"Linda Howard has seamlessly melded thrilling sensuality and heart-pounding dramatic tension. Now she brings back the elusive hero who first appeared in her acclaimed page-turner Kill and Tell- in a new blockbuster that is part suspense,part passion and pure Linda Howard."

A convoluted spy story, a steamy romance⦠all in all, a very good book! I love that the villain isn't just inherently evil as in so many other books. Linda Howard is fast becoming one of my favorite romantic-suspense authors.

Howard delivers another great tale as per her usual. John Medina is one hot man and Niema more than gives him a run for his money. They complement each other perfectly.

The man in this book is very hard, but in his line of work, you need to be. The story is well written, so if you like Linda Howards' other books you will like this one too.

This is where John Medina gets his own story. Medina was introduced in Kill and Tell. For the longest time I didn't buy this because the back cover didn't appeal to me and I didn't connect it with Medina from Kill and Tell; but I finally bought it and I LOVE it. She's one of the few authors that I will buy in hardback and she's on my keeper bookshelf for life.
This is a wonderful story that I keep reading over and over again. In fact I'm going to go read it again right now!

I LOVED this book. MORE than Kill and Tell! He was terribly tortured. Staying away from her when he had loved her for so many years but knowing that he couldn't offer her much of a life together. Knowing that he had made the right choices over and over but that she would probably hate him for them.
The villain was a realistic person with human motives. Great book!

CIA agent John Medina and electronics expert Niemi Burdock share a violent past: the two were part of a covert operation that went tragically wrong, resulting in the death of several people. Now, five years later, their paths cross again and John, whose love for Niemi has only grown over time, is determined to keep her in his life for good. Having spent the intervening five years living a solitary, staid existence--due to feelings of guilt over the ill-fated operation--Niemi is somewhat reluctant to reenter the shadowy world she once inhabited. Still, she can't resist the lure and excitement of danger when John asks her to join him on his latest mission to discover the origins of a deadly new explosive already in use by terrorists.

Concocting a plan to reveal the source of the explosive, the two enter into a dangerous masquerade, walking a tightrope between safety and death, while passion boils beneath the surface. Unaware of John's feelings, Niemi fights her physical response to the legendary agent as her emotions, in frozen limbo for the last five years, thaw with astonishing speed.

First introduced in Kill and Tell, agent John Medina is as intriguing as the perilous world he operates in. Watching him in action, à la James Bond, is exhilarating--as is the single-minded intensity of his feelings for Niemi, whose ability to hold her own with John--on both a personal and professional level--and with the host of terrorists, spies, and double-dealers the pair encounter is impressive to say the least. Throw in a couple of chilling chase scenes, some romantic interludes hot enough to peel paint from the walls, and one or two bigger-than-life internationally connected characters, and you've got the latest from Linda Howard--a romantic thriller that's sure to be coming soon to a bestseller list near you.
