My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Another thrilling saga with the dynamic cast of mercenaries and assassins.
Almost all of the characters story lines are started in a previous book so I recommend reading this series in order. We met Trevor Callaghan and Isabel Roma in the previous two books. When we first met Trevor he was on a suicide mission due to the loss of his wife. Isabel was paired with him on a couple of missions over the years and managed to bring him back from his brink of despair. But once she’d done that and saw there was something beginning to spark between them she ran for five months. Now she is back and realizes she needs to do the right thing and go to Trevor and apologize. But shortly after arriving at the compound a full on attack is launched against them leaving a few secondary characters dead. Right before the attack Jim Morgan who heads up the mercenaries disappears and they fear whoever attack them is responsible for his disappearance. With their base destroyed Isabel suggest they go to one of her boss Noelle’s safe locations to regroup and figure out what is going on.
The complexities of both the men (the mercenaries) and the women (the assassins) only get more frustrating in this book. Noelle the leader of the assassins is one cold blooded woman but she agrees to lead the team of mercenaries in the fact finding mission of figuring out who is after them and where there leader is even though she hates Jim Morgan. An interesting twist was presented in this book between her and one of the more deadly mercenaries. All this did was leave me screaming at the book wanting to know what is deal between her and Morgan. Don’t take my ramblings there to mean I didn’t like the book. I loved it. I love every character in this series even though the author’s slow torturous revealing of the history of certain characters is driving me nuts. But hey that means I am for sure invested in all the future books in this series because I have to know what the h – e – double l is going on…
