Publisher's summary

A deadly poisoning, a stolen painting, and a criminal mastermind challenge the skills of FBI Agents Emma Sharpe and Colin Donovan as never before in their latest high-stakes case. New York Times best-selling author Carla Neggers has crafted a gripping novel of international intrigue and suspense not to be missed.

Emma Sharpe is recovering from a shattering loss while her husband, Colin Donovan, is deep into his latest undercover mission. So they’re grateful to enjoy a peaceful autumn weekend together on the Southern Maine coast to celebrate Colin’s brother Andy’s wedding.

But the peace is short-lived when Kevin Donovan, a marine patrol officer, receives a call to check on suspected food poisoning at a party aboard a yacht. Colin decides to tag along. He is surprised to recognize one of the victims as an undercover British intelligence officer, and it quickly becomes evident they’re dealing with something very sinister. At the same time, a valuable painting by Irish artist Aoife O’Byrne - a friend of Emma and Colin’s - is missing from the yacht, and the connections make the investigation international and extremely personal.

Emma and Colin discover they are up against a deadly foe who plans to strike again. With the help of HIT, their small, elite Boston-based FBI team, they must foil an attack that will have devastating effects. It’s a case that will alter their lives beyond anything they’ve ever imagined....

Read all nine books in a month!!

I have throughly enjoyed this series, so much so that I've listened from the beginning to current in less than a month! It's the family of characters that really draw you in. You might think to predict what could happen next with any of the characters but you will often be surprised. This review is for the entire series to date and each novel has positive and negative. If you prefer to find a great series, understanding how series flow up and down, this one is very enjoyable. Highly recommend!!

Rival’s Break

The story here is ok, not great. Characters are a bit under developed. The biggest thing for me is that the narration is stilted, almost like it’s a mechanical voice. I didn’t realize when I purchased this book that it was number 9 in the series. Maybe if I had started with the first one I would have enjoyed it more.
