When she joined St. Kilda's, the elite security consulting firm, Emma Cross thought she'd left behind the blood, the guilt, and the Tribal Wars that defined her life at the CIA. Yet trading spying for investigating yacht thefts didn't alleviate the danger. Now, the same good instincts that got her into trouble at the agency might be the one thing that will help her survive her latest case.

St. Kilda and Emma are tracking a yacht named Blackbird. Emma knows the boat's intended cargo is lethal. What she needs to find out is whether it's biological, chemical, or fissionable. And she's only got seven days to uncover the truth . . . or a major American city will be lost. Fortunately, she's working with a new partner as menacing and distrustful as the worst enemy she's ever faced—Mackenzie Durand.

But Emma and Mac aren't the only eyes watching Blackbird. Taras Demidov, an expert in extortion and execution in the pay of oligarchs running the Former Soviet Union, is also waiting in the shadows, determined to intercept a fearsomely powerful arms dealer with the money, weaponry, and connections to alter the geopolitical balance.

Listener Opinions

    " Death echo is a nautical term, and this St. Kilda thriller takes place mostly on a yacht. Lowell is one of my favorite romantic suspense authors, but the romance part of this story didn't live up to my expectations. There were too many nautical terms for me, too. Great as my disappointment was, I rated it a four because the suspense is excellent. Men may respond better to this than romance lovers will. And, after all, mine is only one opinion. "

    " Unfortunately this book has a very predictable plot and predictable character interaction. Emma Cross has left the CIA to go to work for St Kilda's, a private security firm. Sent out on an assignment to recrut Mac Durand to help pilot a boat loaded with a nuclear bomb to safety, she lands Mac (in bed and out) and they successfully bring the boat in safely. "

    " Reminded me a lot of Amber Beach, one of Lowell's first adventure/romance novels and one of my all-time romance-genre favorites. Death Echo wasn't quite as good, but wasn't bad. The characters weren't as well developed, and trying to keep up with other St. Kilda employees stretched the plot a little thin. Lowell is a good author, though, and I'll be looking for her next book. "

    " Lowell tells a good story. I was kept guessing throughout, despite intricately woven threads of clues. My only disappointment was the abrupt ending, but I'm not sure how else she could have ended it and been more smooth. This is apparently #5 in a series, and the first of the series I've read. An easily read fast paced thriller/mystery. "
