Charged with finding out who is trying to stop a dam project, Owen finds himself sidetracked with the head engineer's beautiful daughter.
Having lost her family, Laura seeks the father she has never known.
Those attacking the project plan to use her against her father.
It was supposed to be just an information gathering assignment to CIA agent Owen, but everything that can go wrong, did.
The suspense is building as the 'accidents' keeps happening at the construction site for the dam. After surviving, not once, but twice in one day, from a life and death situation, Owen finds out, his undercover boss Chris, has a daughter, and she is coming to visit the construction site. As soon as Laura arrives, the second kidnapping attempt is successful, and Owen has divided interest, as he should be finding out, who wants to take over the dam construction, who is behind the so called accidents, protect Chris, and find Laura.
Dangerous situation after another, builds the tension in the story. Owen's resources in the rainforest are endless, and intriguing. The exotic pictures painted by the authors are interesting. Laura soon finds the adventurous strike in herself, and becomes a valuable team player in the fight against the threat and terror.
The attraction between Owen and Laura is stimulated by the dangerous situation they find themselves in. The connection between Laura and Owen is clear, though instantaneous. So Owen's idea of taking things slow afterwards, was welcoming. The tale is very clean, the book has no love scenes, or bad language.
The authors bring their political views into the story, something I was a bit surprised about.
Other than that, I enjoyed the suspense and action. The twists in the story kept it flowing nicely, it was thrilling and intense, and kept my interest.
