Cat Dupreeís one goal in life has been to hunt down Solomon Tutuola, the man who murdered her father when she was thirteen years old, and left her for dead with a slit throat. And being a bounty hunter gives her the perfect opportunity. Sacrificing everything else Ė friends, lovers or anything which would require an emotional commitment, sheís stayed true to her goal.
Wilson McKay is the only man sheís remotely let into her life, but even then, itís on her terms. She may be willing to give him her body, but thatís all. Wilson wants more but eventually realizes he canít make her love him back.
When Cat gets a lead on Tutuola she rushes off to Mexico, ready to kill him, even if she has to die trying. McKay is angry and hurt when he realizes she left without even telling him, but that doesnít prevent him from rushing after Cat when she needs his help.
There is so much more I could say about this book, but I donít want to give away too many of the plot. Sala has penned a terrific romantic suspense. Cat is a very strong woman on the outside, but inside sheís not nearly as brave as she pretends to be. McKay is a likeable character from the beginning and only becomes more so as the story progresses.
When I chose to read this book I didnít realize it was the sequel to Nine Lives, a book I hadnít yet read. However I had absolutely no trouble getting into the story and didnít feel I was missing anything at all. Fans of the series will be happy to know another Cat Dupree novel will be released next year.
