Overview

“Gripping and adrenaline-charged.” – Publishers Weekly She risked everything inside the darkest recesses of his mind. “Absolutely riveting.” — Philadelphia Inquirer He survived a mysterious mission more horrible than the mind can imagine; only she can break through the trauma and get him to talk. But if she succeeds, they both may not survive. Dr. Sara West knows only that her high-security military patient goes by the name “Joe,” that he’s in a catatonic state and can only repeat the code words, “I wept,” and that his post-traumatic stress disorder is a result of his last mission as a Shadow Watcher—a spy who spies on other spies. Her brother-in-law was also a Shadow Watcher. He committed suicide in the same sinister military facility where Joe, and other military men like him, are now in treatment. Sara wants to learn what caused her sister’s unshakable husband to kill himself and, in the process, to heal Joe, a compelling man who wins her love. But the secrets inside him reveal a shocking truth. One she isn’t sure they can overcome. Vicki Hinze is the award-winning author of 30 novels, 4 nonfiction books and hundreds of articles, published in as many as sixty-three countries. She is recognized by Who’s Who in the World as an author and as an educator. For more information, please visit her website at vickihinze.com.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A lengthy stint as an Air Force wife has provided Hinze (Shades of Gray; Duplicity) with plenty of fuel for her edgy military-themed romances. Her latest romantic thriller centers around a civilian psychologist, Dr. Sara West, who has been coerced into military duty. Acting undercover as an Air Force major, Sara enters a maximum security facility in Mississippi to direct a short-term research project on five patients suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. All the patients are men, and all have been reduced to a catatonic state, each one repeatedly uttering the phrase "I wept." It's Sara's job to find out what has happened to them. She's drawn to one patient she calls Joe, a man who worked as a Shadow Watcher (a spy who spies on spies). As Sara helps Joe heal, she finds herself falling in love; through him she learns that "I wept" is an acronym for a place more horrible than the human mind can endure. Gripping and adrenaline-charged, Hinze's plot will appeal to fans who like their suspense razor sharp. (Dec.) Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.

    Twisty...Little Romance

    3.5 stars

    Acts of Honor is an enjoyable thriller-mystery. It is light on the romance and steam. The author leaves clues and possibilities, which may or may not lead to the correct answers. At times, the mystery is engaging and disappointing.

    My main concern was how the author would address Sara falling in love with a patient, which is unethical in the real world. Ms. Hinze does a very good job addressing this issue. Sara does indeed struggle with her feelings for ‘Joe’ in a realistic way. Her struggles with her inappropriate feelings are sincerely conveyed. The resolution for Joe and Sara is too simple. For all the build-up and angst I had expected something to match the long build-up. What followed between the hero and heroine will underwhelm romance fans and/or fans of steamy love scenes.

    This book is a thriller similar to Catherine Coulter’s FBI Thriller series. It has the typical twist and turns. Sara is unsure whom to trust as she is thrown into a situation without any preparation. If only the author would have withheld some details it would have allowed more tension to build, in my opinion. Overall, Acts of Honor is an entertaining read for those in the mood for some mystery and thrills.

    Fantastic mystery! Secret military hospital. Secret military lab with secret military experiments. Dr. Sara West wants answers and she will do just about anything to get them include put her life in danger. Who can she trust?
    A wonderful mystery. It got a little preachy at times but not too bad. Acts of Honor kept me guessing right to the very end. I will be recommending this one to my friends.
