Author Terry Odell isn’t new to the thriller/adventure genre, this being her sixth outing in the excellent Blackthorne series. Not only is the novel exceedingly well-plotted, it is carefully constructed so that readers new to the series will have a completely enjoyable experience.

The Blackstone agency is a dark, highly specialized security and spy agency that operates for the good of its clients with a high degree of ethical conduct. Two of its clandestine operatives are engaged in this enterprise, penetration of a mysterious posh resort in the mountains. Olivia Fairbanks works part-time for Blackstone and because of her intellectual attributes and undeniable beauty is tasked for a unique under-cover operation. Her partner is a recovering medic and real he-man macho type, Glenn McCade. He’s a veteran of many dangerous Blackthorne contracts and he’s sure this lovely, desirable but inexperienced woman will not help him carry out the assignment.

That’s the setup. Needless to say sparks between the agents as well as the pressures of their assignment lead to all kinds of adventure and complications. The novel is very-well written, the principal characters are authentic, from their physical limitations to their emotional and intellectual collaborations and the plot moves smartly ahead to its logical and satisfactory conclusion. This is a well-done crime novel of high order and I do recommend it.

  1. Great review, although the cover made me wonder about the contents. This book boasts some neat elements.

  2. Upon first glance, I would have assumed this to be a romance, or romantic suspense. Good to know it’s a thriller with authentic characters. 🙂
