FBI Special Agent Bree Adams has a personal secret, something she has managed to keep hidden for the past ten years-at least she always thought so… But a chance encounter on a train, and whispered words of chilling consequence change everything. Is the truth about to come out or is someone playing with her mind and her life?

Nathan Bishop knew Bree when she was a street kid like him. Their dark past once put him in her debt, and he had to pay up. The last thing he wants to do is help her again. He has a new life now—a life he could lose with one wrong move. But the beautiful Bree is desperate—how can he walk away?

To get to the truth, protect innocent lives and their own, they'll have to fight their way through the past, as danger stalks their every move, and heartbreaking choices must be made.

  • I wanted to love this book

    By Clarence09081966
    I didn’t like this book nearly as much as the first in the series. Lots of dry spots and it felt like the same exact story with different characters.

  • Great book!

    By LoveDachshunds
    This was a great story! I was hooked from the first page. The story was full of intrigue and suspense making it hard to put down. The main characters were very likable and fun even with the seriousness of the story. It was good to see they were able to overcome the obstacles of their youth. Although there wasn’t too much involvement of characters from the previous book, it’s always fun to read about what they are doing. I’m anxious to see what Wyatt’s story will be. I’m looking forward to that next book in the series.

  • Past Catches Up To The Present

    By Mpomper514
    Another hit for Barbara Freethy. I always wait impatiently for her next novel to be released! While this is the second in the Off the Grid: FBI Series, it can easily be read as a standalone book. Barbara is successful in drawing you into the suspense from the very start of the book. When Bree, an FBI agent that works in the division that helps with child kidnappings, gets requested to go to Chicago to assist in a kidnapping case, she gets pulled into reliving her past of growing up in Chicago. Nathan is part of that past, and he fights getting involved with Bree in helping find the kidnapped girl. Interesting to see how Nathan and Bree each have different memories from growing up together. Loved the connection they have. In this book, we get to see how Bree became the FBI agent she is and her background. Allow time to read, because once you start it will be hard to put the book down. Leaves you guessing throughout the book as to who is responsible for the kidnapping and how it will end.
  • Reckless Whisper

    By Jen G F
    ARC for honest review with no compensation Reckless Whisper is book 2 in the Off the Grid: FBI series by Barbara Freethy that is filled with suspense, intrigue, secrets and revenge that keeps you on the edge of your seat and turning the pages to find out what happens next... FBI Agent Bree Adams is called back to Chicago to help with a missing child case that seems to have the same characteristics as a case she just worked on to bring another missing child back home. Only thing is she thought she would never return Chicago, her past, people she thought never to see again and a long kept secret. Is this just about a missing child or is some messing with Bree? Can Nathan, a man from her past who helped her leave Chicago with her secret, now help her to find the missing child and keep her secret or will the person who is pushing her buttons expose everything and destroy a child's life in the process???
