"Top-notch page turner! The perfect mix of suspense and romance." - Jill Barnett, New York Times bestselling author

And she thought facing a firing squad was bad...

When archaeologist Mara Garrett traveled to North Korea to retrieve the remains of GIs lost in combat, she never imagined she'd be arrested, convicted of spying, and sentenced to death. Her only hope is Curt Dominick, the powerful, ambitious, and infuriatingly sexy US attorney prosecuting her uncle, a former vice president of the United States.

What starts off as a rescue mission quickly morphs into a race across the Pacific. Someone is after Mara, and they'll risk everything to stop her from reaching Washington DC. With betrayal around every corner, Curt and Mara have little reason to trust each other and every reason to deny the sparks between them that blaze hotter than the Hawaiian sun. Still, desire clashes with loyalty when they discover a conspiracy that threatens not only their lives but the national security of the United States.

A great sexy read that will keep your gears in motion trying to keep up with this fast-paced intelligent plot. A fantastic combination of political suspense and deep intimate romance . This is truly the best of both worlds. A must read for anyone who loves both thrillers and romance. I want more books like this.

This is my first book by Rachel Grant but it won't be my last. Body of Evidence captured my attention and didn't let go until I'd finished reading the last word. I particularly liked how well the romance was integrated with the suspense. Quite a good read.

Rachel Grant has produce another great romantic suspense! Body of Evidence is fast paced and riveting and the subject matter is very interesting from mercenaries to retrieval of servicemen lost in combat. Strong characters and a story that never feels like a rehash of anything else I've read.

Mara Garrett is not just any JPAC lead archeologist – she’s the niece of a former US Vice President which means she is generally kept from known unstable environments, but when something happens to the lead archeologist going to North Korea she is substituted and sent in.  She is not aware that she was sent there by her ex-fiancé’s father intentionally to retrieve a piece of the crash site that would change the way the US interacts with Korea and maybe even set-off WWIII.  Can Mara’s escort, the one and only Curt Dominick keep her safe? Will they reach DC before those chasing them eliminate them? Can they keep the fire between them dim before it causes them to implode? These questions and more are answered within the pages of this gripping novel. Gripping. Suspenseful. On the Edge of Your Seat.  Just some of the ways I would describe this book, from the moment I opened this wonderful piece of literature I knew it was different – like nothing I’ve read before. Being my first try at an espionage style book I was not entirely sure what I was in for, but I was pleasantly surprised.  So much so I sacrificed sleep to finish this book, I just had to know what was going to happen next and see if Mara and Curt were going to be successful!  The reader will be able to relate to the give and take; push and pull of Mara and Curt’s interactions and the hesitation each of them feels – personally I found myself wanting to knock their heads together and scream “Get out of your own head and just relish the quiet moments you have together.” I so wanted to tell them to throw caution to the wind – but I understand why the author did what she did! Set aside a lot of time to read this book because you will want to know what happens and will keep this page-turner in hand! One that I highly recommended to readers of all genre’s!

Loved it!

Full of action and excitement. I appreciate that Mara was the aggressor with Curt and it was done tastefully, I have read very few books with the female in that position. It was refreshing. I also appreciated that Curt stuck to his word and didn't cross the line with her before he could. I did enjoy Concrete Evidence more than this one because it was easier for me to follow job wise, but I'll more than likely purchase the next book!

I love this series. Read the 1st in an anthology, also the 3rd in a different anthology. The women are strong and the guys are amazing. Looking forward to reading the rest in the series.

Overall, this was a pretty good book. It started off very strong with well defined characters, solid suspense and intrigue, and good pacing. Also, the author had obviously done a lot of research for her storyline: especially, about JPAC. The main problems started around the end of Chapter 36. The book had dragged in a couple places before Chapter 36, but it was still, mostly, on point. From the end of Chapter 36, though, it was not as well written. Compared to the 1st part of the book, the denouement felt haphazard and rushed: almost, like the author was unsure how to end it, so she just threw all the components in the pot and hoped for the best. Then, she used the Epilogue to tidy any loose ends. If she had cut some of the extraneous bits from earlier in the story, she could have shortened and tightened the story without loss of quality and then delivered a more focused and powerful ending.

I loved this book. Rachel Grant is a very good writer. She kept me reading well past bedtime. She had some surprising twisted that I loved.
