Another winner by CJ Lyons! I have yet to read one that hasn't kept me on the edge of my seat. Lucy seems to find herself in the strangest predicaments with great bodily and mental harm always right there. This novel kept up the pace with unexpected twists and turns. It kept me guessing right to the very end.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thrill Ride Sept. 3 2011
By Dragon Lady Nessa, breathing fire. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This action/suspense novel definitely lives up to its billing. Lucy Guardino is an FBI agent who is assigned to a special task force that specializes in cases of sexual assault and exploitation. As such, she deals with a lot of child pornography or exploitation cases where the perverts employ the Internet to find their victims. She's also a mom, who's trying to balance her family's needs against the demands of a job that could mean life or death for a victim. By doing her job, maybe she can protect her own family against the predators in society. When 14 year old Ashley Yeager disappears, it's Lucy's job to find her before the worst can happen. But Lucy's own daughter has come down with an unknown illness, setting Lucy's two worlds on a collision course.

The action in this book is fast-paced and constant. Even though you find out the identity of the offender rather early, it still doesn't let up. It's full of enough twists and turns in the plot to keep the reader fully engaged, without the action feeling unreasonable or unbelievable.

There are a few grammar and editing problems which is beginning to seem inevitable with Kindle. For example, one victim starts out with the name Noreen, then becomes Darlene, and then goes back to Noreen. And Lucy has a "dessert-like plant" in her office. Can you tell me where to get one of those? I'd love to grow desserts! As this was a book by a veteran author that was published before it came to Kindle, I have to downgrade it a bit just for sheer sloppiness. At least the procedural elements of the law enforcement agencies feel real. The author did her homework there.

When I started reading this book, the story gripped me almost immediately and I had a hard time putting it down. Well worth reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous! April 1 2016
By Roger & Jean Fauble - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Fabulous! This is the first book that I have read by CJ Lyons & it wo'nt be my last! This book grabbed my attention from start to finish. I read the book in less than a day & it would have been quicker but life & work got in the way!The main character, Lucy Guardino, struggles to balance her job as an FBI agent with the role of mother and wife. An action packed thriller that leaves you wanting more. Can't wait to get my hands on another CJ Lyons book, in fact I want to Amazon & purchased another before writing this review!

5.0 out of 5 stars Indiana Jones is Not the Only One Who Hates Snakes March 24 2017
By John R. Sheehan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Great fun - it plodded occasionally but the characters kept up the tension when the author didn't. (I know - the author writes the characters but that's what it feels like.) Interesting character interactions, and not just for window dressing, they all led somewhere. Well-crafted, a pleasant discovery. Looking forward to crossing paths with more work from this author

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly enjoyable. Lyon writes a great story. June 27 2015
By Product Consumer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Loved Lucy in her FBI fanatical methods. Jumping in feet first and come what may. Home life is chaos and she's driven to succeed. From a snake infested pool to searching for missing children. Ashley Walden in particular, who is also a character with a voice in the story. Interwoven are the undercurrents of Lucy's worry over her own child and Ashley twine as if helping one will save the other. The tension is tight and the story clips along in a breakneck pace. If you enjoy strong passionate characters doing good in a world of bad, this one is for you!

5.0 out of 5 stars I actually felt like I was on the case with Lucy Nov. 25 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Wow, I was hooked on this book from the opening. I believe CJ nailed it on this one. It was gripping. I actually felt like I was on the case with Lucy. Then I felt like I was there with Ashely. Sure, I found some errors, but as a writer myself, I know how difficult editing a long book such as this can be. Editors aren't cheap. Anyway, I loved this story. The only beef I had was the Snake fighting scene in chapter 2 I think. I could truly relate to Lucy and for sure Ashely about not having a caring family. And wondering what it would like to gave someone care for you. Currently Im reading book 2 Blood Stained and so far, Snake Skin is way better. My rating of 5 stars is how much I loved being involved into the personal aspects of the characters lives a n d the twist at the end eow CJ definitely nailed a good one here! I have the series and can't wait to finish them!
