A chance encounter leads to a fight for her life...
Kit Finn plays it safe in her personal life; any risky moves are saved for her work. But when she meets handsome Matt Healy on a business trip she decides she’s tired of being careful. Kit acts on her instincts and the two share a night of passion.
They agree to meet again when they are back home in New York City, but when Kit arrives at Matt’s apartment she is greeted by a total stranger claiming he is the real Matt. Realising she has been duped Kit decides to put the encounter behind her. But when the police ask her to identify a man killed in a hit and run, with only her business card in his possession, Kit is shocked to recognise the victim as the genuine Matt Healy.
Kit fears she has become unintentionally embroiled in a sinister web of deceit. With no real evidence to take to the police, Kit resolves to unravel the mystery herself. But can she do so before more lives, including her own, are put in danger?

Right characters, wrong plot
White is a very talented writer, able to pull the reader along through plot twists, revelations and a ‘is he or isnt he a villain’ B story line. The challenge is that the machinations are somewhat dated feeling and predictable and the psychological tension tends to dissipate in the second half when we learn more from the love interest/possible villain.
The story kind of seems overly wrought.
