Secret Service Agent Dain Ryder is loyal to the president at a precarious time when not all the men sworn to protect POTUS are trustworthy. Dain’s family were missionaries in China where his grandfather was murdered and his father blinded. Thus, he has long lived with bigotry and hatred in his heart toward the Chinese people. So, he’s thrown a curve ball when President Robert Bradley gives him a special assignment to work with a beautiful Chinese spy to find out who is behind the plot to bring down his administration.
Lian Chen is not only gorgeous, she’s a biochemist, a superb classical Chinese dancer, martial arts expert, a crack shot, and proficient with explosives. Dain begins to doubt her loyalty to America and to the president. She could be on the wrong side. She’s hiding something big. As he fights his attraction to her, he fears she may have a secret relationship with Robert Bradley?
This story goes from the Oval Office, to the halls of George Washington University, to the streets of D.C.’s Chinatown and back again. It’s quite a thrilling journey.
The story is the plotted takeover of the U.S. by a foreign power through infiltration of positions of power. The reader gradually learns the motives of the antagonist as the story progresses. The main characters are Lian Cheng, professor and dancer who survived Mao’s China and “Ryder” a former special operations soldier who served under the general who had become the POTUS. Characters are complex and well developed --memorable. You root for the good guys and detest the bad guys--who are really bad!
Beautifully crafted and almost technically flawless. Well timed and well paced and filled with the unexpected and a dash of romance. I would highly recommend this book, especially to those who like to keep abreast of current events.
Oh, so “current-evently,” people are trying to destroy the United States as it has been. Bombs, hatred and fighting among the ethnic groups. But who? As the President struggles to find who is behind this mass plot of destruction, can he trust anyone? Will the ones he chooses to find and take down the manipulative mastermind, be true to the cause?
Masterfully written, this novel echoes the events of today's world. Colwell has created a story that will hold the attention of readers who enjoy thrillers and suspense. I highly recommend this book.
