REVIEW – updated 07/05/18
This story is based on the second and most elusive son, Ian. We have seen him crop up in several disguises throughout the previous books but now we delve deeper into his world, and be warned, it is not pretty!
Ian Kinncaid is working undercover when he finds out he has been targeted by the Raven.
Rori is not convinced that her mark is who he is supposed to be and decides that some surveillance is called for.
When Ian and his partner, John, stumble across a child porn ring and find a little something that was left behind, they enlist the help of Rori to get the girl out of the country. Needless to say the leader of the ring is not particularly happy and vows to bring Ian to his demise. Unfortunately for the Kinncaid clan, Ian has decided it’s time to go home and his problems follow him.
I really do have a thing for the ‘bad boy’ and Ian is most definitely a bad boy! He knows what he wants and he gets what he wants. In this book we find out why Ian left home and wonder what exactly goes through Jock Kinncaid’s mind sometimes. Ian and Rori’s characters work great together. Rori is tough and anyone softer for Ian just wouldn’t work. Pasts are explained and a few questions from earlier books are answered.
This is my favourite of the series.

The stakes are higher … the risks are steeper … the chances more fatal…. Rori Maitland has lived her life the way she’s wanted it. After retiring from MI6, she’s her own woman, few friends, no husband and that is the way she bloody well prefers it. After all, her job is hardly normal. Ian Kinncaid, master of disguise, has been estranged from his family for well over a decade. With his deep cover blown, he now needs a safe place to put the little girl he saved from the Prague underground. But the shadows cloak enemies and trust comes at too high a cost. When Rori’s latest mark goes awry and she finds herself helping the intense man–instead of killing him–she’s thrown into a world she’d hoped to leave behind. Now Ian and Rori must work together before someone marks them both for death and kills everyone they both hold dear. Rating: Contains violence and graphic sexual content.
