Savannah von Hopf has no choice. To save her uncle's life, she goes in search of Ken "WildCard" Karmody, a guy she barely knew in college who is now a military operative. She must convince him to help her deliver a cache of ransom money into the hands of terrorists halfway around the world. What she doesn't expect is to end up in WildCard's arms before she can even ask for his help. As her plan goes horribly wrong, they become trapped in the forsaken jungle of a hostile country, stalked by a lethal enemy. As time is running out, they scramble to escape, risking their lives to stop a nightmare from spinning even further out of control.

Another gripping installment in the Troubleshooters series: I couldn't put this book down. I had a few moments of annoyance with Savannah, but she ultimately won me over. I love WildCard/Ken, even when he IS being a prick. Likewise with Jones/Grady, and I was cheering Molly on the whole time. My heart is aching for Sam, Alyssa, and Max, but their sections are written beautifully. I really appreciate that Brockmann doesn't force pat solutions on her characters, nor do the troubles they face seem excessive (even when I don't like them). And Rose! Another awesome WWII heroine and adventure. Brockmann is one of my favorite authors of all time, and the TS series just keeps getting better and better. I've gotten to the point where I put in hold requests for the next two of the series at a time, so I can have minimal lapse time. I'll be screwed when I get to the short stories that haven't been added to the BPL Overdrive collection yet...
