Sharla Ratliff is done with having her heart broken. Her new dating rules are simple. No emotion. No expectation of commitment. Sex purely for her own physical enjoyment. Then, she meets Marcel Alexander. The attractive lawyer has all the trappings of success: a thriving career, women at his beck and call, and enough money in the bank for the finer things in life. Their lust for each other doesn't just create sparks, it sets off explosions. After a shocking series of events place both of their careers in jeopardy, can they keep everything they've worked for from going up in smoke?

After 9/11, the United States made one of the most secretive and dangerous deals in its history. The evidence against the powerful Saudis who coordinated the attack would be buried. In return, King Faisal would promise to keep the oil flowing and deal with the conspirators in his midst. When the king's own nephew is discovered funding ISIS, the president suspects that the Saudis never intended to live up to their agreement.

I loved the story and the new narrator! I like the fact that Rapp formed an alliance with former enemies! Great story and characters and I couldn’t wait to go walking to listen to this intense story! Looking forward to the next Mitch Rapp story and hopefully Scott Brick narrating it!

The nature of the story was so real and heartbreaking. The narration was excellent! My heart broke for Mama Mae and Papa. I could not stop listening to this story. I so wanted Luvenia to end up with Will. And poor Bell and Beady. I wanted Bell to have those papers to move to Philadelphia. So glad Ben handled that evil teacher. Thank you for writing this story..

Denise and Derrek Shaw are the perfect American couple. Happily married for 15 years, they have a wonderful daughter, Mackenzie, successful careers, and a beautiful house in a posh Chicago suburb. They are attractive, respected...and hiding a shocking secret: a dangerous addiction to drugs. It started innocently enough. Denise occasionally used prescription drugs to help her deal with the long hours and demanding nature of her job. Derrek, also under pressure at work, began using cocaine socially with some of his colleagues. They can quit whenever they want to. At least, that's what Denise would like to believe....
