With time winding down, she and Jack must put aside the tensions between them in a race to connect the dots—and save Laurie’s life...

It's a bit of an overwhelming read at first because so many characters are thrown at you at once. I also find the dialogue between characters to be quite unrealistic (too perfect) at times. It certainly gets better the farther into the book you are.
