US Secret Service Special Agent Luke Powell is lucky to be alive. Three of his fellow agents have died in unusual circumstances in the past ten weeks. Luke is devastated by the loss of his friends and colleagues, and his inability to locate the killer feels like a personal failure. He's an expert at shielding others, but now the protectors are in need of protection.
FBI Special Agent Faith Malone is driven to succeed and confident in her ability to solve every case she's assigned. She's been put in charge of the investigation into the unprecedented attacks, and with Luke's life in danger, the stakes have never been higher. But it's hard to know how to fight back when you don't know who the enemy is.
As more agents are targeted, Luke and Faith will have to work together to bring a killer to justice and prevent any more names from joining their fallen brothers and sisters on the Secret Service Wall of Honor.
Unknown Threat kept me reading without a break to the totally satisfying end. Luke and Faith are complicated people with histories full of hurt and jagged walls between them. When they’re forced to work together to solve a deadly and tangled case, sparks are bound to fly.
Sparks, bombs, bullets…they all fly in this tight suspense. Each of the agents involved is recognizable, they are so well drawn. And did I mention the tension? Extremely high, and yet touches of humor sparkled in the darkest hours, allowing me to catch my breath.
The growing attraction between Faith and Luke amazed me with it tenderness in such dire circumstances, and I appreciated the spiritual growth in both.
I was given a copy of Unknow Threat courtesy of Graf Martin Communications Ltd. and Baker Publishing Group, and this story easily earns five stars. Highly recommended to anyone who enjoys romantic suspense.
