No One To Trust
A "Hidden Identity" Mystery by Lynette Eason
Review: When three men break into her home and demand that she tell them where her husband is, Summer Abernathy is confused. He's on a business trip to New York, she tells them, due to return later that day. They promise to come back to retrieve a laptop and flash drive they insist is in his possession. But what surprises her most is that they also tell her his name isn't Kyle Abernathy, but David Hackett, a name she should look up on the Internet, in No One To Trust, the first novel of suspense in Lynette Eason's Hidden Identity series of suspense novels.
When Kyle does return, Summer tells him about the intruders. He admits his real name is David Hackett and that he is in the witness protection program. He insists he was not allowed to tell her, even though they had been married now for just over a year. Summer is angry but realizes that she must trust the man she knows as Kyle and agrees to move to a new safe house with him. The laptop and flash drive contain evidence against a man named Raimondi, the head of an organized crime syndicate, and will be used in his trial in less than a week's time. But even a new safe house isn't enough to stop Raimondi's men, who once again appear on their doorstep but this time with a more ominous warning: they have kidnapped Summer's sister, and threaten to kill her if they don't cooperate. Summer's life has been turned upside down, all because she fell in love with a man with a hidden identity. But did he love her in return? Or was she simply part of his cover?
No One To Trust is a fast-paced mystery novel filled with volatile twists and turns. The primary characters are well-drawn, their situation realistically depicted, the action exciting and tense. There is also a bit of romance, as Summer and her husband reestablish a trusting relationship after what she considers to be the lie of their marriage to date. All in all, a creatively devised and ultimately inspiring novel of suspense.
