Suzanne Brockmann has taken romantic suspense by storm with her action-packed thrillers. Now she has written the most gripping novel of her career - an unforgettable story of an explosive hostage situation in which two people are caught between the call of duty and the lure of destiny.
For Lieutenant Teri Howe, one of the best helicopter pilots in the naval reserves, nothing stands in the way of her passion for flying - until a past mistake surfaces, jeopardizing everything she's worked for.
Senior Chief Stan Wolchonok has made a career of tackling difficult challenges, so it's no surprise when he comes to Teri's aid, knowing that his personal code of honor - and perhaps his heart - will be at risk. But when a jet carrying an American senator's daughter is hijacked, Stan's unflinching determination and Teri's steadfast courage are put to the ultimate test. The rescue mission will be daring and dangerous. But somewhere between peril and resolution, the line between friends and lovers begins to blur, pushing both their lives over the edge.

Love, love, love this story! I love both Teri and Stan's and the secondary story of Helga's childhood. I have read this over and over but this is the first time listening to it. The narrators are great and bring such terrific depth to the characters. What a pleasure to listen to.
Great read! This is one of my favorite books from the Troubleshooters series and Stan is one of my favorite heros. I love Stan and Terri's story. I'm looking forward to the rest of Sam and Alyssa's story and Max and Gina's.
To avoid spoiler alerts, I will say this story deals with some very realistic and unpleasant topics such as terrorism and violence against women. When you start this book, be prepared for a long sit, because the suspense, both romantic and situational, definitely make it a marathon listen. Narrators did an excellent job, as well. Kudos to all!
Started in the middle and have been collecting other episodes ever since. though a series each stands alone. In this and others the author introduces current social dilemmas with sensitivity that raises books from mere romances. The thriller side is taught and keeps attention riveted. A thoroughly good listen!
I am getting very disgusted with Audible because they are offering several books with the same title/author! I just bought and downloaded this book only to find out I already had it but with a different narrator! I'm listening to the Troubleshooters series again and thought I had missed purchasing book 3 because when I clicked on the series button, this version came up for book 3, so I used a credit to purchase it. The same thing happened to me with one of Nora Roberts trilogies. The one thing I really liked about Audible (before) is they let you know if you already had a book in your library. I'm very annoyed that I now have to do a thorough research before I make a purchase!
