This was a book that I could only read in short bits because of all the Holiday and being away from home. It is easy to pick up and put down as needed.
I wish I had read the first Code X books. This is the second one of this series that I have read now and look forward to reading more.
Grayson Pierce is a survivor even as he plans his sucide if things don't get better by certain time. He has such a painful past. He also is a loner. His friend asked him for help so he came to help him. Grayson does not talk about his past, not even saying where he works or does not work.
Sam Jessup is not what Grayson thought he was when he picked her up from the airport.
She is going to be his partner for this assignment. Sam has had her DNA experimented on and now her eyes are gold color. Sam can see far in the dark, but sunlight hurts her eyes badly.
They are to find information on a couple of guys but this area in West Virgina is right into the National Radio Quiet Zone. No computers,radios, cell phones only older cars that don't have computer parts in them. Things they take for granted to help them do thier jobs right.
They really get involved in a cover story where they actually bought a house and are fixing it up. They are both so wounded that you just hope they can deal with thier pasts.
The suspense was thier till the end but it did not drive the book for me. Most of the story involved thier horrors of thier pasts.
I was given this ebook to read in return for honest review from Netgalley.
