More About This Book

Overview

When the Patuxent River prisoner-reintegration program--known as "Gateway"--falls under suspicion as a terrorist training ground, FBI Special Agent Jackson Maddox is sent in to investigate. Adopting the name Abdul, Jackson fits right in, until his cover is threatened by a sexy bombshell taking his picture.

An accomplished crime journalist, Lena Alexandra is on her own under-cover mission. Determined to send the man who raped and murdered her 15-year-old sister back to prison, Lena is interviewing Gateway's former-felons for a prison conversions book she's allegedly authoring. And not even the gorgeous ex-con named Abdul can derail her.

Until he gets in her way by acting as her guardian.

About to expose a home-grown terrorist plot reaching deep into the nation's capital, Jackson knows that he and Lena face a choice: figure out how to trust each other with their secrets and their lives. Or die in silence.

    Slow at first

    While more than half the book is rather slow (with lots of thinking and planning) the last part was so action packed, it was almost worth the wait.

    Uninteresting

    Boring. The bad guys weren't bad enough. The tough guys weren't tough enough. Twilight was a better romance.
