Jack Lancaster, consultant to the FBI, has always been drawn to the coldest of cold cases, the kind that law enforcement either considers unsolvable or else has chalked up to accidents or suicides. As a survivor of a fire, he finds himself uniquely compelled by arson cases. But the more cases Jack solves, the closer he slips into the darkness. His only solace is Winter Meadows, a meditation therapist. After particularly grisly cases, Winter can lead Jack back to peace. But as long as Quinton Zane is alive, Jack will not be at peace for long.

I am a long time reader of Jayne Ann Krentz books. I'm rarely disappointed and even when I am disappointed with an initial read. I revisit the story and find that I like the story after all. This one was no different; it was a delight and when I was away from the book I couldn't wait to get back to see how the next page was going to turn out!

It's 1996, and Reacher is still in the army. In the morning they give him a medal, and in the afternoon they send him back to school. That night he's off the grid. Out of sight, out of mind. Two other men are in the classroom - an FBI agent and a CIA analyst. Each is a first-rate operator, each is fresh off a big win, and each is wondering what the hell they are doing there. Then they find out: A jihadist sleeper cell in Hamburg, Germany, has received an unexpected visitor - a Saudi courier seeking safe haven while waiting to rendezvous with persons unknown.

Four people in a car, hoping to make Chicago by morning. An hour behind them, a man lies stabbed to death in an old pumping station. He was seen going in with two others, but he never came out. He has been executed, the knife work professional, the killers vanished. Within minutes, the police are notified. Within hours, the FBI descends, laying claim to the victim without ever saying who he was or why he was there. All Reacher wanted was a ride to Virginia. All he did was stick out his thumb. But he soon discovers he has hitched more than a ride.

A top nuclear scientist goes mad and takes an innocent family hostage at gunpoint, killing one and causing a massive standoff. A plume of radiation above New York City leads to a warehouse where, it seems, a powerful nuclear bomb was assembled just hours before. Sifting through the evidence, authorities determine that the unthinkable is about to happen: in ten days, a major American city will be vaporized by a terrorist attack.

Each is engraved with her initials.

I enjoy the recorded books. Hearing the story acted out (so to speak) gives the story something extra.
The two main characters played together nicely and additional characters meshed as well.
I liked the story. My all time favorites are her earlier works. Her one name titles. I like the fact that her ladies are progressive thinkers and they get a chance to shine. Keep in mind this is AQ's world, and we are her invited guest. I say enjoy the ride!

Each story should stand on its own merits, and this one's no different. I typically read her stories many times to have a credible opinion. After I re-read the story I will submit a better report. However, it's cute at the first read. Have fun!
