White Jade is a fast-paced thriller that spins a web of deceit and murder across the globe, featuring characters caught up in a deadly international power game.
Former Recon Marine Nick Carter works for the Project, a covert counter-terrorism unit reporting to the President. He's taciturn and tough, with a dark history of emotional and physical scars. Selena Connor is a beautiful, strong, and skilled linguist. When her wealthy uncle is murdered by someone looking for an ancient book about the elixir of immortality, she's thrown into Nick's dangerous world.
Nick is assigned to protect Selena and help her recover the missing text. The search escalates into a life and death adventure reaching from the gold country of California to the high country of Tibet, from Washington to Beijing. Along the way Nick and Selena begin a relationship forged by danger, combat, and betrayal. Someone is out to take over China and attack America--and Nick and Selena are right in the line of fire.
International intrigue, terrorist acts, romance, patriotism, and the threat of nuclear war form the core of the book, the first volume in a series featuring Nick, Selena, the Project and the ongoing, complex relationship between the main protagonists.

- Wayne "I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!"
I read the fifth book in this series first and thoroughly enjoyed the over-the-top spy thriller. This is the first book in the series. The author is clearly establishing the characters and settings for the series, and so is perhaps slower then future books in the series. Still, it was great fun and I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
