Overview

"Top-notch page turner! The perfect mix of suspense and romance." - Jill Barnett, New York Times bestselling author
And she thought facing a firing squad was bad...

When archaeologist Mara Garrett traveled to North Korea to retrieve the remains of GIs lost in combat, she never imagined she'd be arrested, convicted of spying, and sentenced to death. Her only hope is Curt Dominick, the powerful, ambitious, and infuriatingly sexy US attorney prosecuting her uncle, a former vice president of the United States.

What starts off as a rescue mission quickly morphs into a race across the Pacific. Someone is after Mara, and they'll risk everything to stop her from reaching Washington DC. With betrayal around every corner, Curt and Mara have little reason to trust each other and every reason to deny the sparks between them that blaze hotter than the Hawaiian sun. Still, desire clashes with loyalty when they discover a conspiracy that threatens not only their lives but the national security of the United States.

2013-11-05
An anthropologist gets caught up in an international incident and must later testify against her uncle while fighting off romantic urges toward the man who rescued her, but is also her uncle's lead prosecutor. The second in Grant's (Concrete Evidence, 2013, etc.) series is a fast-paced suspense novel with a budding romance. It starts in media res; the protagonist, Mara Garrett, who has dedicated her life to searching for the remains of lost American soldiers, faces a death sentence in a North Korean courtroom. At the last moment, U.S. Attorney Curt Dominick saves Garrett from the firing squad. Dominick is prosecuting her father-figure uncle, who's a former U.S. vice president, on charges related to war crimes. The following pages are overstuffed with plot twists and action--biological warfare, murder, car chases, political posturing and plenty of explosions. Grant, a four-time Golden Heart Award finalist and archaeologist, uses her experience in the field to describe the excavation scenes carried out by Garrett's Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command team. The politicking, courtroom questioning and military knowledge are also well-researched. The dialogue between Garrett and her love interest not only builds their relationship, but also gives their characters complexity. As Garrett and Dominick crisscross the country to piece together their mystery while dodging their deaths, a new, yet plausible, wrench gets thrown into the already taut storyline. Inevitably, the couple makes it to Washington, D.C., where the courtroom drama comes to a head and all loose ends are neatly tied. An exhilarating read that could easily be a blockbuster on the screen.

    This is my first book by Rachel Grant but it won't be my last. Body of Evidence captured my attention and didn't let go until I'd finished reading the last word. I particularly liked how well the romance was integrated with the suspense. Quite a good read.

    Another great romantic suspense!

    Rachel Grant has produce another great romantic suspense! Body of Evidence is fast paced and riveting and the subject matter is very interesting from mercenaries to retrieval of servicemen lost in combat. Strong characters and a story that never feels like a rehash of anything else I've read.

    Mara Garrett is not just any JPAC lead archeologist ¿ she¿s the

    Mara Garrett is not just any JPAC lead archeologist – she’s the niece of a former US Vice President which means she is generally kept from known unstable environments, but when something happens to the lead archeologist going to North Korea she is substituted and sent in.  She is not aware that she was sent there by her ex-fiancé’s father intentionally to retrieve a piece of the crash site that would change the way the US interacts with Korea and maybe even set-off WWIII.  Can Mara’s escort, the one and only Curt Dominick keep her safe? Will they reach DC before those chasing them eliminate them? Can they keep the fire between them dim before it causes them to implode? These questions and more are answered within the pages of this gripping novel.
    Gripping. Suspenseful. On the Edge of Your Seat.  Just some of the ways I would describe this book, from the moment I opened this wonderful piece of literature I knew it was different – like nothing I’ve read before. Being my first try at an espionage style book I was not entirely sure what I was in for, but I was pleasantly surprised.  So much so I sacrificed sleep to finish this book, I just had to know what was going to happen next and see if Mara and Curt were going to be successful!  The reader will be able to relate to the give and take; push and pull of Mara and Curt’s interactions and the hesitation each of them feels – personally I found myself wanting to knock their heads together and scream “Get out of your own head and just relish the quiet moments you have together.” I so wanted to tell them to throw caution to the wind – but I understand why the author did what she did!
    Set aside a lot of time to read this book because you will want to know what happens and will keep this page-turner in hand! One that I highly recommended to readers of all genre’s!
