Government secrets are being sold, and the newly sworn in president of the United States already feels out of options. Without knowing the full scope of the scandal, the president decides to turn to the one person he knows he can trust - former FBI agent Elizabeth James. Her deep distrust of the system is rooted in her unfair discharge from service. Now she sees a chance to restore her reputation and send a message to those who would use their power to destroy others' lives.
Elizabeth is ordered to do whatever it takes to end this criminal organization, but she's also told that this is completely off the books. Nothing can point back to the president until the entire network is dismantled. Elizabeth can rely only on her team, comprised of a computer whiz and a former air force pararescueman, to get to the bottom of the leaks. Every decision could cost them their freedom...or their lives.
What Elizabeth didn't count on was her heart becoming as entangled as the lies she tells to uncover the truth. With her heart now in the game, Elizabeth works on guarding those she loves as she dives headfirst into danger. Can Elizabeth follow the leads and take out the leaders of the secret group before the whole world is thrown into chaos?

Holy smokes classifying this book as "Mystery Thriller," was right on the mark. One can certainly see many possibilities for more books. Specially with this cast of characters. There was so much going on in this first book. I personally listened to this one twice to get most of the characters straight. Because of that I will be reading the next one as soon as it is released. From Kathleen Brooks first refreshing straight action packed book. With the limited amount of sexual scenes. She has become one of my very favorite authors. As fast as she can write them I will read them. Therese Plummer as always does a great job narrating. Trust me when I say if you like kick ass women, great guys. And a story that keeps you guessing, you will love this book!
Brooks has added a great new series to her writing, going in a bit of a different direction. Her choice of narrator is spot on! She brings this book to life.
If you enjoy Kathleen Brooks, you don't want to miss this series. If you have never read anything by Brooks, give this one a try. Intrigue, espionage, and a bit of romance...what more could you ask for?
I have read every book Kathleen Brooks has published. Without hesitation, I can say this is her BEST. The story was captivating, and I was on the edge of my proverbial seat with every word. Of course, Therese Plummer's performance was excellent. Loved this audio book!!!
