Publisher's Summary

When an assassin tries to kill undercover DEA agent Tucker Pankov the same week his boss is taken out, Tucker has good reason to be paranoid. And when other members of his elite team are not only targeted but stripped of top secret security clearance, Tucker has one shot at discovering who wants them dead and why. So he kidnaps the only woman he thinks can save them.

Brilliant NSA analyst Karen Stafford doesn't like being forced into anything, especially by someone she doesn't trust. Yet after a hijacked US-owned drone starts attacking government installations, resulting in mass casualties, Karen has to take Tucker's side. Now, two unlikely allies must unite to prevent an escalating and unthinkable terrorist conspiracy. But as Tucker and Karen grow intimate, they realize that the conspiracy runs deep and their enemies are closer than anyone realized.

Contains mature themes.

Best one..

Any additional comments?

So, I finished this book at 3:00 this morning and I have to tell you it’s my favorite of the Deadly Ops series. There seemed to be excitement on every page. I said the last book was the best but I take that back. THIS is the best of all of them.

There was a lot of sexual tension without being overdone. The first book, Targeted, there was something sexual on every page, just about. But this one had the right amount of everything.

And even though Karen had a TSTL moment it didn’t last long and she did help herself out of it.

And the characters were simply awesome. The good: Tucker, Karen, Cole, Burkhart, Kane, Brooks, Padilla, and I was sorry about Max Southers. The Bad: Hillenbrand, Rayford, and the awful DEA agent that I’m not naming.

I have to admit that Tucker was a killing machine, never letting the bad guys get the drop on him and killing without regret. He was one terrific hero. And Karen was a wonderful heroine. She never said stupid things like, “did you have to kill him?” She was an analyst for the NSA but she was never a damsel in distress.

I loved this book.

The F-BOMB was used 76 times and I think every one of them was necessary. But I know how some of you are. So, if you don’t like swearing don’t buy this book.

As to the narrator: Sophie Eastlake is one of my favorites! The men sound like men and that's the most important to me, and she reads with emotions, which some narrators do not. I'm always happy when I see she's reading the audible I'm buying.

Another great book by Katie Reus

Had a really good plot, good characters, and a really good ending. I hope the author continues writing stories around these characters. I have enjoyed them all.

Suspense never ending !

Would you consider the audio edition of Edge of Danger to be better than the print version?

I love print equally but wow the audio edition was fantastic. The narrator / voice was spot on in bringing this story to life.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Edge of Danger?

When the team along with Karen are trying to get Burkhart on their side. Tucker is determined to get his team back in good standings.

What does Sophie Eastlake bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She brings the story to life. Each character is like right in front of you or talking to you.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Deadly Ops Redemption

Another engaging story by Ms Reus

Once again, Ms Reus gives us a story that keeps us on the edge of seats, biting our nails, and our hearts pounding.
This time our main characters are DEA agent Tucker Pankov, and NSA analyst Karen Stafford. They meet when Tucker and 3 of his DEA co-workers, kidnap her so she can help them find out who and why the four of them are being stripped of their security clearance and accused of treason. The worse part was that all of them felt awful to have had to kidnap her and scare her in thinking she was going to be tortured and /or raped. But quickly it’s made evident they wish her no harm and really need her help.
Needless to say that in between all the suspense, attempts to murder them, and trying to clear their names, Tucker and Karen are drawn to each other.
The tension and suspense is constant and even though the audiobook is long, time flies and all you want to do is have an excuse to listen to it so you can find out what’s going to happen next.
One of the things I specially like about this talented author is that her female characters are strong , independent women and that the men that fall for them are strong alpha males that respect and admire them. Also the author presents a world that is not white and black, but rather shades of gray.
A great addition to an engaging and well written series.
I want to point out that the narrator did an excellent job with the various voices of the characters.
I was gifted this audiobook. The opinions expressed are solely my own.

Not a Bad Addition to an already Incredible Series..

This is not as compelling as the previous 3 but still a good addition to the series..

The GOOD..
Sophie Eastlake's Performance is top notch as always, the emotion and the feel she puts on every characters makes the plot more alive and fun to listen to..

Characters are well defined both main and sub.. most of them just have enough portion of their stories to have their presence felt on this series..

A good and easy listening experience.. With plenty amount of suspense, less sex and enough, probably less than enough comedy with the addition of the narrator's performance, book 4 just did enough to be a good addition to this series..

The BAD..
Tucker and Karen didnt have past connections like the lead characters from the previous 3 which made them the least appreciated couple in the series so far..

Plot is pretty much predictable.. theres enough suspense to keep you hooked but not enough twist to keep you on the edge of your seat..

A little Too short.. with a mission like this, which is definitely tougher than what Jack, Cade or Levi have been through? it should have been the longest of the series..

Overall its 3.5 out of 5.. i like it and didnt feel bad paying for it..

Action packed! Loved it!!

I think this one's my favorite really! Right from the beginning there's enough to relax your mind, get a feel for the guys, follow along and WHAM! Off to races-the racing hearts that is....who is after who, did you hear that noise...will they escape, will they get the girl, will they survive what the world thinks of them?!? Awesome - can't wait for Ortiz's story to download next in 4,3,2....bye!!

Decent story, good narrator.

What did you like best about Edge of Danger? What did you like least?

I like Sophie Eastlakes narrations although the male voice sounded snobby. Characters were hard to follow who was who. Too many characters with names that were hard to remember.

Would you recommend Edge of Danger to your friends? Why or why not?

It was good, not great.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Sophie Eastlake?

Yes

Did Edge of Danger inspire you to do anything?

no
