Neither of the titles really "do it" for me, but still the story of Billy "Crash" Hawkins is one of my favorites so far. It just barely contains other members of Team Ten's Alpha Squad, since about a quarter of the novel is a flashback to last Christmas, when Crash was on leave dealing with the life-ending illness of his stand-in mother figure and slightly more than half of what's left he's on the run for his life, accused of a murder. Still, though, I really liked the story of Billy and Nell...maybe partly because it was able to focus so solely on them. I just sped through this title, and not just because I still have two more to go in my library book and only five more days to go in my lending period. ;-)

There are three main reasons to buy this book: 1) Suzanne Brockmann wrote it, so you know it's going to be good; 2) it IS a great story, and 3) both Ms. Brockmann and MIRA are very up-front about this book being a reissue of one of her previous releases.

Originally published in December 1998 as IT CAME UPON A MIDNIGHT CLEAR, the story has lost none of it's originality, sensuality, or action/adventure.

The story revolves around William "Crash" Hawken, a member of SEAL Team Twelve who gets framed for the murder of his Admiral boss and mentor, Jake Robinson. With his SEAL Team, superiors, and once friends convinced that he set the Admiral up for assassination, Crash has no one to turn to. Thankfully, someone comes to HIM.

Nell Burns spent a lot of time with Crash the previous year, at the home of Admiral Robinson and his live-in lover, Daisy Owens. The couple had been together for over twenty-years, and although they'd never had children of their own, they considered Crash to be their son. When Daisy is diagnosed with a deadly brain tumor, both Nell, her personal assistant, and Crash, her nephew, decided to make her last days as wonderful as possible.

That last year, Nell and Crash were lovers--for one night. But neither has ever forgotten the other, and now that Crash is literally fighting for his freedom, reputation, and very life, the two are on the run to find the real murderer of Admiral Robinson.

You won't go wrong with this book, or any other in Suzanne Brockmann's SEAL series.
