  Booklist 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 Copyright 2018 Booklist
