This is a pretty good Troubleshooters story -- tough guys, smart women, danger, sexy stuff and heroes all around. I like the way gays are accepted and treated as family without hesitation.
My only wish is that the author had left out some of the dialogue between the gay characters & shown us the scene in a more subtle way. Do gays really talk that way? I don't think ANYone could have so many lame conversations. Well maybe they could but it makes the storey sound like a group of junior high school kids giggling in biology class.

I'll start by saying, I've read every book in the series coming to this one. And simply put if you haven't I would not recommend this. If you've read the series and love Jules and are rooting for Robin, its worth the buy. Especially as, and you'll hear this in the afterwards, the profits of this book go to support equal marriage rights. all of this being said I can't say it's one of Suzanne Brockmann best books. she falls into what I consider her major shortcoming of telling rather than showing. as she's done in the last several books of the series she has a tendency to jump action scenes, and describe them later with dialogue. in this book that's used as a mechanism to try and understand what dependence of military and law enforcement go through. however it does windup with a very passive narrative. This is also not helped by an extremely monotone narrator, if you're listening to the audio book. the lively, and yes female, narration for jewels in the previous audio books brought him to life in a way that this one fell flat. This might also be with another reviewer came to see as Juvenal dialogue, as opposed to sharp sarcasm. This is my honest opinion about the book I thought someone who is a fan of the series should be commenting.
