Publisher's Summary

Physicist Scarlett Stone is the daughter of the man considered to be the most notorious Russian agent in FBI history. With her father dying in prison she's determined to prove he's innocent, but time is running out. Using a false identity, she gains access to the Russian ambassador's Christmas party, searching for evidence of a set-up.
Former Navy SEAL, now FBI Special Agent, Matt Lazlo, is instantly attracted to Scarlett but life is too complicated to pursue a politician's daughter. When he discovers she lied to him about her identity, he hunts her down with the ruthless efficiency he usually reserves for serial killers.
Not only does Scarlett's scheme fail, it puts her in the sights of powerful people who reward unwanted curiosity with brutality. The FBI - and Matt - aren't thrilled with her, either. But as agents involved in her father's investigation start dying, and the attempts to stop Scarlett intensify, Matt and his colleagues begin to wonder. Could they have a traitor in their midst? As Scarlett and Matt dig for the truth they begin to fall passionately for one another. But the real spy isn't about to let anyone uncover their secrets, and resolves to remain firmly in the shadows - and for that to happen, Matt and Scarlett have to die.

Espoinage and the Search for Justice

Cold Light of Day begins with Scarlett trying to clear her father's name for being the most notorious FBI agent who turned traitor to his country. Attending a party at the Russian Embassy with her friend April LeMay and pretending that she is April's sister, Sarah Lemay was the first step, Scarlett could get in to bug the ambassador's office except somebody has beaten her to it. Scarlett could have walked away but she lost one of her earrings which put her on very dangerous people's radar, who don't want the case to be reopen.

FBI Agent Matt Lazlo stepped in as a representative for his boss, FBI ASAC Lincoln Frazer at the Russian Embassy party. He bumped into Scarlett who spilled champagne on him. He felt the instant attraction to Scarlett. He wanted to ask Scarlett for her number except he didn't feel comfortable to be dating anyone while he has family obligation.

When Matt discovered that Scarlett has lied to him of who she really is and what she attempted to do, he arrested her. As more people are being hurt and start dying, the FBI and Matt are starting to wonder if Scarlett's claim that they have imprisoned the wrong man for being a spy.

Cold Light of Day really have non-stop action. The action doesn't stay with the main characters. It gets spread out between the secondary characters in the story. The only thing that the readers/listeners know is that there is still a spy in the FBI Agency working with the Russians.

I love the cat and mouse game in the story. The Russians and the spy are trying to draw out Scarlett by attacking people Scarlett cares about. Matt and Scarlett are trying to stay one step ahead them from being killed and trying to figure who they can trust. There are so many twists and turns especially with the secondary characters who could possible be a spy(ies).

The narrator, Eric Dove did an excellent job. There are so many players in this story, it is amazing that he could give different voices to the characters. I hope he continues to narrate for the Cold Justice series.

I was given this audiobook by the author in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated or influence in any way for writing this review.

Great Story! Great Narration

This was a great story. Loved the espionage, spies, kidnappings and mystery solving. Wonderful characters too. I really liked Scarlett, she was had a good sense of humor and didn't really have any TSTL moments. She was smart and witty. I liked the hero Matt too. Great character. He had no deep dark issues or I am not good enough's for her. That is a nice change in a story.

There was a lot of great dialogue through the entire story. Love lots of dialogue. The chemistry between the h/h was very good. It felt real not forced. There is one nicely written sex scene, not erotica.

I think this might have been my favorite of the 3 stories so far.

As for the narration. Fantastic! Eric Dove does such a good job of giving everyone their own distinct voice and does the female characters very well!

I really hope the next book, Cold Fear (Cold Justice Book 4) comes out on audible soon!
