When six canisters of a lethal nerve agent are stolen from a military testing lab, Admiral Jake Robinson must recover the chemicals - by any means necessary. He defies convention and decides to infiltrate the compound where religious fanatics have stored the deadly toxin.
Dr. Zoe Lange is a biological warfare specialist and an expert in espionage. Zoe agrees to assist Jake on the case, and, posing as husband and wife, they manage to gain access to the compound. But Jake fears his instant attraction to Zoe might compromise the mission.
Their marriage may be a hoax, but Jake's growing feelings for Zoe are anything but make-believe. With each hour he's in Zoe's company, the stakes get higher, the game more real. And the dangers within the compound escalate out of control.
Now everything is on the line....

This was a great story and I thoroughly enjoyed the characters, the story line and the narrator. There was enough suspense and danger to keep the story moving along and enough interplay between the characters to make it all interesting. The "Admiral" was introduced in several of her earlier novels so it had helped that I had read this one farther along in the series.
As I travel a great deal in my job, I have enjoyed the Navy Seal series and heartily recommend the novels of this author.
Again, Suz is amazing in getting you into the head of the characters. The way Suz makes you feel how Jake struggles to let go of Daisy is just incredible. You DO NEED to read "Hawken's Heart" first or you won't understand this book in its depth. I would like to see a bit more of the SEAL action that Suz usually puts in there, but it is great.
The older man and the younger woman...can I find me one of those? Maybe not that age difference but wow, it wants you to root for them from the start.
You don't know how it going to play out. Some parts where going slow...I really wanted the action to pick up. I loved the last few chapters. It tells you all about team work, love, just the power of all of that, just drawls you in.
Actually, the beginning where the men where injured and thinking about the families back home. What they where missing about them...The story pulled me in from the moment the book started.
I love this author... her characters are great and the different stories keep me completely involved through the entire book. I love the fact that the characters are depicted with intelligence... I find myself intrigued.

Although this is no Troubleshooters it is pretty good. By the description I wasn't sure I was going to like it as much as the others and the fact that the hero's wife died in the last book made me a little leery to read this. In fact it is the best one yet in this series. This series is more dated since it was written in 1990's and there has been such a surge of technological advances since. Narrator was pretty good nothing spectacular though.
I was very reluctant to purchase this book. I listened to the sample and just couldn’t figure out how it would tie in… I wish I would have purchased it sooner. It is one of the best in the series. It is a brilliant story. The characters are so likable and imperfect. What a beautiful love story with a fantastic dose of adrenalin.

I may not love love love all of Brockmans fiction but I do always like and enjoy it. This is one of her exceptional novels staring the reoccurring cast of Navy Seals Team Alpha and their lives and loves.
An excellent story arc, well written dialog and love scenes and great dialog gives consistent quality entertainment - even though this series is an older one, the story remains solid.
Allyson Johnson narrates very nicely-she manages to give some steamy love scenes the delicate handling they need and that takes a good narrator- She also does different characters very well.
Well worth my credit.
