Bruhns writes wonderfully complicated and engaging stories. The only caveat is that there are so many characters and parallel stories going on, you almost need a notebook to keep track
of them all. Despite the confusion, each character is well developed and engaging enough to motivate readers to push through and seek the resolution.

A foreign terror cell is plotting an attack and is experimenting with a deadly virus on U.S. soil. Trying to uncover the reason behind the mysterious deaths in her state, Louisiana police officer Tara Reeves hires a bayou guide to help her navigate through the swamp where the bodies are turning up. However, her guide is more than he appears; he's special ops.

Marc Lafayette is on a mission -- to divert Tara's attention from what's going on in the swamp. While he'd rather be hunting down the terrorists, Marc finds Tara's company a whole lot more intriguing than he anticipated. But as the sparks fly and passion heats up, the terrorists move into action. (BERKLEY SENSATION, Dec., 384 pp., $7.99)
