Описание

No one can get close to John Medina, the CIA's legendary Black Ops specialist who works in the shadows of the government's deadliest missions. He is a virtual invisible man, with no friends, many enemies, and a cloud of suspicion surrounding the death of his wife.

And no one knows the dangers better than Niema Burdock. A sharp, steely-nerved communications expert, Niema and her husband, Dallas, worked side by side with Medina on an explosive mission that went tragically wrong.

She could hear it all play out, horribly, on the radio: Dallas set off the detonators at John Medina's command — and found himself trapped in the crossfire. In a shattering blast, Niema's hope and her love were destroyed...

Now Niema has withdrawn to a quiet Intelligence position, and a safe — if predictable — existence that has helped her heal her scars from five years ago. And she never planned to see Medina again. But now John Medina needs her...

A French arms dealer is supplying international terrorist units, and John Medina must infiltrate his compound and crack the deadly ring. But only Niema can plant the undetectable bugs needed to nail the dealer — a feat that begins by going undercover and winning his trust. But when their careful strategy begins to crack, Niema and John take flight — and find their partnership sparking with an erotically charged, unquenchable electricity.

In a world of deception, one thing is clear: John Medina has once again set Niema on a free fall into danger and desire — and one can't exist without the other.

A Simon & Schuster audio production.

  • (4/5)
    Powerful beginning and an exciting action packed ending to this romantic suspense. I liked all the multiple facets of the characters but sometimes there were too many overly descriptive details. Five years after their first meeting, CIA agent John wants communications expert Niema to join him on his next mission.
  • (3/5)
    A good story but riddled with implausible twists and turns, NOT due exclusively to technological advancements made since 1999.

    Five years ago Niema Burdock lost her husband and John Medina gave the order that led to her husband's death, in front of her. Niema lives in Washington, still working for the spooks, but in a nice safe position, developing electronics for the espionage community.John Medina has an opportunity to use her again, to be near her again, to confront his feelings about her and he's not sure if he can stop himself from getting involved with her. Will she let him near her.It's not a bad read, the two characters are quite well drawn I'm just not sure that Linda Howard really filled in the dots as to why they ended up as a couple.

    If espionage really takes place the way Linda Howard writes it in this novel, then it's no wonder the CIA had everything wrong about Saddam Hussein. The first half of the book is okay, but after that it goes steadily downhill into an ending that had me laughing so hard I could barely turn the pages. Maybe people would enjoy this as a beach read, but don't quote me on that.

    Niema is a CIA operative on assignment in the Middle East with her husband, Dallas, also a CIA operative. They have only been married a short time, and Niema is devastated when the job goes awry and Dallas is killed. Darrell Tucker, aka John Medina, also a Company man, helps her get out of the country safely. Five years later, Medina is still unable to get Niema out of his mind, so when he has the opportunity to bring her in on a job, he snatches it. Niema has been playing it safe these last five years, having quit fieldwork altogether, she has developed a virtually untraceable bug. As the two live through very dangerous situations, their passion for each other is brought to a boil. A fast-paced and exciting, relatively believable plot, coupled with smoldering chemistry make this a very enjoyable read. The two main characters are quite complex, both with a lot of emotional baggage to work through in a very short period of time and while in a hazardous environment. The characters motivations and choices seem genuine, although there are some times where I thought, “If he’s worked so hard over the years to conceal his identity, why would he….” The writing style is fair to good, with only a few places where I was irritated by the sentence structure. Overall, a worthwhile read for fans of romantic suspense.
