The latest from Gross (15 Seconds, 2012, etc.).

After a spat with her husband, Wendy Gould goes to a hotel room with a man she met an hour before. She doesn’t follow through with the sex, since she realizes the betrayal she’s committing. But some unexpected things happen, and before long, there are two dead men, including a U.S. government agent. Now she is on the run because she’s falsely pegged for murder, while another agent wants her dead at all costs. But why? And what will happen when she fesses up to her husband? Another thread follows Lauritzia, a Mexican woman who’s also running for her life. The story moves along at an edge-of-the-seat pace. But a bit of tightening would have helped. If a man holds a gun to another’s head, he’s probably not wise to give a long speech before pulling the trigger, since tables get turned that way.

Will appeal to thriller fans.
