I'm usually prefer mysteries to romance novels, but I'm a fan of Suzanne Brockmann's Troubleshooter series. I like her style, her characters, and the way that she ties multiple subplots together. I also like that the secondary romance doesn't always have a happy ending until a later book. I was disappointed in this book, though. I had recently reread all the previous books in the series so the weaknesses were even more apparent. I didn't care about the main two characters, Vingh and Harriet. In the earlier books I felt that I got to know the characters. I didn't get that with these two. You find out the details of how Harriet, Vingh, and Angelina met and a little bit about Harriet but not to the depth that existed in previous books. SB did a great job with Annie/Ric in Force of Nature so it's not because Harriet's new and Vingh was a minor character in earlier books. The Izzy/Eden story was "icky". The Max/Gina relationship shows that SB knows how to handle a large age difference romance. That develops over a period of a few years, and Max resists the attraction because she's so much younger than him. Also, Gina's always portrayed as mature for her age. Here, in their initial encounter, Izzy ends up having extremely intimate contact with his teammate's barely 18 year old sister after she kisses him even though he know it's wrong. Does he really have such poor impulse control? Also, Eden is described several times as looking younger than her age, and she's definitely immature. All in all, it just gave me the creeps. The Decker/Sophia saga finally resolves itself. I was OK with how it turned out, but I think SB let it drag on for too long. It began 6 books ago with little development in the meantime. There were also two minor things that I didn't like. I kept getting Dave and Decker confused because their names are so similar. Decker's usually referred to as Deck in this book. Maybe it says something about my reading style, but two 4 letter names beginning with D threw me. I also didn't like how flat Jules' dialog was. I know his role is minor but he is normally such a vibrant character. The first 2/3 of the book were really slow, and I would have given this book 1 1/2-2 stars if that was all I'd read. However, it did improve in the last part. Also, I missed this book when it first came out so I was able to read Dark of Night immediately afterwards. This left me with a slightly better impression of this book since DON begins right at the end of ITF and ties up some of the loose ends. All in all, you need to read this book if you're going to continue reading the series, but it's not that great.

Vinh Murphy lived the Marine value of never leaving behind a brother or sister in arms. He took that ethic with him when he left the military and joined Troubleshooters Incorporated as a top gun operative. However, on what was an alleged simple and safe mission, his beloved wife Angelina died in a crossfire. Filled with grief and guilt over her death, he simply vanishes, but holds culpable the neo-Nazi Freedom Network especially its leader Tim Ebersole everyone who knows him knows he deeply blames Ebersole.---------- When someone cleverly kills Ebersole, the FBI and even his associates at Troubleshooters assume Murphy is the prime suspect as he has a gut wrenching motive and his skills give him means and opportunities few could achieve to murder the highly protected Ebersole. Fearing a lethal shootout his Troubleshooter friends search for Murphy to persuade him to come in peacefully. Angelina¿s best friend former police officer Hannah Whitfield has always loved Vinh, but hid her deep regard from him and from Angelina when she was alive. He seeks her help as he is unsure whether he pulled the trigger or not as he was in an alcoholic stupor they seek the truth by going INTO THE FIRE of the Freedom Network.------------ Hannah and Vinh are an interesting pairing because both grieve the loss of Angelina and the guilt of one night of solace together after the woman died. In some ways Hannah is the more complete character as she was forced to retire due to an on the job injury leading to deafness and has hid her love for Vinh whereas Murphy remains grief stricken although the murder has awakened him from his drunken stupor. With other subplots also in the fire, fans will appreciate this action-packed romantic suspense thriller starring two walking wounded and the rest of the troubleshooters willingly going INTO THE FIRE to prove the innocence of one of them for once you join this team you remain part of them even after you leave.-------------- Harriet Klausner
