This flat-out thriller features black ops agents who never got the chance to come in from the cold. Readers will be flipping the pages trying to see if they can survive torture and betrayal without losing the ability to care and trust.

Dante escaped from a secret prison after 18 months of captivity. All but one of his friends were killed when he was captured. He believes the female agent he loved betrayed them, and Dante's looking for payback.

Cat, who's on the run, is the mother of Dante's child, something she must hide if she's to save their baby. As Dante hunts Cat, he doesn't know about the baby or the frame-up Cat was forced into. Can these two reunite before the victim list includes their child? (ZEBRA, Feb., 352 pp., $6.99)
