Hard to believe its was 10 books ago when we were first introduced to ex-CIA agent Dagan Zoelner. Now we finally get his story and as per all BKI books its a equal mixture of action, romance and bad guys wrecking havoc.
The continued hunt for the illusive Spider has Dagan, Emily, Christian, Ace and CIA Agent Chelsea Duvall (whose on loan to BKI) in England with Chelsea working undercover for bad guy Morrison who they suspect of being the Spider. When she is caught after completing her mission a price is put on her head and the team scrambling to get her back to the US in one piece..
For a while two couple have been dancing around each other – Dagan and Chelsea and Christian and Emily. It was nice to finally get more back story on Dagan and Chelsea and the history between them that goes back to when Dagan was fired from the CIA. Dagan has a bit of a chip on his shoulder about the past and Chelsea is eatin up with guilt over a secret she knows about that incident that got him fired. The sexual tension between these two was explosive. The suspense of trying to stay a step ahead of Morrison and his team kept you on the edge of your seat.
As with all the books in the series its not just about the main couple. Christian and Emily are still bickering while trying to ignore their feelings for each other and this time around Ace was the comic relief who can certainly give Ozzie a run for his money in the humor department.
Lots of things left open at the end of this one which I assume will be picked up in the next book which will be Christian and Emily’s.
