Shattered CIA agent Niema Burdock has just lost her husband on a mission when a mysterious agent named Tucker, helps her out of the Middle East before disappearing.

Five years later, Niema is still an agent, and has developed a virtually undetectable bugging device. Renowned agent John Medina needs the bug to stop a deadly threat: RDX-a, a new explosive that deteriorates over time, allowing it to act as its own detonator. RDX-a has already downed a plane and the CIA has just gotten a tip that it will be used again.

The likely middle man is Louis Ronsard. Through Rosard, John can find the source of RDX-a. John and Niema must bug Ronsards heavily guarded villa in the South of France. Niema is stunned to discover that the legendary John Medina is none other than Tucker, the mysterious man who once saved her life.

Linda Howard's eagerly awaited sexy new thriller is destined to be another explosive hit. ALL THE QUEENS MEN brings back secondary characters from her earlier work, Kill and Tell, and places them center stage. When it comes to mixing that perfect blend of romance and danger, Ms. Howard is unbeatable! (Sep., 332 pp., $23.95)

All the Queen's Men

Submitted by Robin in PA on November 16, 2013 - 12:13am.

Five years ago, CIA Agent John Medina and Communications Expert Niema Burdock were on a mission in Iran that went terribly wrong, resulting in the death of colleagues, including Niema's husband. Now they meet again when John needs Niema for another mission. This time he wants Niema to go undercover and bug the home of a french arms dealer. After vowing to never go into the field again, Niema realizes she is ready for some excitement. Getting back into the espionage game may be part of that excitement, but what really makes her heart start beating is working with John again.

This book has been sitting on my shelf a long time. I'm glad I finally decided to read it. John Medina was introduced in the book "Kill and Tell". But we really didn't know too much about him until this book. He is a guy who puts everything into his job, and believes there is no room in his life for a relationship. Look out when he changes his mind. He'll stop at nothing to win his lady. Niema is a smart, strong woman who lost the man she loved. I enjoyed seeing her come out of her shell once again when she was around John. I was also intrigued by the villain in this story. He is not the usual one dimensional character we see in so many books. My rating: 5 Stars.
