4 stars for overall readability and general enjoyment.

But 1 star for gross error. One that I had to give heavy weight to.

Author - who should have known better - completely disregards the Posse Comitatus Act. The one that has been around since 1878 and updated in 1981 and prohibits the U. S. Military (and active duty personnel thereof) to operate on American soil in a law enforcement capacity in any mode.

In March of 2009, U.S. Army MPs from Ft. Rucker were deployed into Samson, Alabama to assist local law enforcement with traffic control, securing the crime scene (following a murder spree) and (unofficially) establish a general area perimeter. A subsequent investigation revealed that the Posse Comitatus Act had been violated and there were a number of military prosecutions.

For information on the Act, see:

(5 stars) I never thought I would become an Izzy fan, but he cracked me UP! I don't think I have ever laughed so much during a sex scene. As for Jenk, while I've liked his character for a while, he is definitely more "perfectly flawed" than I had expected. Brockmann did an excellent job making both Jenk and Lindsey simultaneously admirable and messed up. She's totally right to call him on his interchangeable brides, but she's downright cruel at times and blinds herself to her own emotions and motivations. Jenk is awesome, but not as much of a paragon as some of the other heroes in the Troubleshooters series. The plot was intense; torture is always hard for me to think about and some of the gory details didn't bear too much reflection. That said, it was another excellent book, accompanied by a sweet bonus short story about Sam, Alyssa, and Jules.

even though the killer was evil it was done in a way to make the story intense but not a sick and twisted way..
for a romatic suspense this one was good and kept me wanting to know more.

Trouble shooter's is getting better and better hoping to have more adventures even better than the last.

Probably one of the best in Suzanne Brockmann's Troubleshooters sereies.Lots of suspense thrills and chills. Lots of action, and human interest, especially with the lead couple. I really liked Lindsey and Mark. As engaging a couple as Sam and Alyssa.
