I love a book that grabs your attention right from the start. This incredible high charged book starts with the discovery of a dead body on the outskirts of Intercontinental Airport in Houston, Texas. It is discovered by Stacey who is a veterinarian and volunteer Airport Ranger. I have to say I really liked finding out about the Airport Ranger program. It was described very well and is a much needed addition to airport security.
As Stacey is calling 911 for help what other things are by the man's body? Those two items are at the core of the story. Why was the man killed? Could this have been a foiled domestic terrorist threat? When Agent Alex LeBlanc arrives with his partner to ask Stacey questions, there is definitely a little animosity between the two . Alex is tough as nails and has a hard time trusting people . Stacey is upset that she is even considered a suspect. I loved the gradual attraction between these two. It was not rushed and there certainly were some bumpy roads between them. The mystery and threat surrounding what was found at the scene is exceptionally written. It had some twists in the story that was quite surprising.
I don't want to forget someone who was very important in this story. Whitt is a young boy who works with Stacey at her clinic. He is intelligent beyond his years, but has a very unsafe environment to live in. His parents are horrible and Stacey has grown to care for this young man. What will she do to get him out of his dangerous environment? The book is an edge of your seat non stop action story with characters who are out to harm others, trying to learn who to trust and a plot that could do harm to many. Stacey is at the center of this explosive story as it becomes evident that her life is in danger. Can Alex and the FBI stop the threat before it is to late? Will Whitt every be able to reconcile with his parents?
I loved the details of Houston and knew many areas the author talked about which helped me visualize the destination of the story. I was thrilled to read about Hooks Airport in Tomball, Tx. I know it's location well. I appreciate an author who can write about places that are familiar to some and really bring them to life. I loved the mystery that the FBI had to solve and I learned something about diseases that dogs can carry that could be harmful to humans. Overall it is a exceptional book with top notch action, surprises throughout the story and a lesson in faith and forgiveness. Each book the author writes gets more intense, better developed and keeps readers glued to the story. It is a hard book to put down once you start reading it. I suggest you get comfortable and dive into the latest book from a very gifted author.

I received a copy of this book from Tyndale Blogger Program for an honest review.
