About this Book

When cybercriminals hack into the U.S. Marshal's Witness Protection database and auction off personal details to the highest bidder, FBI Agent Sean Nichols begins a high-stakes chase to find the hacker. Trouble is, he has to work with U.S. Marshal Taylor Mills, who knows the secrets of his past, and the seconds are ticking down before someone dies.


I love reading and sharing my latest book with readers like you. I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. I am friends with many authors and also have a client relationship with many of them. This book may be one I received from a current or future client. Regardless of my relationship with the author, this review reflects my honest opinions of the book. For more information view my full disclaimer policy.

Seconds to Live has a captivating title and a story of a hacker who is auctioning off personal details of individuals in the U.S. Marshal’s Witness Protection program. I was excited to start this book and see what adventure the author would take me on.

This book started off exciting for me. I learned of Phantom, whose identity we had to work to uncover, and along the way, I learned about the U.S. Marshal’s Witness Protection program. I never thought about the sacrifice of someone who works for the program to protect the people in their care. The author did a nice job of showing this sacrifice.

With a title like Seconds to Live, I did expect the book to grip me and take me on a winding journey to figuring out who Phantom was. While this book had suspenseful elements that were in line with other books I’ve read in this genre, I would have liked to get wrapped up a little more in the story than I did. Overall, though, this was a nice book with an intriguing plot.
