I have really liked the style of the Suzanne Brockman action books, an exciting story with decent of character development. I have to admit that I have not read the stories in order. As I come to the earlier numbers in the Troubleshooters series there is much more character development. The books are worked in a way so there are little sniplets from the past that are blended to help you see how the character became the way they are now. As opposed to the later books where the characters already seem to know themselves and they decide to be with their loves/partner anyway and deal with the faults instead of the author helping the readers understanding of what made them that way through past flashbacks.
THIS book is referenced in just about EVERY other book that she writes. This is the story where Gina and Max first meet when she is a hostage on an airplane and he is the negotiator. It colors those characters throughout the rest of the series.(happens in first 1.5 hrs) Also this is the book where Sam meets Mary Lou, then leaves to work on the hostage situation... with Alyssa and Jules. So a lot of characters that you'll come to know and love, and who will have their own books later, do actions in this book that will haunt them through the series.
I wasn't a huge fan of the reader. I don't think that she does well with a large number of male voices and I wasn't a fan of her Danish accent either. She tells the story well, good pacing, you just can't tell all the men apart sometimes.
