Dr. Alyssa Foster is a radiologist at St. Jude’s hospital. She’s competing with another doctor for a new position at the hospital and has two weeks to prove she’s the better choice when her life gets turned upside down by a prisoner taking her hostage in his bid for his escape.
Teague Creek is in prison for murder. He plans his escape and the radiologist is his key to making the whole plan work. He complains of pain so he can be sent to the hospital for scans and takes the doctor hostage, makes his escape with another prisoner, trades her for someone he loves and heads for the border. A fairly simple and straightforward plan, right? Only, his plans go every which way but right. The only thing he accomplishes is his escape. After that, well, Murphy’s Law takes over for the beleaguered Teague and the adventure begins.
Excellent read! Well-written, excellent plot, interesting well-developed characters and smooth-flowing. I had a hard time putting the book down. I can’t wait to read the stories for the other characters in this series.
