Publisher's Summary

First the calm. Then the storm....
Escaping DC during the dog days of summer is one of the smartest moves Washington Metro Police Lieutenant Samantha Holland ever made. Beach walks aren't quite as romantic with the Secret Service in tow, but Sam and her husband, Vice President Nick Cappuano, cherish the chance to recharge and reconnect - especially with a scandal swirling around the administration.
No sooner are they back home than a fatal drive-by shooting sets the city on edge. The teenage victim is barely older than Sam and Nick's son, Scotty. As more deaths follow, Sam and her team play beat the clock to stop the ruthless killers. With Nick facing his greatest challenge - one that could drastically change all their lives and even end Sam's career - will the mounting pressure deepen or damage their bond?

Always a good read

This is a great addition to the series and as a stand alone book. I always pre order and have not been disappointed yet.

Non stop!


As usual, there's all kinds of excitement going on in Sam and Nick's personal and professional lives--400+ pages of high-drama, high-intensity excitement. It hardly feels like it's that long, though, because with all that's going on--along with some very sweet and sexy times between Sam and Nick, and some touching ones with Scotty and their extended friend and family groups--it's near impossible to put this book down until you're done. Nick's literally unable to relax into his job as VPOTUS (not that it's relaxing at the best of times, but there's a few extra layers of stress in Nick's case), the bodies that Sam has to deal with are literally starting to pile up, and that's just the beginning...

Though you could probably read this as a standalone, readers who've read the other books in the series will have a better sense of shared history and the book will have more impact if you've read the rest of the series--past events, especially those in the book immediately prior (Fatal Threat), effect things that happen here. If it's been a while (or like me, you've somehow missed the last one) you do find out the basics of what you need to going forward, but there's a good chance that just finding out the minimum will make you all that more anxious to read the previous book(s) yourself and witness it all first hand.

But at least it will give me something to do while I wait for #13! ;)
