As the intelligence specialist for A-Tac, a black-ops CIA unit masquerading as Ivy League faculty, Hannah Marshall is used to working behind the scenes. But when a brutal murder hits too close to home, Hannah finds herself in the middle of the action, falling in love while racing to outwit a sadistic mastermind.
A KILLER CLOSES IN
After the death of her A-Tac partner, Hannah doubts everything she thought she knew about love and loyalty. When handsome Harrison Blake joins the team, she’s reluctant to trust him—or to act on her intense attraction to him. Then Hannah receives a podcast of a gruesome murder, and the only person who can help her find the killer is Harrison.
Harrison has spent years trying to hunt down the cunning monster who killed his sister. Now investigating with Hannah, he faces a shocking possibility—his sister’s murderer has resurfaced. As the danger escalates, Hannah and Harrison grow closer, and the desire simmering between them ignites. After Hannah disappears, Harrison has only one chance to save the woman he loves.
Book 5 in the A-Tac series Deadly Dance
A-Tac are CIA operatives that all work undercover at Sunderland College.
This was Hannah Marshall (who was Jason's partner who was killed in a previous book) and Harrison Blake (who was previously with the FBI serial killer unit and in an earlier series)
It's an other explosive start of an A-Tac book. The team is following up on a lead on an antiques dealer with ties to the Consortium (an arms cartel they have been trying to bring down throughout the series). What they didn’t realize is that it was a trap and the building is blown up with Hannah barely making it out alive.
As this is happening a student on campus is taken. After Hannah's TA shows her a video she received on her phone of a girl tied to a bed and being tortured the team realize the two are connected. After finding the girl dead and the way she is positioned in her death Harrison realizes the similarities to a serial killer he was tracking years ago called the Cyber Killer that also had killed his twin sister.
He brings in some of his old team from his FBI days to try and figure out who the killer is and stop him before he takes another girl. As the danger escalates and more girls are taken , Hannah and Harrison grow closer, and they give into the desire simmering between them. And when Hannah disappears, Harrison has to make sure that Hannah fate doesn’t end up like his sisters.
Another great suspense read from Ms Davis that has a bit of a twist at the end. I look forward to reading Simon's books next.
A-TAC SERIES/Dee Davis
Book 2 in the Silent Warrior series Tactical Deception
You need to read the first book Collateral Damage before reading this one
(Book description) The fallout from the team’s failed mission to Lebanon is still chewing Lt. Col. Roger Weston’s butt. God help them all if the media get wind of the real story. Worse, guilt is eating him alive over a decision that left a fallen warrior’s wife without a husband…and exposed to danger from her radical family.
No matter what, Mari Dalton’s safety and wellbeing—and that of her unborn child—come first.
Mari is certain God is punishing her. She loved the man who rescued her from a windowless cell in Afghanistan, and never betrayed their marriage. But she has never been able to forget her body’s reaction to Roger. The pounding heart, the burning senses, sinful thoughts run wild.
Now she is the target of terrorists bent on destroying the heart of America. As Roger lays his life on the line to protect her, they uncover a plot already in motion to assassinate the President. As the world teeters on the edge of chaos, any hope for a future rests in Roger’s already bloodstained hands…and the quietly faithful woman who holds his heart.
This was another insanely high intense book. You are on the edge of your seat for the whole book. This continues the story of Roger and Mari, Rico and Angie and Jack and Lauren. The bad guys are home grown terrorist and international terrorist both killing many people here on American soil.
I loved Roger (an American Lt Col) and Mari (who is from Afghanistan) in the first book and couldn’t wait to see how the author was going to tell their story and she didn’t disappoint. Her father who sentenced her to death plays a big role in this book.
Rico and Angie who were both kidnapped along with Lauren's children in the first book also get plenty of face time in this book. Rico is still not healed physically from his ordeal in Lebanon, the mission that has affected all the men involved deeply. There story does not end with a HEA so I am hoping the next book is about them.
We also go to see the start of what I hope is a future romance between Col Dekker and Airman Holly Gear. We learned more about Beck who is of Native American decent and seems to have an interesting past that the author still just gave us little glimpses of.
Some treads were wrapped up in this book from the first one but many more were started and of course home grown terrorist Frank Dugar is still out there somewhere. I am looking forward to the next installment in this series.
