Gator Fontenot of the Special Forces paranormal squad can't refuse an urgent request to save the elusive Iris Johnson, a victim of the same horrific experiments that warped Gator. Now unleashed, she's a flame-haired weapon of unimaginable destructive powers, a walking time bomb bent on revenge in the sultry bayous of New Orleans, and hunted by a shadowy assassin. It's Gator's job to reel Iris in. But can two people haunted by violent betrayals trust the passion that soon ignites between them? Or is one of them just playing another seductive and deadly night game?
At the start of bestseller Feehan's suspenseful third GhostWalker novel (after Mind Game), Raoul "Gator" Fontenot, a member of the Special Forces paranormal squad known as the GhostWalkers, is looking for Iris "Flame" Johnson, who, like Gator, was a subject of genetic engineering by the late Dr. Peter Whitney. Though Whitney's treatment left Flame with superior physical strength and hearing, he also used her as a guinea pig, deliberately giving her cancer in order to further his research for a cure. After Gator finds Flame in the steamy bayou country outside New Orleans, the pair team up to search for another young woman who has mysteriously disappeared, as clever assailants dog their every step. Though Flame and Gator are endowed with superhuman skills, this captivating story's paranormal aspects never overshadow the sexual tension between them.
