"No One to Trust" by Lynette Eason

ISBN:  9780800722081
About the book:  Summer Abernathy wakes up one morning to find her husband missing, three men in her home intent on finding him, and the life she's been living based on a lie. Which Kyle Abernathy did she marry? The computer programmer she met in line at the bank? Or the one who was apparently using that image as a cover?

The search for her husband--and answers--takes Summer ever deeper into a world of organized crime where people are used one moment and discarded the next. And with her deepest relationship of trust already shattered, Summer doesn't know who to believe.

My thoughts:  This is a fast-paced mystery, suspense story about a young man whose actions in his past have led to a situation today where he is in the WITSEC (Witness Protection)  program because he is the primary witness in a major criminal case. He has married while in the WITSEC program and is working as an IT guru. His wife, Summer, is an attorney but she has no knowledge of his past and his being in the WITSEC program. In short, his life has been a lie to her up to the point where she awakens and sees a stranger in her bedroom threatening to do deadly harm to her and her loved ones if she doesn’t fine a certain laptop.

The action gets moving pretty quickly from this horrific start and doesn’t stop until you turn the final page of the book.

Summer’s past involved people she should have been able to trust implicitly betraying her. Now she is faced with more lies and betrayal from her husband and others.
The main protagonist is a really weird, creepy criminal with absolutely no conscience. No hesitation to order a kill. He has a strange attraction for snakes and that is where it really gets creepy.

If you enjoy mystery, action, and suspense, and don’t mind a bit of chilling, creepy, then you will enjoy this book. I enjoyed it, but since I don’t like snakes, I do wish the snake part had been played out differently.  Lynnette Eason writes a terrific book and it flows nicely with well thought out characters and vivid descriptions.

Just what is WITSEC?
