Desperate times create desperate people. And desperate people are dangerous . . .

Though Emily Hunt comes from a family of cops, the relatively quiet life of a high school teacher suits her just fine. She's saving up to buy a house, slowly moving forward after her brother's death, and settling into a life she loves. So the last person she wants to spend time with is Mason Taylor.

An undercover cop, Mason is enemy number one as far as her family is concerned. His involvement in the death of Emily's brother is still up in the air, and now he expects her to help him with a case. Mason has been working with one of her students, Rafael Cerda, whose brother has been kidnapped by a drug cartel. And with time running out to meet their demands, Rafael is getting desperate.

Emily will have to draw on all of her strength to handle what happens next . . .

Fatal Exchange will draw you into a complex matrix of intertwining lives, unraveling secrets, and unexpected love.

I am so glad I discovered Lisa Harris's books last year and added her to my list of must-read suspense authors! I was captivated last fall by the first book in this series, Dangerous Passage (reviewed here), and this novel even exceeded that one. Harris wastes no time with superfluous or immaterial scenes before plunging the reader into the emotion and tension of this heart-pounding tale--which could have been ripped from the headlines and is far too authentic to dismiss as implausible fiction. Emily elicits admiration and respect from the opening pages, and that only grows as the scenes unfold and the stakes increase. Mason impresses as well, and one can only hope to have someone like him around in such a situation. Escalating suspense and unforeseen developments make "just one more chapter" a futile objective; be prepared to stay up late with this one! Trading sleep for reading is definitely worth this Fatal Exchange!
