Overview


New York Times bestselling author Lindsay McKenna brings us the exciting beginning of her Shadow Warriors series…

Placing women in ground combat is only a test for Congress, but for volunteer Corporal Cathy Fremont it's life…and probably death. In the exotic jungles of Thailand, she's trapped in a hotbed of deception and abuse because the enemy she can't escape is on her side of the battle line. One risk she doesn't need is an alliance with a marine, but trusting intense Captain Jim Boland might be her only chance of survival.

Caught in the crosshairs of danger and political intrigue, Jim must sacrifice his hidden agenda to protect the woman who reawakens the passion inside him. But deadly corruption is closer than they think, and may destroy them both.

    You'll need to get past the first 50 pages

    The fist 50 pages are heavy on defining military training tactics. It starts out dry but if you hang in there the story gets riveting and well worth the ready.

    Another HUGE winner for Lindsay McKenna! DANGER CLOSE was origin

    Another HUGE winner for Lindsay McKenna! DANGER CLOSE was originally released in 1999 as an ebook titled Valkyrie. It was an incredible ground breaking, award winning e-book of the year in 2000! The novel’s concept of a hypothetical 1 year trial of women serving in military combat positions, the WLF (Women’s Liberation Forces), remained highly relevant. You can now see reality in 2013 with Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta opening the doors for women to fill military combat positions. This author must have been psychic!
    In this story, the WLF is headed by Major Louise Lane whose vicious drive to get ahead caused Corporal Cathy Fremont, USMC, to become her scapegoat. Colonel Mackey who commanded a brigade of Marines fighting nearby also used Cathy while attempting to further his own career. For good measure you can throw unsavory politicians and shady doctors into the mix. DANGER CLOSE reveals the many sides of what can happen with women in combat, their trials, challenges, the politics and the power plays that surround such a monumental event. You have to admire and respect those who are willing to enter this arena.
    Cathy has a background as an orphan. She became a prime candidate for entering the WLF trial program as she desperately craved a sense of belonging. Over many years she faced extreme hardships but amazingly never lost her enormous caring heart. This was the quality Captain Jim Boland, USMC and company XO was drawn to. He readily saw that Cathy retained her compassion and concern for her fellow female comrades to the extent that she’d risk the wrath of her superiors while continuing to do what she felt was best to keep everyone safe and alive.
    I absolutely relished Cathy’s shooting competition with a spiteful Army Ranger. Her actions spoke well for her as she won impressively, thus earning an apology and respect for herself and Boland’s male recon platoon that she was temporarily embedded within. I couldn’t help but vigorously root for her and cheered loudly upon her victory!!!
    Trust has been a BIG issue for Corporal Fremont. It has been abused and tested many times over. There were times s when she was definitely beaten down but never out due to her amazing inner strength. Near the end of a vicious interrogation, her most compelling statement was that she was neither For or Against women in combat roles as war never determines who’s right or wrong – only who’s left to remember it!
    There were many gut wrenching plot twists and turns to keep your interest. I had to continue reading to find out what happened next. The love that grew between Cathy and Jim was sorely tested, but finally triumphed and brought them both safely over the finish line! He eventually came thru for her and they beat the odds together. Now I anxiously await the follow up book Down Range, HQN, in DEC ’13.

    Worth reading

    This book started out really good, but somewhere along the line I lost interest in Cathy.
    If the women in this book were meant to inspire us to join the military, the plan was a dismal failure. All in all, it was a good story. This book had tons of deceit and treachery, and mixed in between all that was the love interest.

    Ok, the last third of the book more than made up for what was lacking in the previous third. I certainly agree that if a woman chooses to go into the military, it’s her right to be on the front lines. She’s been dying for our country since forever, now is the time to acknowledge that fact.

    Military

    The book is okay. I just found it too predictable. Another love story with a war as the setting.

    Wonderful read....

    Very engaging characters, plot and story line! Its a very detailed read, so for military novices, like myself, its easy to follow and understand. This is a very emotional book, I teared up during a few scenes, but it has the truth and turmoil of war, its repercussions and the poor decisions people make to get to the top.

    Cathy and Jim's love story is an added bonus plus all of the other characters! They are a matched pair that go way beyond the call of duty to love and protect each other! I can't wait to read book two...

    Realistic account of war, love, deceit

    Will hold your attention. The horrible conditions of war and how some cope; how some are energized. I did not review the author before reading and I did feel this story was told from the female point of view. That was not a distraction; just the analysis of the written prose.
