BOOK REVIEW FOR OUT OF THE SHADOWS BY GERI FOSTER

 
     
Once again author Geri Foster has written an edge-of-the-seat page turner. OUT OF THE SHADOWS is a well-crafted read, beautifully written book with twists and turns to surprise and delight. Following her success with OUT OF THE DARK, Ms Foster introduces readers to Falcon Securities Agent Brody Hawke. 

The “cowboy” of the Falcon agents, Brody is more lone ranger or loose cannon than other Falcon agents. He is smart, strong, and usually successful even though he often uses unorthodox methods to achieve his goal.  Brody’s friend A. J. Roddio once saved his life.  A.J. is being held hostage in the Mexican fortress of major criminal Oscar Chavez. Brody is not willing to wait further on diplomatic negotiations—especially now that Mexican officials have denied A.J. is even in the country. Brody has a plan he knows will ruin his own career, but his friend A.J.'s life is more important.

CIA Agent Kate Stone’s career may already have been destroyed. Certainly her self-esteem has taken a major hit after she headed and attack in Iraq that failed. What happened is a mystery and left two men dead. She is working on a clue that might unravel the puzzle, but Brody interrupts her plans.

Brody’s strategy involves kidnapping Kate for a few hours to use as bait and lure Oscar Chavez from his fortress. Brody is certain he will need only a couple of hours at most to achieve A.J.’s release, return to the U.S., and release Kate back at her home. He realizes it’s a risk, but he is desperate to save A.J. from torture and death.

Grabbing Kate is not nearly as easy as Brody had anticipated. After finally capturing Kate, Brody and she fly to Mexico, courtesy of Jake Taylor, another Falcon agent who is also a pilot. Jake agreed to fly the plane because he knew otherwise Brody would try on his own. Better to aid and abet than have Brody and Kate crash.

Kate and Brody begin as adversaries, but soon join in the effort to extract A.J. from Chavez. Other forces are at work, and the duo soon find themselves involved in foiling an international plot to assassinate the President of the United States and the President of Mexico. 

I never give spoilers in my reviews, and hope I haven't revealed too much. I will leave the rest of this fascinating book for you to discover for yourself.  Both male and female readers are sure to enjoy the time spent reading this sexy romantic suspense filled with action and adventure. I rate OUT OF THE SHADOWS five out of five stars.

Good news for Ms. Foster’s fans—OUT OF THE NIGHT, her third book in the Falcon Security series, will be out later this month. It promises to be as great as OUT OF THE DARK and OUT OF THE SHADOWS. Here’s hoping this series runs for years and years!

This sounds like a great book. But I'm confused.. Which is the first book so I can get it? I am a linear writer and a linear reader. ;)

Paty, that would be OUT OF THE DARK. If you want a free download from Smashwords use the code HP58J
