Having time on her hands while waiting for her date to pick her up at Fort Bliss in El Paso, Air Force Future Systems Test Cadre 3 chief Second Lieutenant Samantha Spade runs a test on a new type of goggles. To the shock of the "Techno diva", the goggles work perfectly. However even more stunning she sees a man in a ski mask holding a gun while stalking some prey. Sam manages to warn bystanders and especially the apparent victim Sergeant Diane Roth, who runs over the sniper with her SUV. To both women's amazement, the dead culprit is a soldier suffering from PTSD; who served with his chosen victim in Afghanistan. As investigators and the media look into the case and things about Diane surface, Sam fears somehow she made All the Wrong Moves. The latest Samantha Spade military mystery is an enjoyable investigative tale in which the experimental gizmos and the Air Force bureaucracy enhance the prime plot, Sam's unofficial inquiry. Fast-paced throughout, readers will enjoy this fine thriller as revelations re media heroine Diane keep popping up, which has Sam digging deeper into why the assassination attempt. Harriet Klausner

Air Force Lt. Samantha Spade is conducting an unauthorized test of a new remote sensor when she witnesses a sniper attack in progress. From there, events spiral out of control. This is billed as a mystery, but it's more of a suspense novel. The writing is a bit choppy, and the foreshadowing is rather heavy-handed, but the story is pretty good and Sam is an engaging heroine.

Lieutenant Samantha Spade and her Air Force team are getting ready to test out goggles that allow wearers to see around objects. Before they get to their testing ground in the west Texas desert, she gives the goggles one unauthorized test of her own. While doing so, Samantha spots a ski-masked man with a rifle. He appears to be ready to shoot a woman, a sergeant in the Army and Gulf War veteran, approaching in her personal vehicle. With some quick thinking from both the would-be-victim and Lt. Slade, the perpetrator is thwarted -- dead. Thus starts a case that turn out to be quite complex, involving both civilian and military law-enforcement types. Samantha is good at skirting rules and regulations -- and she loves a good mystery! She has helping her her hunky beau, a Border Patrol agent. Now You See Her was a fun read, with a complex plot and more than a hint of romance (of which I'm not a big fan). This will not be on my list of all-timefavorite, but the book provided some diverting entertainment. Review based on publisher-provided copy of the book.04/30/2010

Lt. Samantha does it again! Stubborn and sarcastic! Ft. Bliss, the Franklin Mountains and the Chihuahuan desert animals are showcase wonderfully. VIVA THE SOUTHWEST! Come and visit!
