"Angela Constantine is a girl born broken. When Angela was young, before she came to realize she had a rare ability, she was a rather ordinary girl. At least, that was what everyone said. But Angela is anything but ordinary. The daughter of a meth addict, she is convinced she was born a freak. Haunted by an abusive childhood, she was forced to become a woman far too soon. And in the process, she became more. Angela Constantine has a secret life. Angela juggles multiple jobs to live a secluded life in a cabin in the mountains. But she also lives a secret life, right under everyone's noses. Because her family's bloodline carries the ability to recognize killers, she adopts a solitary, violent existence in service of her own, personal mission in life. When Angela unexpectedly finds herself the prey of a group of international terrorists, she is the only one who knows the truth of what they are about to do. She might look like an unlikely hero. She might also be our only hope."-- Provided by Publisher.

Don't waste your time with this book. The concept is somewhat curious: a woman (Angela) who can detect killers just by making eye-contact with them. The author does not explain how this works, other than to say that this ability is acquired genetically. However, the book was badly written. It is repetitive throughout (how many times do we need to know that a .22 is an assassin's preferred weapon, that Angela had a difficult childhood, or that her mother is a drug addict, and so on); the bad guys are so stupid as to be laughable; none of the characters elicited any sympathy or attachment. The book literally became a page-turner as I gleaned a few words and paragraphs here and there to avoid the useless, repetitive descriptions. There was one good action scene towards the end, with a group of terrorists holed-up in a building. but it is not enough, I feel, to redeem the story. This is the first book I have read from Mr. Goodkind. It felt like it was written by a 12th grader. If he intends to make this into a series (and I believe he will), I will not read the follow-up books.

I've been a long time fan of Terry Goodkind, starting with the Sword of Truth series twenty years ago. This story did not disappoint - page turner from the very beginning.
