White Jade is a fast-paced thriller that spins a web of deceit and murder across the globe, featuring characters caught up in a deadly international power game.
Former Recon Marine Nick Carter works for the Project, a covert counter-terrorism unit reporting to the President. He's taciturn and tough, with a dark history of emotional and physical scars. Selena Connor is a beautiful, strong, and skilled linguist. When her wealthy uncle is murdered by someone looking for an ancient book about the elixir of immortality, she's thrown into Nick's dangerous world.
Nick is assigned to protect Selena and help her recover the missing text. The search escalates into a life and death adventure reaching from the gold country of California to the high country of Tibet, from Washington to Beijing. Along the way Nick and Selena begin a relationship forged by danger, combat, and betrayal. Someone is out to take over China and attack America--and Nick and Selena are right in the line of fire.
International intrigue, terrorist acts, romance, patriotism, and the threat of nuclear war form the core of the book, the first volume in a series featuring Nick, Selena, the Project and the ongoing, complex relationship between the main protagonists.

OMG Yes! This is one awesome story! Action packed suspense thriller mixing past present & future along with mystery & terrorism!
I don't like to compare books normally as people judge the book you compared it to unfairly, but this is like Indiana Jones meets Mission Impossible! Super exciting, never a dull moment. Pay attention or you will miss something!
I loved Jack's ability to do so many different voices! He was on spot all the way thru this book making the book very believable! I could close my eyes while I listened & picture this happening in a movie.
It had me on the edge of my seat! I was afraid of what was happening. I was afraid the end of the world was coming. I was afraid a war would start!
WOW, this whole book was incredible! Never a dull moment in the book. It was dangerous, exciting, scary, adventurous, mysterious & suspenseful along with disaster, espionage, thrills stacks upon more thrills! Incredible!!!
Jack DeGolia does a fantastic job interpreting White Jade, capturing the essence of the characters. Alex Lukeman's story keeps listeners on the edge, waiting to hear what's next in store.
When they were in Tibet -- that whole segment of the book
Hard to chose a favorite, but I loved it when Selena saves the day. She is a strong female character who doesn't need a knight on a white horse -- she can hold her own.
