Garth pieces his life back together. He becomes aware that he has a wife, and she is missing. He takes up the search of a wife he can’t remember. He discovers disturbing things about her past that shakes his faith in a relationship. He makes plans to save her and finds himself allied with his enemy, the assassin.

Meanwhile, Lacey Ann Kinkaid Wainwrigth is being held by a Marcos Muragh. Lacey sent him up the river years ago. Lacey must come to terms with her past if she is to ever see Garth again.

Review:

Inside Moves picks up where Tipping Point left off. The story starts with Bobby Wainwright’s death. Garth and Lacey are returning from the funeral when they are run off the road. This sets of a chain of events that finds Lacey in the hands of Marcos Muragh’s gang and Garth trying to recover his memories. Then the story flashes back to the honeymoon in Austria. The choice of using a flashback is almost always questionable. I felt this slowed the forward progression of the story. It would have been better if the story started in Austria, or the trip to Austria was alluded to.

However, once it gets going, the tension starts to build. As Garth rebuilds his memories he becomes aware that his wife is missing. He discovers Lacey had a questionable past, and comes to know the real strength of the woman he married. It is a story of abuse, strength, and revenge. We also see a different side of the assassin. Ariel Amiti is a professional and a human being. Garth and Ariel put aside their past to take on Marcos Muragh and his gang. Garth and his friends come to appreciate Ariel’s special skills. The story builds to a titanic ending that leaves no one untouched.

  2. I respond to flashbacks similarly. Some work well, but many do indeed take us on a side-trip that can distract from forwarding the story. Appreciated the review – especially since my reading time is so limited these days (blogs & blogging – sheesh!) Thanks.
