Overview


Accountability. Responsibility. When things go wrong, someone has to pay. In this case, that someone is Rennie Vogel.

Hung out to dry for the debacle of the Tajikistan mission, Rennie finds herself on the outside of the system with no hope of return. To make things worse, Hannah Marcus has moved on, seemingly willing to consign their interrupted relationship to the past.

Rennie has never heard of The Foundation, but they have heard of her. A former adversary unexpectedly offers her an opportunity to serve her country in a less-than-legal but honorable undertaking. With rare hope, Rennie tries to make contact with Hannah only to find her new mission is setting them on a collision course—and if they don’t find an elusive homegrown terrorist in time Rennie knows who’ll take the blame. If she lives that long.

In a powerhouse follow-up to her lauded debut Miles to Go, Amy Dawson Robertson delves deeper into the trials of a hero coping with the complicated landscape of guilt, responsibility and honor.

    Excellent thriller

    This is an excellent follow-up to Robertson’s first book Miles to Go. There is an atmosphere of tension through the whole book and a dark tone that seems to surround Rennie. The suspense follows a pattern of building; then there is a release before it builds the suspense again. Each time the peak goes higher than before leading to a crescendo in the final confrontation. The characters are complicated and very well drawn. Vogel is a study in the complexity of a person who is trying to reestablish herself after she thinks her life has been destroyed and Hannah clearly shows the torn emotions of a woman who is dedicated to her work, but wants to make room in her life for someone else. Supporting characters are just as complex, perhaps more so.

    One of the book’s strengths is that Robertson has the courage to let things happen that other authors fail to carry through with because they’re not very nice. She doesn’t mind taking a risk with her plot. Scapegoat is realistic in showing that, sometimes, the bad guy does win a confrontation. Added to that is enough about current situations to make the reader feel like she is reading an account of actual events instead of fiction.

    Amy Dawson Robertson has earned herself a position among the best action suspense writers today. Both of her books have delivered on everything that the category promises. She is quickly entering that group of authors whose books will be bought automatically because they are known for the quality they provide. The fact that she tells an excellent story is certainly part of that.
