Who is Nola Brown?
Nola is a mystery.
Nola is trouble.
And Nola is supposed to be dead.
Her body was found on a plane that mysteriously fell from the sky as it left a secret military base in the Alaskan wilderness. Her commanding officer verifies she's dead. The US government confirms it. But Jim "Zig" Zigarowski has just found out the truth: Nola is still alive. And on the run.
Zig works at Dover Air Force Base, helping put to rest the bodies of those who die on top-secret missions. Nola was a childhood friend of Zig's daughter and someone who once saved his daughter's life. So when Zig realizes Nola is still alive, he's determined to find her. Yet as Zig digs into Nola's past, he learns that trouble follows Nola everywhere she goes.
Nola is the US Army's artist-in-residence - a painter and trained soldier who rushes into battle, making art from war's aftermath and sharing observations about today's wars that would otherwise go overlooked. On her last mission, Nola saw something nobody was supposed to see, earning her an enemy unlike any other, one who will do whatever it takes to keep Nola quiet.
Together, Nola and Zig will either reveal a sleight of hand being played at the highest levels of power or die trying to uncover the US Army's most mysterious secret - a centuries-old conspiracy that traces back through history to the greatest escape artist of all: Harry Houdini.

Not His Best
Story was okay but hero was a little to whiney for my taste. Scott Brick did his best with the narration but the hero was written in a weak way. January was very good at her part of the narration. Having said that I still think it was worth my time and have no regrets about buying and listening to the book. I just think Brad has written much better.

Nola is boring. She’s does nothing during the present time of the book to prove she’s a great heroine.
Zigg is worse. There’s no reason he should take such a vested interest in Nola — he’s a 50-something year old randomly obsessed with a 20-something year old female because she once knew his deceased daughter. Hers annoying.
Didn’t enjoy the (lack of) character development and the plot was terrible, as was the “reveal” at the end.
