LAST MAN STANDING
Gerard brings her thrilling, pulse-pounding Black Ops series to an explosive end as operative Joe Green races off on an ill-fated solo mission to discover the truth about Bryan Tompkins’ death, which has been an open wound for BOI throughout the series. Time after time Gerard has proven that she is a true master of romantic suspense, able to perfectly thrills and passion!
Cryptic clues lead Joe Green to suspect there was more to the disastrous mission where Bryan died, and he becomes obsessed with finding the truth — so much so that he distances himself from Black Ops and breaks up with his lover, Bryan’s sister, Stephanie Tompkins. Stephanie is hurt and angry, but when Joe is arrested in Sierra Leone for the murder of a priest while Black Ops is deep undercover and out of touch, Stephanie realizes she is the only one who can reach Joe in time. However, even if Stephanie can break Joe out of jail, the real danger lies ahead, as someone wants to keep the truth about Bryan’s death deadly silent. (POCKET STAR, Feb., 384 pp., $7.99)
