On-the-run ex-agent Peri Reed returns bigger and bolder than ever in the highly anticipated sequel in #1 New York Times bestselling author Kim Harrison's new suspense trilogy, The Peri Reed Chronicles. Peri Reed's job eats away at her personal life, but for a special task agent in hiding, forgetting the past can be a blessing. Betrayed by the man she thought she loved and the agency that turned her into the very thing she fought against, Peri abandoned the wealth and privilege of Opti for an anonymous life riddled with memory gaps and self-doubt. But when a highly addictive drug promises to end her dependency on those who'd use her as a tool for their own success, she must choose to either remain broken and vulnerable or return to the above-the-law power and prestige she once left: strong but without will--for whoever holds her next fix, will hold her loyalty. Yet even now as then, a love based on lies of omission might still save her life "in this action-packed near-future urban fantasy novel" ( Locus magazine).
