Book Description: 

These three questions have plagued Lisa Green for the past two months since she crawled barefoot and bleeding from the wreckage of a catastrophic car accident. Her boyfriend Roland has been nursing her back to health under close watch. Lisa has amnesia. They both know that, but only Lisa knows that she hasn’t lost her ability to reason. And reason tells her that she is not Roland’s girlfriend. She is his prisoner. Escape is her only option, and Lisa must figure out who she can trust and how to stay alive. It’s bad enough that she’s been held against her will, but worse, it seems that she wasn’t randomly chosen. There’s more to her story than kidnapping, and the details appear to cross borders and continents. With organized criminals hard on her heels, Lisa must expose her enemies before they choose their next victim.

My Review: 

This is a fast paced thriller about Lisa Green, who finds her way out of a wrecked car. She’s injured with a needle in her arm and has lost her memory. A man by the name of Roland Lewis claims to be her boyfriend. However, Roland kidnaps her and keeps her prisoner in his home. Somehow she manages to escape, and when her memories return, she learns her true identity is Laura Pace and the story takes off from there.

I love that Laura is a strong female character and I really enjoyed the backstory about her grandmother. This is a very action packed story with a lot of details. It took me a bit to fit the all pieces together but once I did, I really enjoyed. KILLING PACE has a deadly car accident, amnesia, crime, espionage, and historical elements from World War II. It’s not exactly what I expected, but I thought it was great fun!

My rating is 3 out of 5 stars!
