When elite members of the military are murdered on the streets of Washington, DC, FBI Special Agent Bailey Ryan and NCIS Special Agent Marco Agostini must work together to bring the perpetrator to justice. Unfortunately, all evidence points to a Navy SEAL sniper whom Bailey refuses to believe is guilty.
When Bailey and Marco start to connect the dots between the victims, including a link to a powerful defense contractor, they wonder if there’s a deeper cover-up at play. Then Bailey is targeted, and it becomes clear that someone is willing to kill to keep their dark secrets.
With the stakes getting higher by the moment in a twisted conspiracy, there’s a rush against the clock to determine whom they can really trust. As allies turn to enemies, the biggest secret yet to be uncovered could be the end of all of them.
Suspense is my favorite genre, and so I was really looking forward to reading this book. But somehow, because of how life can be, it got pushed back for a bit, and I didn’t get around to reading it as soon as I’d hoped. I finally had a chance to pick it up and read it this weekend, and then I was wondering why in the world I hadn’t read it sooner!
This story is based in the DC Metro area, and it was so neat to see the setting in this type of a story. Ms. Dylan has written another excellent suspense novel full of action and excitement!
There are lots of characters to keep track of, and I kind of felt like I was jumping into the middle of a series without having read the first book, but this is in fact the first book in a new series.
The main characters are Bailey and Marco. Bailey is an FBI Special Agent and Marco is with the NCIS. Because members of the elite teams are being killed, the departments must work together, combine their resources to determine who is behind all these terrible murders, and fast!
Twists, turns, and lots of excitement, this is a book that will have you turning pages as quickly as possible, trying to solve the mystery before the last page.
