CIA Agent Selena Shaw Jones is still shaky from her recent successful hostage ¿negotiations¿ in Berzhaan that turned her into a heroine. Needing time to recuperate, she is granted none as her superiors want her to leave Virginia to return to the same hot spot that she feels fortunate to have left alive. This time they need her to extract a terrorist defector with critical information and an agent, her spouse Cole as someone inside the CIA has outed them.------------- Selena heads to the Middle East where she begins her quest to find her husband and his charge. She also must elude those who would enjoy a second chance at her. At the clock is ticking and the enemy is coming for her, Selena has little hope of getting herself and her beloved Cole safely home.--------------------- The further adventures of Athena Academy graduate Athena Force (see CHECKMATE) is a delightful action packed thriller that grips readers who trek with the heroine as she returns to the danger of the Middle east. The story line is fast-paced but it is courageous Selena who makes the plot work as the audience will believe this reluctant lioness warrior would enter hell, which she believes she has for the second time, to rescue her mate.----------- Harriet Klausner
