Summary
With his dying breath, Carl Venable, head of the CIA task force on terrorism and Jude Brandon's final link to terrorist ringleader Max Huber, gives Brandon a mandate: to keep his daughter, Rachel, safe at any cost. But Rachel Venable has a shocking, twisted past of her own, one that comes rushing back after her medical clinic in Guyana is attacked by Huber - the same man who murdered her father and kept her imprisoned for months. Brandon and Catherine Ling, Rachel's longtime ally and fierce protector, are determined to keep Rachel out of danger, but she knows that it's impossible to stay hidden when Max Huber wants you dead. As Rachel and Brandon race against the clock to bring Huber down before he can orchestrate a nuclear explosion that will lay waste to the west coast, they also fight a growing attraction to each other - an attraction that could prove just as dangerous as Huber himself

Review
  • Before dying in pursuit of the merciless terrorist Max Huber, CIA chief Carl Venable entrusts the safety of his estranged daughter, Rachel, to operative Jude Brandon, who must rescue her from Huber's henchmen after a raid on her medical clinic in Guyana. Safely back in the States, Rachel is apprised of her father's death but defies his wishes when she insists on working with Venable's protégé, Catherine Ling, to avenge his murder and prevent Huber's proposed terrorist attack on San Francisco. Working within and without the spy agency's infrastructure and coping with its power-hungry leader, Claire Warren, Rachel confronts her painful past as a teenage captive of the Taliban and relies on the lessons learned from her savior, Hu Chang, to survive this latest challenge. Although the high-stakes race to thwart Huber provides the framework for Johansen's latest thriller, the sexual cat-and-mouse dynamic between Jude and Rachel supplies an equally alluring narrative. Johansen's loyal and never-before readers alike will want more of this newly introduced and provocative pair. -- Carol Haggas (Reviewed 8/1/2018) (Booklist, vol 114, number 22, p38)
  • In bestseller Johansen’s pulse-pounding 23rd Eve Duncan novel (after Shattered Mirror), former Army Ranger Jude Brandon honors the dying wish of CIA operative Carl Venable, who’s been mortally wounded while on a mission in Montana, to protect his daughter, Rachel Venable, from Max Huber, the leader of the Red Star terrorist organization. Huber believes that Rachel, who runs a medical clinic in the jungles of Guyana, is responsible for the death of his father, the powerhouse behind Red Star, and wants revenge. Jude and his team manage to extract Rachel, whom Huber has plagued in the past, from her jungle clinic before Huber can capture her. Jude delivers Rachel to a safe house in San Francisco, where she soon starts working with an informant who claims to have information about a plan Huber has to destroy the city. The mutual attraction between Jude and Rachel generates plenty of romantic heat. Highly complex characters and a stunning conclusion make this a winner. Series fans won’t mind that Eve receives only passing mention. Agent: Andrea Cirillo, Jane Rotrosen Agency. (Oct.) --Staff (Reviewed 08/20/2018) (Publishers Weekly, vol 265, issue 34, p)
