I'll probably buy more of her books, but I won't rush out to buy more and I'll archive this one pretty quickly.

305 pages. I like this author...but found too much reading in this story and not enough talking. A lot of yada..yada.

This was an extremely enjoyable read. Would have been a lot better if the detailed sexual exploits were left out. Even so I highly recommend it.

Overall Rating: 4.65 // Action: 2.5 / Emotion: 4 / Romance: 3 / Sensuous: 2.5 / Suspense: 4.5 // Laughter: 4 / Teary: 2 . . . [paragraph] . . . Found *Endgame* by Dee Davis (first book in "The Last Chance Trilogy") to be a very entertaining, suspenseful read. Liked: {1} The Hero, Gabriel Roarke -- an ex-Delta Force, hunky, gorgeous, strong-willed, self-sufficient alpha male who struggled with his emotions of guilt, was strong enough to overcome a parent-less childhood, and displayed moments of vulnerability. It would take a very strong hero to partner such a strong heroine. {2} The Heroine, Madison Harper -- a phenomenal, extremely intelligent, intuitive, capable and attractive FBI profiler, who was constantly "reading" people. She earned her way in life and did not use her connections to a rich and powerful father and godfather to climb the professional ladder. {3} The inclusion of well-developed, interesting, complex supporting characters. {4} The addition of lesser-developed supporting characters that added depth and realism to story. {5} The romance of unwanted but undeniable attraction that sparked between Gabe and Madison. {6} The sensuality of sizzling, heated, passionate, slightly graphic love scenes. {7} The suspense, while not nail-bitingly intense, included lots of twists and turns as task force tried to discover motive and identity of killer, including plenty of intriguing rabbit-trails to throw shadows on the investigation. . . . [paragraph] . . . Wolf Bear Does books provides a more in-depth, detailed review of *Endgame*.

FBI Behavioral Science Unit Chief Walter Blythe informs subordinate profiler Madison Harper that she will co-head a special task force that the White House has sanctioned at the request of her godfather, business mogul Cullen Pulaski. At the same time that Madison objects because she has worked hard to prove herself without using family connections, CIA deep undercover operative Gabriel Roarke is yanked to be her co-leader though he was working on a case for two years in the Keys. He believes that his co-chief is rich man¿s candy; she figures he is the typical brainless macho over the top warrior.--- Cullen explains to the two unhappy draftees that he believes someone is killing the members of the elite American Business Consortium, but making it look like an accident or a natural death. Madison brings on an IT guru who pays dividends immediately when he finds a deadly pattern; Gabriel brings on two field operatives that he trusts. As they work together, the initial disdain and contempt turns into respect and admiration before becoming love as each willingly would risk their lives to save the other from a killer who seems one step or two ahead of them.--- This exciting police procedural romance is an intriguing tale more so because of Madison¿s abilities than that of Gabriel. The motive for the homicides comes up very late and seems off kilter, but the investigation is fun to follow especially as Madison and Gabriel begrudgingly initially realize how wrong first impressions can be as they soon depend, trust and love one another. Fans of suspense thrillers will want to read ENDGAME, a fine tale of love and murder.--- Harriet Klausner

Madison Harper is one of the FBI's top criminal profilers. She has just wrapped up one big case and two others pending, but her boss puts an end to those plans. Her other cases are being delegated elsewhere. Why? Cullen Pulaski is her godfather, her friend, and one of the richest and well known men in America. He is a big player in the American Business Consortium. The accord (consortium) was formed in the wake of 9/11. It is an attempt at communication and cooperation among leading industrial bigwigs internationally. Negotiations with the Chinese are almost complete. However, Cullen believes that someone is killing off the key players of the accord. Cullen went to the White House and got approval to make a task force to investigate his hypothesis. He chose Madison Harper to share command with Gabriel 'Gabe' Roarke (CIA) in gathering the people to make up the task force and head it. ......................................... Gabe did not like being pulling out of his undercover mission after three years of work on it. Yet when Cullen wants something he normally gets it. And this time, he got it. Gabe also did not like the fact that he had to share command with a 'profiler', and a woman at that. Without Madison's permission, he calls in a couple men to be in the force. Too bad if she did not like it. But he never expected to meet Madison and find out that she not only feels the same way about him, but she had also recruited a couple of people without his permission. Too bad if HE did not like it. ......................................... The two obviously get off to a bad start. Sparks fly for more than one reason. However, people are dying and the accord is in jeopardy. They must work together to figure out it out quickly, because the killer is hitting closer to home. ..................................... ***** This is the first of a trilogy. The next book will be 'Enigma', due for release in June 05. The last title will be 'Exposure', due for release in September 05. ......................................... The author, Dee Davis, shows her sneaky side in this novel. The killer has been killing for close to three years and tags six victims before anyone even THINKS that there may be a pattern. Just as I thought I knew who was doing what and why, the author throws in startling obstacles and I go stumbling along. Dee Davis is masterful in keeping her readers on the edge of their seats. Excellent! *****
