Publisher's Summary

Suzanne Brockmann has taken romantic suspense by storm with her action-packed thrillers. Now she has written the most gripping novel of her career - an unforgettable story of an explosive hostage situation in which two people are caught between the call of duty and the lure of destiny.

For Lieutenant Teri Howe, one of the best helicopter pilots in the naval reserves, nothing stands in the way of her passion for flying - until a past mistake surfaces, jeopardizing everything she's worked for.

Senior Chief Stan Wolchonok has made a career of tackling difficult challenges, so it's no surprise when he comes to Teri's aid, knowing that his personal code of honor - and perhaps his heart - will be at risk. But when a jet carrying an American senator's daughter is hijacked, Stan's unflinching determination and Teri's steadfast courage are put to the ultimate test. The rescue mission will be daring and dangerous. But somewhere between peril and resolution, the line between friends and lovers begins to blur, pushing both their lives over the edge.

Over The Edge

Love, love, love this story! I love both Teri and Stan's and the secondary story of Helga's childhood. I have read this over and over but this is the first time listening to it. The narrators are great and bring such terrific depth to the characters. What a pleasure to listen to.

A great series -

Started in the middle and have been collecting other episodes ever since. though a series each stands alone. In this and others the author introduces current social dilemmas with sensitivity that raises books from mere romances. The thriller side is taught and keeps attention riveted. A thoroughly good listen!

The one that hit me the most

This is the book in the series that grabbed my emotions the most.
Brockmann does a great job of writing characters that you can identify with and half fall in love with. She also does a great job with multiple storylines in the same book.
You’ve got Sr Chief Stan Wolchonok and Lt Teri Howe in present day; each with their own challenges.
You’ve got Helga Rosen with both her current day challenges and her past challenges from WWII Denmark.
Sam and Alyssa reconnect and learn more about each other, but...
Then there’s the incredible Gina Vitagliano and her interactions with negotiator Max Bhagat. Be ready to have your emotions pummeled and restored.

If interested, Brockmann’s compilation Headed for Trouble has a short story about Frank O’Leary’s visit to his brother in New Orleans ending on a happy note. (Be aware that the other two novellas are set well into the future of the series.)

One part of the story that has remained with me through the years is how Denmark reacted to the Nazi occupation and how they were held accountable for their behavior.

Lawlor does a great job with narration. Ewbank is growing into the series.

One of my favorites

Great read! This is one of my favorite books from the Troubleshooters series and Stan is one of my favorite heros. I love Stan and Terri's story. I'm looking forward to the rest of Sam and Alyssa's story and Max and Gina's.

You probably already have this book in your librar

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I am getting very disgusted with Audible because they are offering several books with the same title/author! I just bought and downloaded this book only to find out I already had it but with a different narrator! I'm listening to the Troubleshooters series again and thought I had missed purchasing book 3 because when I clicked on the series button, this version came up for book 3, so I used a credit to purchase it. The same thing happened to me with one of Nora Roberts trilogies. The one thing I really liked about Audible (before) is they let you know if you already had a book in your library. I'm very annoyed that I now have to do a thorough research before I make a purchase!

One of my favs of the series

This is one of my absolute favorites of the Troubleshooters series. Not only am I a huge fan of age gap – I love that both Stan & Teri can’t quite conceive that the other person would be interested in them.

Brockmann is famous for her story within a story and bringing together numerous interesting plot points to a thrilling end. At nearly 16 hours – this is days worth of entertaining and engaging action, suspense, romance, and drama. Weaved through this is a bittersweet love story told in flashback to WWII Denmark and their occupation by Nazi Germany.

Continuing storylines for Sam & Alyssa, Wildcard, Jules, and Max as well as the introduction of characters you’ll be seeing in future books like Gina, MaryLou, Izzy, Gillman, Muldoon, and more.

I cannot say enough fabulous things about Patrick Lawlor and Melanie Ewbank. They are both stellar narrators – voices, accents, emotions, and giving each character their own unique sound. They also have this way of slightly changing their “reading voice” for each character so that it’s unique from that person’s perspective. It is incredibly dynamic and not found in many narrations.

Note: I originally read this. Then I found our library had the original audiobooks of the first 6 books (single narrators, various). THEN! Then the series was rerecorded in Dual Narration style with Patrick Lawlor & Melanie Ewbank. I’m in LOVE with these narrations. I own them all. And if it were possible to wear out digital copies of something, I’d have done it by now.

Strange ...

I liked the storyline but a bunch of sniveling Navy seals...really. Many self-absorbed people who were more focused on booty than the hostages. Who needs to sleep, to be alert for their call to duty, when you can just follow booty around around like a puppy. Some of this is laugh out loud funny but some is just too far fetched. The historical aspects were interesting.

Warning: Don't start unless you have time. Contains highly charged suspense.

Another winner for Ms. Brockmann. As with the previous stories in this series, there are multiple sub stories taking place simultaneously.
Teri Howe & Senior Chief Stanley
Max & Gina
Scarlett & Alicia (Continuing)
WWII story from Holland & Part of Stanley family.
