Ace helicopter pilot Lt. Teri Howe is used to working in a mans world, but run-ins with sexually harassing officers are making her life miserable. When senior chief Stan Wolchonok of the elite SEAL Team 16 witnesses an episode, he quickly proves to be a valuable friend.

To get Teri away from her current problems, Stan gets her assigned to a plum training mission; unfortunately, the mission is scrapped when a real-life emergency develops. A plane has been hijacked and on board is a U.S. Senators daughter whom everyone fears will be used as leverage. What no one initially realizes is that the senators daughter Karen missed the plane, and when the hijackers refuse to accept this, one brave young woman steps forward and claims to be Karen.

Continuing the always-engrossing saga of SEAL Team 16, remarkable author Suzanne Brockmann allows Senior Chief Stan to have his story told. (Sep., 416 pp., $6.99)
