Excellent plot, interesting characters, smart dialogue = one damn good book. Sharp, witty, intriguing; I can't find enough adjectives to describe this book - one of the best I have read in a long time. A touch of romance, so don't expect a lot of explicit sex, but the storyline is so engrossing that you don't miss it or need it. Kudos to Ms. Brockmann.
Very highly recommended to anyone who loves adventure, romance, or has a brain.

Another great one from Suzanne Brockmann! I really enjoy the multiple plot lines in her books (this one has the kidnapped uncle issue, a double agent for (or is it against?) the Nazis, and a missionary worker and a man of mystery) and and how you get to see the characters in the series repeatedly from book to book. I couldn't put this one down.

When Savannah von Hopf receives a call from her uncle saying he is in trouble and needs $250,000, she has no choice but to approach Ken "Wildcard" Karmody for help. He is a Navy SEAL and can surely keep her safe from the terrorists in Indonesia. But the meeting doesn't go as planned. Savannah and Ken end up in bed where the last thing on her mind is telling him about her uncle. The next day when Ken finds out, he is furious that she lied to him. But he refuses to let Savannah go to Jakarta on her own. Soon they are met by gun wielding drug runners who want the ransom money she is carrying. Running through the jungle with various rebels on their heels, Ken and Savannah must find a way to escape this nightmare.

This is the fourth book in Suzanne Brockmann's Troubleshooter series. After I read each book I declare that it is the best in the series. This book is no different. It has great characters, a lively WWII back story, and non-stop action. Ken and Savannah are both great characters. Once again we have more of Sam and Alyssa's ongoing story arc. We were also introduced to new characters in the series, Molly and Jones. Their story kept me glued to the page. I highly recommend this book (and the whole series). My rating: 5 Stars.

This was my first Suzanne Brockman novel and I must say that it wasn't the best book I've ever read. I enjoyed the main storyline of Navy SEAL Ken Karmody and Savannah von Hopf's romance. I even liked the second storyline of Molly and Jones in Jakarta. The kidnapping and rescue mission in Indonesia happened in current time so there really was no reason for the whole WWII Hitler back story with Savannah's grandmother, Rose. Granted her autobiography was being read by various characters but it had no bearing on the storyline of Out of Control. I just don't get the point of having it in the book.

This book took longer than usual to read as it seemed to go off topic too much. There was page-after-page and in almost every chapter excerpts from Rose's autobiography. I had no interest whatsoever in Savannah's grandmothers exploits during the war. That period in time had absolutely nothing to do with what was happening in Indonesia. It got to the point were I was skipping all the excerpts just to get back to the story and get done with the book.

I have many more Brockman books so I will be reading her again but I hope that the next book doesn't have superfluous storylines. It's rather tedious and unnecessary.

Out of Control is book four of Brockmann's Team Sixteen Navy SEAL series. Let me tell you what a wonderful series this is. The first three books in this series are very hard to top, but this book, I am happy to say, lives up to my expectations. Savannah von Hopf, a lawyer back east, who is a bit of a control freak, has to deliver a ransom for her Uncle Alex. Alex is being held hostage in Jakarta. She gets the name Ken âWildCardâ Karmody from Adele, with whom she knew back in college, in the hopes that he will come with her to drop off the ransom. This is a road romance with opposites attracting.

Out of Control is actually not just Ken and Savannah's story, but three other stories as well. First, there is the continuation of Alyssa Locke and Roger âSamâ Starrett's story. Then there is Savannah's grandmother's double spy story. Finally, there are the two new characters: Molly and Jones. The previous SEAL books in this series were written the same way; stories within a story. Brockmann's ability to tell a story and grab the reader by pulling them deeply into the story is phenomenal. Normally during a book if I am pulled away from the main story line I get irritated and immediately want to skip the boring parts and get back to the good stuff. I don't know how she does it, but this doesn't happen when reading a Brockmann novel (out of the 4 that I have read). Reading her book is sort of like watching a soap opera with all the different storylines. As soon as you are engrossed in so-n-so's story they up and flip over to someone else. Brockmann's books are the same way. The beauty of Brockmann's book is that I am equally engrossed in all of the aspects. I can't seem to turn the pages fast enough.

There was one small part of the book toward the end that made me want to throw the book at the wall. This is why I rated the book a B+ instead of an A (which is what I rated the three previous books in this series). One of the characters (I'll not be naming names) really just had one of those special bonehead moments. They did something that I felt the author would really be hard pressed to resolve. She did resolve it, but I felt it was more or less quickly skimmed over and so it was a let down for me in the end.
