When an assassin tries to kill undercover DEA agent Tucker Pankov the same week his boss is taken out, Tucker has good reason to be paranoid. And when other members of his elite team are not only targeted but stripped of top secret security clearance, Tucker has one shot at discovering who wants them dead and why. So he kidnaps the only woman he thinks can save them.
Brilliant NSA analyst Karen Stafford doesn't like being forced into anything, especially by someone she doesn't trust. Yet after a hijacked US-owned drone starts attacking government installations, resulting in mass casualties, Karen has to take Tucker's side. Now, two unlikely allies must unite to prevent an escalating and unthinkable terrorist conspiracy. But as Tucker and Karen grow intimate, they realize that the conspiracy runs deep and their enemies are closer than anyone realized.

So, I finished this book at 3:00 this morning and I have to tell you it’s my favorite of the Deadly Ops series. There seemed to be excitement on every page. I said the last book was the best but I take that back. THIS is the best of all of them.
There was a lot of sexual tension without being overdone. The first book, Targeted, there was something sexual on every page, just about. But this one had the right amount of everything.
And even though Karen had a TSTL moment it didn’t last long and she did help herself out of it.
And the characters were simply awesome. The good: Tucker, Karen, Cole, Burkhart, Kane, Brooks, Padilla, and I was sorry about Max Southers. The Bad: Hillenbrand, Rayford, and the awful DEA agent that I’m not naming.
I have to admit that Tucker was a killing machine, never letting the bad guys get the drop on him and killing without regret. He was one terrific hero. And Karen was a wonderful heroine. She never said stupid things like, “did you have to kill him?” She was an analyst for the NSA but she was never a damsel in distress.
I loved this book.
The F-BOMB was used 76 times and I think every one of them was necessary. But I know how some of you are. So, if you don’t like swearing don’t buy this book.
As to the narrator: Sophie Eastlake is one of my favorites! The men sound like men and that's the most important to me, and she reads with emotions, which some narrators do not. I'm always happy when I see she's reading the audible I'm buying.
