IT'S CHRISTMAS EVE. BIOWARFARE EXPERT CAPTAIN MAGGIE HOLT IS AT THE MALL. AND SHE'S NOT SHOPPING.

Intel said the crowded mall was the target where twisted mastermind Thomas Kunz would release his lethal supervirus. To add more pressure, this was Maggie's first time leading a mission. Luckily, she'd teamed up with Dr. Justin Crowe, creator of the antivirus, to avert disaster. But when Kunz began releasing false reports and planting body doubles, Maggie no longer knew what or whom to trust--including Justin. The countdown had begun on her race to prevent catastrophe--and if Maggie made one false move, slay bells would ring.

Secret Assignment Security Specialist (SASS) Agent Maggie Holt hates working with men ever since her former spouse Jack cheated on her with her once best friend. Maggie does not trust males to protect her back as they always think with the wrong head and that adds unneeded danger during precarious situations.................. The SASS operative has no choice when the assignment forces her to team up with a male civilian, Dr. Justin Crowe of Crowe Pharmaceuticals as he is the scientific expert in preventing a deadly virus being released by Thomas Kuntz most likely at the Santa Bella Mall on Christmas Eve. Maggie knows from the dossier that Justin was caught cheating on his wife, who is now his ex. However as they work together she admits to herself Justin is not like her ex husband though he did wrong as he understands the seriousness of the mission must come before any personal feelings. As they work together to prevent the terrorists from succeeding, Maggie and Justin fall in love, but their priority remains stopping the lethal assault................ Once a reluctant Maggie finishes sassing her new teammate and goes to the mall hoping to be just in time to stop a tragedy, the tale goes into hyperspeed and never decelerates until the final altercation. Readers will need a seatbelt as this thriller stays at faster than light speed throughout the story line. Yet in spite of the action, fans will understand Maggie¿s aversion and Justin¿s ability to overwhelm her doubts though he did cheat on his ex-spouse. Vicki Hinze provides a delightful speeding rocket ride......... Harriet Klausner

Another fantastic entry from Vicki Hinze. I have no idea how much of this novel was research and how much of it was from experience, but I found it to be compelling and even kind of educational. Tight action, tons of suspense, and a truly smart thriller. Hinze seems to have tacked on the romance factor as more of, if not an afterthought, then a requirement in order to get published. But the relationship is interesting and the protagonists actually seem like adults with natural reactions to the many hurdles thrown in their way. But what really blew me away was the through and detailed counter-terrorism plot driving the story. A mall on Christmas even under biological attack? Could easily happen, and getting a peek behind what it would actually take to prevent something like that is an unlooked-for gift in a normally mindless genre. I've said it before and I'll say it again, I would love to read what Hinze is capable of doing outside of the formulaic constraints of the Silhouette line. If the Bombshell line is truly gone for good, I hope she finds a good home with a publisher smart enough to let her roam free and give as much space to her stories as she likes. Highly recommended.
