Once again Robin Burcell has written a thriller that is eerily timely, in light of the recent bombing at the site of the Boston Marathon. Almost prescient as it now seems, with a plot dealing with a man of foreign background entering the US intent on causing panic, terror and destruction by placing a bomb in a very public place. The author brings back her protagonists from previous books in the series, Sydney Fitzpatrick, female FBI Special Agent and forensic artist, James “Tex” Dalton and Zachary Griffin, covert government operatives, and once again a host of law enforcement agencies, American and otherwise, running the alphabet gamut including FBI, CIA, and the possibly fictional ATLAS (Alliance for Threat Level Assessment and Security. Also featured are Special Agent Tony Carillo and his fraught relationship with his almost ex-wife, Sheila, whose current romantic entanglement is with a man who may not be what he seems, recently “arrested for allegedly embezzling money from his employer, a charity no less.” But that is just the tip of this particular iceberg. It was perhaps a poor choice on my part to read this novel so close on the heels of the preceding entry in the series, the terrific “The Dark Hour,” published shortly before this one, because I must admit that my attention wasn’t held with the same degree of tension as with that book, but once again as the ending grew near, the excitement rose to higher levels and I found myself white-knuckled as I raced to the conclusion, the author adroitly bringing this book to a terrific close, as is her specialty.
