There are eight words Meg Moore has never been able to forget: the United States refuses to negotiate with terrorists. But what was merely a chilling warning when she worked as a translator in a European embassy now spells out a potential death sentence for her daughter and grandmother, who have been kidnapped by a lethal group called the Extremists. Meg has to act—and quickly. Going against everything she was taught, she will now do anything to meet their unspeakable demands; anything—even kill—to save her child.

When Navy SEAL lieutenant, junior grade, John Nilsson is summoned to Washington, DC, by the FBI to help negotiate a hostage situation, the last person he expects to see holding a foreign ambassador at gunpoint is Meg. He hasn’t seen her in years, but he’s never forgotten how it feels to hold her in his arms. John could lose his career if he helps her escape. She will lose her life if he doesn’t.

    " I liked this book more than I did the first novel in the series, and I connected more with the characters. But I think the reason I gave it five stars was Eve and Ralph. They deserved their own full-length novel! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brandycakes2 | 1/27/2014

    " This was the first in the series I read, and I fell in love with all the characters, could put any of them down. "

    " Found it a little long-winded, too much talking, not enough doing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marta | 1/11/2014

    " Loved these characters as always but I'm wondering why I haven't seen John & Meg in some of the later books. Maybe they were mentioned and I didn't notice. I hope to see them more, along with Eve and Amy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kaetrin | 1/9/2014

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beth | 12/1/2013

    " I loved how there were about four seperate stories of the characters going at once, but it was written so smoothly that it didn't get confusing at all. Loved this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynne | 11/30/2013

    " This was another amazing story in the Troubleshooters series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stacy | 9/3/2013

    " I really liked Eve's story and the Sam and Alyssa storyline. However, I couldn't stand Meg's character and I didn't see why John put up with her. Otherwise, it would have been a 4-star book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sheila | 8/24/2013

    " What an excellent book, I was on the edge of my seat the entire time, I am so glad there are 17 books in this series and another series afterward, I don't think I'll ever get enough of this author! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sherri | 11/1/2012

    " More like a 3.5 star review. The heroine was a bit annoying for me and I just couldn't get past that. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shae | 2/1/2012

    " Really good, but holy cripe did it seem like it went on forever. I was more interested in the Eve/Ralph story and the Alyssa/Sam story than Meg and Nils. Meg was another one of those characters that you just want to shake some sense into. Just trust the experts lady! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather Tisdale | 9/7/2011

    " I do like it, but I don't like that so far both books have flashbacks. It's not that they're bad, but I'm fearing the overuse of them as the series goes on. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Georgia C. | 9/5/2011

    " hooked on the series. they're a little above average in my opinion for the whole special ops kinda thing. romance and a plot! always a good thing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Annemarie Tull | 8/15/2011

    " Pithy romance reading about a group of Navy Seals -- occas good sex scene but not too trashy. Look on Amazon to get the order of her 14 books and read them in order -- all 14 are intertwined! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen | 5/16/2011

    " Good story line and I'm a sucker for recurring characters...will probably read more in the series! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 3/17/2011

    " I loved the Grandmother's story :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christy | 3/6/2011

    " The back story of Eve and Ralph during WWII is worth a book on it's own...loved it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenni | 1/23/2011

    " Meg got on my nerves. If you really want to help your daughter, why would you keep ditching professional help from a Navy SEAL? Seriously. The WWII flashbacks seem to be a trend for the Troubleshooters series, which is unfortunate. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michele | 1/7/2011

    " This book was terrific. She is a wonderful writer. I like how these big tough men are vulnerable and even cry. After the first book I wasn't into the series, could have quit there. But now I'm into it and want to read them all! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christi | 12/14/2010

    " 4 1/2 stars...a really, really good book. I cannot believe that I have to wait another 3 books before getting the rest of Sam and Alyssa's story?!? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris | 12/9/2010

    " It was better than The Unsung Hero but I'm not sure how I like the multiple storylines. It seemed like more time was spent on a secondary couple rather than Nils and Meg. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen | 12/3/2010

    " Loved this whole series. Great group of characters, surprising twists, many wonderful heroes and fun escapism. "

    " I don't think I could love this series more! "
