Maverick FBI Agent Ana Grey is back in a suspense-charged new novel, going undercover into the volatile core of a terrorist cell. Emotionally vulnerable after a shooting incident, Ana has just returned to the job when she learns that a fellow agent has been murdered by a group of hard-core anarchists operating behind the facade of FAN (Free Animals Now). Dispatched to the FBI's infamous undercover school to learn the art of deceit, Ana takes on the identity of a down-on-her-luck animal lover determined to save the wild mustangs of the West. Now she's ready to work her way into the inner circle of Julius Emerson Phelps, the unstable, charismatic leader of a "family" of outcasts who live on an isolated farm in Oregon, and who are preparing an act of terrorism Phelps has dubbed "the Big One." The stakes increase significantly when Ana learns that Phelps is playing his own game of dangerous deception, and that he possesses a stockpile of dirty secrets about the Bureau sufficient to blow it sky-high. With razor-sharp realism, Smith renders the psychological vise of a deep-cover agent living a lie 24/7. Negotiating a minefield of loyalty and betrayal, under constant threat of discovery, Ana is forced to commit the very crime she's determined to stop. From the Compact Disc edition.

"FBI Special Agent Ana Grey goes undercover to investigate the murder of her former fiancŽ, Steve Crawford. The suspected killers are members of a domestic terrorist group known as FAN (Free Animals Now). After attending an intense training program, Ana infiltrates the Oregon-based group and encounters an assortment of highly motivated activists, each with a rationale for his or her violent actions. Among them, a turncoat FBI agent, Dan Stone, is in the process of planning "the big one." This is a well-conceived, in-depth look into disenfranchised, alienated people. April Smith is a savvy writer, but her narration isn't up to this fast-paced, engrossing story. This is another instance when listeners would have been better served by a professional voice-actor.
