Returning to the covert world of the Sentinels organization, Dane delivers a hostage drama that, sadly, could be ripped from the headlines. The protagonists in this story have plenty of baggage and trust is in short supply. Although frightening in its intensity, the atrocities in this tale also spotlight the amazing power of the human spirit.

Jackson Kinkaid is a mercenary, but Sister Kate knows of his generosity to the orphans of Haiti. A reception to honor Kinkaid is attacked by ruthless terrorists who murder on tape and take multiple hostages. A wounded Kinkaid follows the terrorists, and to save Sister Kate and the kids, is forced to call on Garrett Wheeler and the Sentinels for help. Garrett sends Kinkaid’s former lover Alexa Marlowe and her team, but time and the elements are not on their side. (AVON, Sep., 384 pp., $7.99)
