Overview

Caught in the crossfire . . .

While investigating a multimillion-dollar armed robbery, and several apparently unconnected murders, the mismatched FBI team of sharp-tongued feminist Ashley Sutton, and her boss, chauvinistic and proud Eli Tanner, unintentionally walks into the kill zone of a deadly conflict between two formidable opponents.

Sometime earlier, drug kingpin Carlos Mendez had ambushed and killed almost an entire Navy SEAL platoon off the coast of Honduras. Now a  squad of former U.S. special-operations soldiers wants him to pay for his sins—in money and blood. But Mendez has political pull, a private army, a deadly arsenal, and a fortress compound in Miami. And he knows something neither the FBI nor the former spec-ops troopers do. . . .

The odds don't look good for either group of good guys.

From the backwoods of Georgia to the opulent crime palaces of Miami, DUTY BOUND propels Special Agents Sutton and Tanner on a wild, edge-of-the-seat ride through hot lead and cold blood.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Special Agents Eli Tanner and Ashley Sutton are at it again in Scott's latest action thriller (Solemn Duty; Forged in Honor). To settle an old score, ex-Navy SEAL Ted Faircloud recruits two men to help him kill Cuban drug lord Carlos Mendez, but Tanner and Sutton are also hot on Mendez's trailand in far more danger than they realize. Scott deftly weaves the story together with his usual mix of techno-military jargon and unabashed romance, and while the dialogue often lapses into stereotype (" `I'm a bad SF sergeant with years of experience snoopin' and poopin' "), the end result is a compulsively readable tale well worth the necessary suspension of disbelief.
