Publisher's Summary

For years, operative James Nash has performed ultra-covert "Black Ops" missions for The Agency, but when he decides to walk away from their dirty work, his corrupt bosses aren't about to let him go. After Nash is nearly assassinated, Troubleshooters team leader Lawrence Decker launches a skillful deception to neutralize the threat and protect his friend. With the FBI's help, Decker fakes Nash's death, then brings him to a safe house with his fiancee, Tess Bailey, to recover from his injuries and strategize their next move.

Only a handful of people know that Nash is still alive - and fellow Troubleshooters Dave Malkoff, Sophia Ghaffari, and receptionist Tracy Shapiro aren't among them. Believing that Nash is dead and that Decker has begun a romantic relationship with Tess, Sophia settles for second best and begins a love affair with Dave, who has adored her for years. But Tracy puts two and two together, discovering the truth about Nash - much to Decker's dismay.

As passions flare, Decker struggles to keep his scheme afloat, and to keep Nash alive. But when he finds himself targeted for death, the game turns even more perilous, and Sophia, Tracy, and Dave are swept into the deadly play. Under fire and racing to unmask their relentless adversary, the Troubleshooters know that the closer they get, the greater the risks. But sacrifices and consequences come with the territory. Forced to choose between love and loyalty, they are no longer just solving a crime - they're fighting for survival.

Incredibly satisfying and surprising!

Wow! The major complaint of a reviewer before me happened to be my personal favorite theme in the book. Don't let it put you off, you may love it! It was really funny, riveting and filled with tension. Wow! This was definitely my favorite of all the Troubleshooters books so far. It would help if you have read at least Flashpoint and perhaps Into the Storm before this book in order to best appreciate the truly elegant twists in the romantic story arcs. Brockmann gives us enough backstory to fill in the blanks, but nothing can really compare to understanding the characters the way you do if you get to know them over several books. Not to mention the fact that all the books in the series are great. Dark of Night is the only one of the Troubleshooters series that I have given a five star rating to, however and I believe only one of two that have a five star rating from me out of something like 200 audible titles listened to and rated. Masterful storytelling!
Just, WOW.

Needs a better female reader.

I'm a huge fan of Suzanne Brockmann. I love her characters and enjoy following their lives from book to book. Each story stands alone but is enriched by reading the other stories.

I think Renee Laudmann has an irritating little-girl voice which spoils the story. I doubt I'll buy another audio book if she is the reader. I think I'd rather read it myself.

The story itself gets a five rating. The reader a zero.

Really enjoyed this one!

We all know that Brockmanns books are not what they used to be, but I really enjoyed this one! There were two story lines running side by side in this book, easier to follow than the last couple. I loved the dynamics between Deck and Tracy and got more than one look from people as I burst out laughing while out walking my dogs (thats when I listen to my books). I really needed a distraction after the death of my niece and found this book to be a very welcomed escape! I would recomend this book, but if you are not familar with Brockmann you should really start with book 1.

GREAT BOOK!!

BROCKMANN IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE AUTHORS, I AM ESPECIALLY FOND OF THIS SERIES. LAWLOR & RAUDMAN ARE EXCELLENT NARRATORS.
DARK OF NIGHT WEAVES A TALE OF INTRIGUE. YOU GET A BIG DOSE OF SOME MY FAVORITE CHARACTERS IN THE SERIES.
THE CONTENT IS FOR ADULTS ONLY.

Unbelievable

I can't believe how many bad reviews this book received. I love the Troubleshooters series and truly enjoy SB writing. I also don't understand how people can pickup a book in the middle of a series - start at #1 and the books mean so much more!

A good story - bad sex

While the intimate relations between characters is important the amount and repetitiveness of the sexual encounters got in the way of an otherwise good story. In addition, the author wrote these sexual encounters as one dimensional. It did create genuine sexual encounters. It was at the level of adolesent sex.

too much....

A great plot spoiled by the author's piling on of page after page of touchy-feely dialogue and ridiculously PC characters such as a gay married pair of body guards and love-struck hit men. It could have been one third shorter. In printed form you could more easily skip over the glop.
