FBI Special Agent Nora English heads the domestic terrorism unit in Sacramento and she’s assembled a task force to investigate a series of troubling arson cases that appear to be connected and targeted towards specific companies. The latest one, however, went further when the body of one of the partners was found in the charred ruins. Security specialist Duke Rogan is taking this personally as his company installed the compromised security system. He’s joined the task force, which is not only searching for the arsonists but the research animals that were taken and represent a biotech hazard.
This wasn’t Duke and Nora’s first meeting and he’s been trying to get her attention on a personal level for about two years. The romance progressed nicely without over- or underwhelming the main plot. She’s got a unique history with special insight into the psychographics of these terrorists. The opening prologue provides that insight and it was extremely helpful in not only understanding her but critical elements of the case. He’s got an equally compelling background and we finally learn more about the Rogan brothers. I loved the pace of this story as well as the procedurals of the investigation. There are lots of clues to keep your mind spinning a host of theories and that’s where I like to be in these kind of thrillers.
I had no idea this would be the most exciting of the books in this trilogy and it never let up. It takes a big, surprising turn that I had an inkling about but still was unprepared for the breadth of it. The narrator was excellent, giving distinctions to the most important characters and doing some fine storytelling. If you can listen to this book you I highly recommend you do so. It was a great ending to a really good series.
