Can you ever hold on to a ghost?
Elliot is tracking an elusive killer, codenamed Ghost, with ties to organized crime. Every time the Sanctuary team gets close, Ghost slips their grasp.
Cole has nowhere left to turn. With his father dying and his sister in danger, he turns for help to the very people trying to track him down. Sanctuary’s assistance is what he needs to punch another hole in Varga’s organization.
When Elliot and Cole meet, it isn’t just passion that consumes them. When lust becomes something more, Elliot realizes that sometimes you can’t hold on to a ghost, and that sacrifice is often the only way to make things right.
(¸.•´ ★The ghost with a deleted past.
They had chemistry even before they met, and when they did, it rocketed. Former DEA, now Sanctuary agent Elliot was placed in the position of finding and taking down the man who had become known as Ghost.
Who was keeping secrets? Who was this sister, and who the hell was Cole?
His name had been mentioned several books ahead and apparently, Cole Egan, the perfect cop was that man. He was a man of various names and identities. A ghost always one step ahead of Sanctuary, until Elliot came close enough. For many reasons, the team wanted him, preferably alive. Cole was a man of secrets, and there was no way he was getting out alive without imparting many of them. He was also cited as the person responsible for Simon’s partner Jamie’s death in the previous novel, [please read the previous book Accidental Hero (Sanctuary 8) to catch up]; Cole also had a long history that was slowly being unraveled.
All is not as it seemed.
The whole premise of the story was Cole’s and Sanctuary’s involvement in ending the Varga’s case and righting the wrong of that organization. No one expected the case to involve so many or to cross the paths they did. Elliott and Cain needed answer and they were going to get it, guns blazing and all.
And what of Elliot and Cole? It wasn’t hard to see the need in both men. Now if they could stop all the teasing and get work out of the way, then maybe, just MAYBE, they could make a go at it?
Elliot and Cole may not be my favorite Sanctuary characters, but they sure were the most fun. When Cole teased: “Everyone already knows I’m the one in charge,” you could almost SEE the steam coming off off Elliot. The twists and turns author RJ Scott embedded in this tale was absolute pleasurable. There were old time favorites coming into play and new bad guys who was not into leaving anyone alive. I don’t know about anyone else, but I am on pins and needles for By The Numbers (Sanctuary 10).
