It isn't long before Chavez tracks them to their new location and sends a hit team after her. Galen is able to extract them from the situation before they can be captured and the three of them move into his hideaway. Sean and Elena become intimately involved but before their relationship can deepen, she is forced into a face to face confrontation with Chavez, one she probably will not survive.

NO ONE TO TRUST is an exciting romantic thriller starring two protagonists, who share in common, fighting on both sides of the law and no fear of meting out justice. There are plenty of action scenes for those readers who like high drama thrills and heart-pumping action. The offbeat courtship of Galen and Elena is unusual but fits their personalities as Iris Johansen's latest work is going to please her myriad of fans.
