She'll defend her friend until the bitter end--but is she in over her head?It's not every day you see your childhood friend and onetime crush on national news. Jackie Sellers just wishes it were under different circumstances. She can't believe that Ian Lockwood is wanted in connection with a terrorist plot, and she's determined to find him and help him clear his name. Unfortunately, she's not the only one looking for him. The FBI wants him captured. The bad guys want him dead. Ian just wants to stay alive long enough to prove his innocence and prevent a catastrophe.
Lynette Eason delivers nonstop action as Jackie and Ian travel a dangerous road--one that may lead straight to destruction.
Lynette Eason never fails to deliver plenty of action and scattered clues that keep you guessing what's really going on until the very end. This plot could be taken right from the script of a blockbuster movie. The government tries to cover up the disappearance of live smallpox virus from a high security lab by saying there's been a small outbreak somewhere and people should get the vaccine just in case. That's all part of a larger conspirace that could kill thousands. The opening scene is Jackie breaking into Ian's house to find out what happened to him, and it doesn't slow down from there. I enjoyed the character of Jackie, she's smart and spunky.
I was hoping the people from Operation Refuge would have a slightly bigger role in this story, but that's really not a big deal. I wasn't terribly fond of Ian, partly because his back story of going from a scrawny, bookish teen to a ripped martial artist in the 10 years they didn't see each other made me roll my eyes a bit, but overall it's a fun read and I would definitely recommend it, as well as the two previous books in this series. They can be read in any order without difficulty or confusion.
