Overview

Steve Spaneas doesn't have a clue. Who'd have thought that the woman who stumbles her way into his gym, looking and acting so very much like a street person off her meds, is really a CIA case officer whose memory has been obliterated by experimental drugs used by some very bad people? And seriously, who'd have thought that her attempts to untangle the few clues she's got would lead him right into her world of spies and counterspies, death and deception--and holy cow, stockpiled nuclear weapons? But Steve had better figure out who he trusts--his years of experience on the streets, or the heart of a gritty woman determined to reclaim herself--and he'd better figure it out fast. Because suddenly there's a body out behind the gym, surveillance teams lurking, and a series of unsavory goons following the trail of a woman temporarily named Mickey right through his life.

Once you pick up HIDDEN STEEL, you're not going to want to put it down. I was hooked on the first paragraph. Who is Mickey Finn? Why has she woken up handcuffed to a cot with no memory of what her real name is or how she got there? Why are so many people chasing her with guns? And the biggest question of all, Is Mickey one of the Good Guys--or one of the Bad Guys? HIDDEN STEEL is a page-turner voyage of discovery, with the fate of the free world in the balance. Well-drawn characters, numerous plot twists, and unexpected glints of humor are what I've come to anticipate in any of Doranna's novels, and this one definitely lived up to expectation!

Imagine waking up in a hospital in handcuffs. And you don't know who you are! That's Anna, the heroine in this very interesting and fast-paced book.

This is a story that captured me from the very beginning. I was wondering what would happen next with each page I turned. In some ways it reminded me of the movie “The Long Kiss Goodbye” with Geena Davis although it was definitely different. This story is one of a woman who has lost her memory and is in pursuit of it while being pursued by others. I loved that though she found a male to help her Mickey really was the stronger of the two in many ways. What is not to like about a kick-ass female capable of taking care of herself even though she is not quite sure who she is? I rooted for “Mickey” and Steve throughout the book and loved the depth of character both were given by the author.

This on-the-edge of your seat book is story telling at it's very best! A wonderful read that I couldn't put down. Suspense, bad guys, and a touch of romance. I would love to see this story made into a movie. Thank You Doranna Durgin- I will be reading more of your books!

As she awakens she suffers from amnesias even as she realizes she is handcuffed to what looks like a hospital bed when she overhears a man and woman discuss her they mention Mickey so she assumes that is her name, but soon realize they are talking about a Mickey Finn. She persuades the man, a doctor to let her go to the bathroom, but uses the handcuff the doctor opened to knock him out. ¿Mickey¿ escapes.---------------- Mickey makes it to a San Jose gym run by Steve Spaneas. Mickey shows skills with her hands and a knife that makes Steve wonder who she is especially when fancy cars patrol the mean streets. Mickey begins to regain her memory and worries about some young female named Naia, who she does not remember is a Stanford foreign student and daughter or President Sayid Mejjati of Ishaddani, who wonders what happened to her CIA contact. As she tries to recall who she and Naia are, the CIA seeks her out as does the doctor and the woman who abducted and juiced her with a drug that wiped out her memory while finding herself attracted to Steve a desire that makes her leave to keep him and his inner city gym rats safe.------------- HIDDEN STEEL is an engaging thriller that grips the audience from the moment the amnesiac wakes up as a prisoner and never slows down as she regains part of her memory. Mickey is terrific as instinctively she knows how to fight while Steve is divided about her he knows she brings danger to his gym, but wants her safe. Readers will enjoy this entertaining international espionage thriller as the attraction between the lead couple stays in the backdrop while Mickey struggles to survive and do whatever is right for Naia, whoever she is.----------- Harriet Klausner
