From unrelenting action to intense emotion, from high-stakes drama to breakneck pacing, New York Times bestselling author Suzanne Brockmann is a novelist who does it all. Flashpoint is an exciting thriller about men and women operating where agents of the US government cannot, where America's most ruthless enemies thrive-and where every step you take just might be your last. Jimmy Nash has already lived two lives-and he can't talk about either of them. Formerly an operative of a top secret government agency, he has found a new job with a shadowy company called Troubleshooters Inc. Created by a former Navy SEAL, Troubleshooters Inc. helps anyone in desperate need-which provides a perfect cover for its other, more perilous objective: covert special operations. Now Nash and a quickly assembled team of expert operators have come to the earthquake-ravaged country of Kazbekistan in the guise of relief workers. There amid the dust and death, in a land of bloodred sunsets and ancient blood feuds, they must track down a missing laptop computer that may hold secrets vital to national security. To get it done, Nash does what he does best: break every rule in the book and manipulate those who can help him get what he needs. But this time Nash may have met his match in Tess Bailey, a Troubleshooters operative with all the right instincts-and zero field experience. The chemistry between them is immediate-and potentially explosive. Now these two professionals must play out their dangerous games in the world's most dangerous place, cut off from their own government, cutting deals with people they can't trust, and guarding forbidden passions that threaten to compromise their crucial mission. A full-throttle adventure teamed with heated emotion, Flashpoint proves that Suzanne Brockmann can spin suspense unlike any other author working today.

"It's unclear why two narrators share the reading duties of this spy novel. But Melanie Ewbank and Patrick Lawlor carry the story well as they alternate chapters and provide adequate accents for the foreign characters encountered by special operations agents Tess Bailey and Jimmy Nash. The narrators supply appropriate emotional tones as the spies fall in love and capture the terror they experience while completing their mission. Both offer a gruff tough-guy characterization for the team's leader, Decker; in contrast, the author depicts him as a strong, yet gentle, type. Fans of the author may want to consider the print version. J.J.B. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine"
