Assistant District Attorney Sydney "Syd" Cooper won her most recent case, putting Doug Avery behind bars. She is looking forward to a vacation at a Mexican resort which begins the next day. In fact, Syd is en route home to pack when Lilly, her best friend since second grade, calls her on the cell phone.

Lilly is an investigative reporter and needs to meet with Syd as soon as possible. Syd pulls up at the meeting spot just in time to see some guys in a van kidnap Lilly. Forget the vacation! Syd is determined to locate Lilly. Was the kidnapping related to the investigation Lilly is doing on the car wreck of a senator's daughter? Was it related to the ex-husband who is out for custody of their six-year-old girl? Was it simply for ransom?

Former special forces (DELTA) captain Jake Sloan has finally put the past behind him. Then the FBI approaches him to help bring down Victor van Heusen, Jake's former commander, who is believed to be supplying weapons to terrorists. To do this, Jake must return to Philadelphia and reside in an apartment across the hall from Syd's. (Doug Avery is an employee of van Heusen.) Jake must gain Syd's trust in order to find out if she knows anything about van Heusen, even indirectly. Now bullets are flying and time is running out.

This is the main plot but there is more going on than I state in the synopsis. The story is full of twists and I kept finding myself surprised. Author Christiane Heggan has composed a legal/police thriller that will keep you mentally on your toes and physically on the edge of your seat. Extremely well done.

Assistant District Attorney Sydney Cooper's best friend is kidnapped and Sydney finds herself investigating who and why. Former Delta forces agent Jake Sloan is roped in by the FBI to investigate his ex-military sergeant who has opened a military compound. Even the local Senator is somehow involved.

This is a real page turner and a super quick read (less than 3 hours). These pages practically turned themselves. A well-written storyline that kept me guessing all the way to the last chapter. This is my first Christiane Heggan book but definitely not my last.
