Years ago, Iris Johansen wrote the “Wind Dancer” trilogy and that statue play a prominent role in this book. FINAL TARGET is a thrilling romantic suspense novel that will have fans of the author ecstatic and bring Ms.
Johansen new readers. A secondary player deserves his own story be told especially with the nastiness that he goes through in this exciting tale.
