A deadly attack. A stolen weapon capable of immense destruction. A painful secret that threatens to tear two hearts apart. CGIS Agent Noah Rowley is rocked to the core when several of his valued team members come under fire on his Coast Guard base. He and his remaining team race to the scene and end the attack, but not before innocent lives are lost. Furious and grief-stricken, he vows to do whatever is needed to bring the mastermind behind the attack to justice.
Stunned by the ambush, Coast Guard flight medic Brooke Kesler evacuates in a helicopter carrying the only surviving gunman. The gravely wounded man whispers mysterious information to Brooke that immediately paints a target on her back.
As Brooke and Noah race to uncover answers, emotions between them ignite. Noah struggles to protect Brooke at all costs and to conceal the secret that prevents him from becoming what he longs to be--the right man for her.
Everything is at stake as a horrifying truth emerges.
The attack wasn't the end game. It was only the beginning.
"This action-packed thriller is sure to please."--IRENE HANNON, bestselling and award-winning author
"I love Dani's writing, and The Deadly Shallows is one of her best! Tightly written and dripping with tension. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough."--CARRIE STUART PARKS, bestselling and award-winning author of Relative Silence
My thoughts: While I have enjoyed this whole series, I think that this book might be my favorite yet! The story is fast paced and I love how there is more going on with side characters, setting it up for the next book. I also loved that there is more than one mystery going on. This book kept me guessing! While this one is a stand alone, I recommend reading the series in order, since the previous characters are mentioned, as they are part of the same team.
I received this book from Bethany House. This is my honest review.
