Someone is trying to kill Museum Curator Summer Hawthorne. She is the owner of a priceless ice-blue ceramic bowl that everyone wants to get their hands on. Shirosama, a leader of a religious cult, needs the bowl for a ceremony that will signal the beginning of terrorists strikes around the world. Committee operative Takashi O'Brien wants to make sure neither the bowl nor Summer fall into the wrong hands, even if he has to kill her to keep her quiet.

This book has a lot of action that keeps the story rolling. But, I thought the romance in this book reminded me too much of the romance in the previous book of this series. Taka is on a mission and has his orders that Summer must not be taken alive by the Shirosama. He is willing to kill her, but something keeps stopping him. I understood his reasoning so it didn't bother me. I didn't understand Summer knowing that this guy is planning on killing her, and sticking around for it when she has a chance to get away. I thought that was just too dumb. So, I liked the story and thought the hero was interesting, but wasn't real happy with the heroine. My rating: 3.5 Stars.
