Don’t Look Back opening line: Terror came as a vibration, a plucked-wire note more felt than heard, primary to the deadening heat, to the flick of unseen insects against her face, to the oppressive night humidity that pressed into her pores.
How far can Eve push herself? Can she overcome all odds to outwit a man who has been trained in the art of warfare? What should have been a holiday to overcome her divorce turns into a race against time, and against evil. If Eve survives she will get to see her son again, and this is what keeps her going. If she gets to safety she will save the lives she can, but if she gets killed trying to get out of the jungle in Mexico, the others will surely die as well.
This book was so real I could hardly believe is is a work of fiction. The tension is palpable and I can highly recommend this page turner of a thriller, not only for the story, but as an insight to the hidden beauty of Mexico.
