and fear threaten to cripple her – Jamie determines that her attacker will not win and ruin her life again.

This book gave me chills! Fasten your seatbelt and hang on for the ride, because the very first page pulls readers right into the middle of a potential crime scene. If you’re squeamish then brace yourself, because this book is a bit gritty and descriptive when it comes to dead bodies. If you enjoy being kept in suspense and not knowing what’s coming next - RUN and get yourself a copy of this book!

Available October 2010 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
