Publisher's Summary

A powerful novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Danielle Steel, about an ambassador's daughter who is kidnapped and the former undercover agent who comes to her aid, saving her life in more ways than one.

For DEA Special Agent Marshall Everett, life as he knows it is over once a gunshot wound renders his arm useless. Barred forever from the undercover work he loves, he has nothing - no close friends, no family, no hometown or base, and no desire to settle for life behind a desk. He's called to action in the most unlikely of places when he stumbles upon a beautiful girl burying an old steel box in a Parisian park. Drawn into the mystery, Marshall soon discovers that she is Ariana Gregory, daughter of the U.S. ambassador to Argentina, who is trying to find herself again after being kidnapped and brainwashed by radical revolutionaries. But there are powerful forces at large who will not rest until they secure revenge, and Marshall and Ariana will face yet more trials - and another beginning - before they can truly bury the dark past and embark on a new life together.

I'm here for Alexander Cendese.

I couldn't tell you the last time I read a Danielle Steel novel- it was probably back in the 80s. I mainly got this one, and one other, because of Alexander Cendese. I grabbed them during Audible's big sale- I was looking for more books narrated by him and they were both only $5 so I figured why not!
I didn't pay attention when I bought them, but after starting Undercover I realized both of the ones I grabbed are abridged versions. I'm not sure how much of the story is left out of these abridged books, although I could certainly tell the story was condensed. I am kind of curious now to go back and read the book, to see how it was changed and to see if I would appreciate the story more. That's not to say I didn't enjoy it, I did. And while, for the most part, it didn't necessarily feel rushed, it definitely seemed like there could have been more.
I'm not sure I really liked how the story was broken up- we get Marshall's pov at first, which was basically a complete short story for him, which I really liked- except for that one jaw-dropping moment! All that was really missing from his story was a resolution. And then the book switches over to Ariana's pov, and her story is given the same treatment, until time catches up and their stories finally overlap. Again, this might have worked out better in the full length novel, with the abridged audio this is where it did feel a bit rushed. I liked when the two of them were brought together, I wished more time had been spent on them.

I'm going to have to see if my library has a copy of the book, because the more I think about it, the more I want to compare and see what was missed.

Alexander Cendese is one of my favorite narrators and I love seeing the range of books he's narrated. I haven't been let down by any of the books I've listened to of his, and this was no different.
