Security specialist Cleo North is the best in the business. She's so good that she's able to finesse the assignment she wants out of her former colleagues at the Air Force without breaking a sweat. As a cover, Cleo's set to protect the star of a controversial movie at a film festival while she stays alert for signs of possible terrorist activity in the vicinity.

Hazardous duty on both counts, especially under the watchful eye of her former lover, agent Jack Donovan. On the sly, Cleo's delving into a decade-old murder case, which may involve a former Air Force officer who's connected to the event—and she could be putting her life in even greater peril.

The first in the peerless Lovelace's new series featuring wisecracking but warmhearted Cleo North is excellent, offering a heady combination of thrills, hot guys, Hollywood glamour and Tom Clancy–like attention to detail. Don't miss it! (Apr., 384 pp., $6.99)
