Jake Ingram is a well-known economist who is aiding the FBI in their investigation of the World Bank Heist. The Ingrams adopted Jake at the age of twelve and there is nobody he is closer to than his adopted sibling Zach. Jake has no memories of his life before he was twelve and that problem is why Zach is in so much trouble. Somebody has kidnapped him as he was leaving Glen Laurel University thinking he was his brother, confined him in a deserted farmhouse and drugged him.

The kidnappers told psychiatrist and hypnotist Dr. Maisy Dalton that Jake was brainwashed after being in a cult for over a decade. When Maisy sees Zach for the first time he tries to tell her that he isn't Jake. After seeing how his “family” treats him, she finally believes him and they make their escape. When the kidnappers find them, a battle ensues and only one group will walk away from it alive.

Maggie Shayne always writes a riveting work of romantic suspense but she out does even herself in her latest work ENEMY MIND. The two protagonists are attracted to each other from their first meeting but because of some painful events in her past, she is afraid to act on her feelings. Zach, who always thought he was a wimp compared to Jake, shows that he is a true hero as he defends the woman he loves against those who seek to destroy her. ENEMY MIND is the first installment in what looks to be a great series.
