From the bestselling author of the classic espionage saga, The Brotherhood of the Rose, comes a high-action spy novel about deception and the meaning of loyalty. . . . When a bureaucratic mistake allows a terrorist attack to occur, CIA operative Steve Decker leaves the spy world in disgust. Seeking a new life, he moves to picturesque Santa Fe, New Mexico, and for the first time allows himself to think about something other than global intrigue and violence. He even lowers his guard sufficiently to commit himself to a relationship, but after his lover’s house explodes and she is seen escaping with an unknown man, Steve discovers that she has a mysterious past and that she knows he once worked for the CIA. Did she love him, or was she only using him as a bodyguard? Drawn back into the world of deceit and treachery, Steve will stop at nothing in his desperate cross-country quest to find his lover and learn the truth.

This fast paced story of an ex-CIA man beating the odds time and time again was an enjoyable read--and it didn't hurt that he found the love of his life along the way. Steve Decker is fed up with the CIA--especially when on an assignment in Rome he is paired with the most incompetent agent ever. Steve feels he needs to stop living like a spy and discover what life is really all about--but leaving the CIA is not so easy. Still he thinks he has left his former life behind him and found happiness--even love--in Santa Fe. That is until a band of armed men try to kill him and his new lover Beth. Steve's incredible skills then come back into use as he tries to figure out who in the hell is trying to kill him--or are they after Beth? The ups and downs of this thrill ride are satisfying, if utterly impossible to believe. If you want excitement with a tidbit of "guy will do anything for love" romance this is a great read.

My aunt sent this book to me while I was serving in Iraq during the beginning of Operation Iraqi Freedom. I usually read Danielle Steel. Since it was all I had I decided to just read the thing. It was a great book. Suspensful with plenty of action. I couldn't put it down. I would highly recommend this book to anyonme that enjoys fast action suspence fiction. Wow! I will read more books by David Morrell. :)
