Author(s): 

Adair is back and pulls out all the stops with this one. Her combination of action-adventure and magic kick these books into the must-read category. These oil-and-water protagonists are a sizzling pair, and the heroine's offbeat sense of humor helps keep her balanced. Brava!

P.R. expert Kess Goodall has taken a job working for the current president of the West African country of Mallaruza, where a deadly virus and escalating border skirmishes are taking a heavy toll. Wizard and T-FLAC agent Simon Blackthorne is in Mallaruza visiting his old friend, the country's president. If there is magic involved in any of these crises, Simon will be able to detect it. Kess is the opposite of what Simon finds attractive, so why is he so drawn to this vivid woman? Their reluctant partnership becomes vital when they discover a massacre of aid workers. Kess has no idea that magic exists, but her eyes are about to be opened. (BALLANTINE, Oct., 336 pp., $6.99)
