"Sam Dryden, retired special forces, lives a quiet life in a small town on the coast of Southern California. While out on a run in the middle of the night, a young girl runs into him on the seaside boardwalk. Barefoot and terrified, she's running from a group of heavily armed men with one clear goal--to kill the fleeing child. After Dryden helps her evade her pursuers, he learns that the eleven year old, for as long as she can remember, has been kept in a secret prison by forces within the government. But she doesn't know much beyond her own name, Rachel. She only remembers the past two months of her life--and that she has a skill that makes her very dangerous to these men and the hidden men in charge. Dryden, who lost his wife and young daughter in an accident five years ago, agrees to help her try to unravel her own past and make sense of it, to protect her from the people who are moving heaven and earth to find them both. Although Dryden is only one man, he's a man with the extraordinary skills and experience--as a Ranger, a Delta, and five years doing off-the-book black ops with an elite team. But, as he slowly begins to discover, the highly trained paramilitary forces on their heels is the only part of the danger they must face. Will Rachel's own unremembered past be the most deadly of them all?"--… (mere)

Retired black ops specialist Sam Dryden is out for a late evening run when a young girl crashes into him while running for her life. Dryden helps Rachel escape her captors, becoming her protector as they are chased across the country by a powerful, shady members of the military industrial complex and government. Rachel has some repressed mind control skills, and everyone is scared of what she will do when she regains them. I liked that there were interesting plot developments throughout the book, especially regarding Rachel's past and present. Breakneck pacing. 4.5 stars.

The pace this author maintains is pretty ridiculous, but this is a quick, fun, and exciting story. ( )

One of the best suspense mystery thrillers I've read this year. Couldn't put it down. ( )

Sam Dryden ex-Special Forces, lives a quiet life in a small town on the coast of southern California. Out for a run in the middle of the night, he encounters a young girl on the seaside boardwalk. Barefoot and terrified, she's running from a group of heavily armed men with one clear goal - to kill her. Dryden learns that the 12-year-old can only remember the past 2 months, during which she's been kept in a secret prison by forces within the government. Beyond her own name, Rachel, she knows only that she has a skill that makes her very dangerous to these men and the people in charge of them. Dryden, who lost his wife and young daughter in an accident, agrees to help Rachel try to unravel her own past and make sense of it, and to protect her from the people who are moving heaven and earth to find them both. Although Dryden is only one man, he's a man with extraordinary skills and experience - as a Ranger, a Delta, and 5 years doing off-the-book black ops with an elite team. However, as he slowly begins to discover, the highly trained forces on their heels are only part of the danger they must face, because there's something else in Rachel's past, something more dangerous, more deadly than Dryden can even imagine.

I enjoyed this story about Rachel and Sam and how they both need each other and are running for their lives. Twists and turns in the plot keep the pages turning. Who are the good guys? Who are the bad guys? Who is really in control? I would have liked it even more if there hadn't been any language in it, which never adds to a story. ( )

In Dryden, Lee has created a hero who is skilled, believable and human at the same time, while Rachel comes across as sympathetic and genuine. The action is nonstop and takes place at breakneck speed with no downtime. Lee’s writing is smooth and uncontrived, and with this book, he enters the ranks of the best action-thriller writers, all of whom got that way by eschewing coincidence, instead making both characters and readers work through every roadblock while searching for any advantage that can be had.

Readers who pick up Lee’s latest should be prepared to miss their favorite television shows, since they won’t put this book down long enough to watch them.
