Publisher's Summary

"Bodman's hard-won information and sheer storytelling talent make this a book to remember.” (LEE CHILD, #1 worldwide bestselling author of the Jack Reacher series)

"Karna Bodman’s Trust But Verify is a riveting page-turner you won’t want to put down!" (CARLA NEGGERS, bestselling author of Imposter's Lure)

Samantha Reid, the brilliant Director of the White House Office of Homeland Security, is enjoying a rare evening away from Washington at a Florida charity ball when a bomb sends the well-heeled attendees stampeding into the night. Narrowly escaping the blast, Reid returns to the White House, where she has been trailing the massacres and illicit arms sales of a shadowy group of Russian oligarchs... all of whom want her dead. Caught in an ever-tightening spiral of lies and ruthless hitmen, Reid must race the clock against her assassins. But she's not alone. When FBI special agent Brett Keating discovers Samantha was the target of the Florida bomb, he resolves to protect her, while also unravelling a brazen plot that threatens the lives of international financial leaders and stock markets worldwide.

I liked it!

A bit amateurish compared to some of the more experienced writers in this genre, with the characters or dialogue seeming a tiny bit cartoonish occasionally. The Russian mafia guys felt that way. But it's a minor complaint. I did actually enjoy a softer version of this genre with fewer descriptions of weapons and a bit of romance instead. And I never read romances, so go figure. I will likely read more by her and I don't know where this fits in in terms of the order they were written. If it's an earlier one, perhaps the one little problem gets remedied. I did get the feeling she knew the ins and outs of Washington, however, and that rang true. I'm pleased to find a new author and I'm off to find another by her right away.
