Sheriff Jake McCall will do anything to save his young daughter's life, even snatch ex-cop Maggie Gallagher, his late wife Anna's sister and the person Jake blames for Anna's death, from a witness protection program on the chance that she is a bone marrow match for her niece. Maggie is willing, but with her cover blown, the killers are on their trail, and it soon becomes clear that no one in the family is safe. As the action heats up, long-dead feelings between Jake and Maggie bubble to the surface, adding sizzling complications. VERDICT Nonstop action, heart-wrenching emotions, strained family relations, a twisting, multilayered mystery, and a dusting of holiday charm add up to a compelling Christmas read that fans will find hard to put down. Fossen (Mason) lives in Texas. (c) Copyright 2012. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
