The main character was a great tough take no prisoners individual. A CIA agent Reese Whitiaker goes undercover in a terrorist organization for one thing and finds out there is a bigger problem. Reese is constantly tested and holds her own. She is coming off of the loss and contemplating divorcing her other half who also is a CIA agent. The flow of the book was okay, I wasn't riveted, but I do wish there was more interaction on the romance part with the two characters. The majority of the book concentrated on Reese and her missions, including a mission to save her husband. I don't know if this can be constituted as romance, but it was okay if you like a strong female character.
