PAWN

Author(s): 
Genetically enhanced web-page designer Lynnette White moved to Phoenix to get away from her past as a thief, but when the government comes calling and demands that she either use her enhancements to search for a terrorist bomb in a shipping container or go to jail, she insists on working with her old lover, FBI agent Nick Barnes, a man she still has feelings for. Pawn (3), by Carla Cassidy, is an interesting story with well-written characters, but the plot lacks some development and, although the ending is meant to be a bit cliff-hangerish -- it's part of the Athena Academy series -- it feels slightly unfinished. The situation with the shipping containers is resolved quickly and without much detail at the end.
