The elite SEAL Team 16 Troubleshooters squad is called upon once again to take down a group of terrorists who have hijacked a commercial airplane in this densely plotted romantic thriller. Amid the exhaustive drills and daily dramas of the mission, Brockmann (The Defiant Hero, etc.) weaves three romantic threads: a wistful WWII romance recalled by a Holocaust survivor; a turbulent relationship between SEAL Sam Starrett and FBI sharpshooter Alyssa Locke; and a burgeoning romance between the team's Senior Chief Stanley Wolchonok and helicopter pilot Teri Howe. When Teri asks Stan to help her keep a harassing officer at bay, his instincts are to comfort her and crush the officer. Instead, Stan arranges for her to accompany his team on a cushy training op that quickly turns into a real-life rescue mission. Teri doesn't mind being in the middle of the action, and she's eager to spend time with the fierce but compassionate senior chief. Meanwhile, Sam struggles to earn Alyssa's trust; the FBI's negotiator tries to keep his dealings with an American hostage from growing too personal; and the SEALs prepare to take out the terrorists. Taut suspense, sharp dialogue and splashes of humor help maintain the novel's swift pacing, and Brockmann's complex characters will capture the reader's sympathy. (Sept. 1)Forecast: Brockmann's last SEAL Team 16 installment left readers dangling, and her fans are no doubt eager to get their hands on her newest novel. Brisk early sales will give way to steady sales as word of Brockmann's sterling prose and expert plotting spreads.

Another winner for Ms. Brockmann. As with the previous stories in this series, there are multiple sub stories taking place simultaneously.

WWII story from Holland & Part of Stanley family.
As usual there are three love stories in this book and as usual one of them goes back to WWII.
I will give this book four stars although I thought that the part referring to WWII was just horrible. Firstly, the introduction of this romance was very badly done. The atmosphere created around Stan and Teri was torn down - as if an amateur had written this introduction! Secondly, this part wasn't interesting at all. It just kept interrupting the other strings of the story without leading somewhere. Of course Brockmann managed to save the story with its final developments but again, a feeling of annoyance stayed with me up until I reach the turn of this story.
The romance between Stan and Tory was nicely done, although parts of it were unrealistic. I can't really get into details without giving too much away but Stan trying to work therapeutically with Teri? Especially in the way he did? Her using part of her inheritance in the way she did (towards the end of the book) without having clear "signals" from Stan? Anyway, apart from these the romance wasn't too bad.
Hopefully I haven't yet read the last of Max and Gina. There's a lot of potential for a really intense love story.
The same goes for Alyssa and Sam. Perfectly done! This was a twist I didn't expect and I'm looking forward to finding out what's going to happen with those two.
The saga of the Navy Seal Team Sixteen of the Troubleshooters Series does not dissappoint. Somehow Suzanne weaves in the WWII history & incredible survival story in this one & it is a treasure. She is a brillant, creative interesting writer. Each one of her books stands on its own but starting at the begininng with "Unsung Hero" and moving forward gives you so much more to the whole picture you will not be dissappointed.
The main headline is the hijacked airliner filled with passengers & what the terroists think is the Senator Crawford's daughter but little do they know a very brave & courageus subsitute stands in & engages in radio transmissions with the famous negotiator Max. You literally feel like you are on that plane in the middle of the horrific action & Suzanne reveals the actual terror of being held hostage & the terror of being assaulted & more. Somehow Max & Gina find a connection that can't be cut & grows. The planning & rescue takes on an action of its own with the other Troubleshooters team & is outstanding.
The suspense and action keep you reading non stop. I mean NON STOP. You can't put it down.
Stan and Teri are an amazing couple. And for the first (and only) time in a SB novel, the heroine plays an essential part in the resolution of the suspense plot. Teri and Stan belong together like Scarlett and Rhett, Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth, Peas and Carrots, and Forrest and Jenny, and every aspect of their relationship makes me smile.
Sam and Alyssa....what more do I need to say about them? Has there ever been a more perfect example of opposites attracting? Alyssa is awesome, Sam is awesome (and hot) and sparks genuinely fly whenever they're within 10 feet of each other. Yowza!
Max and Gina. Ah....Max and Gina. *Sigh*
I love this book. But my love doesn't stop with these 6 characters. Nope, everybody is perfectly in character in this book, from WildCard (still nuts) to Tommy (still hot and balding) to Jules (hilariously fabulous) to Lopez to everybody in between. I've re-read OTE at least 100 times since 2002, and I never tire of it. Thanks for the memories, Suz!
