The third book in Ross' High Risk series is a fine addition to her oeuvre dealing with veterans of our current conflicts. The story is compelling, and showing characters dealing with some of the issues men and women face when they return from war adds depth. Highly recommended.
Dr. Kirby Campbell and ace helo pilot Shane Garrett share a past. They had an affair in Iraq that Shane ended after his near-fatal crash, which cost him his leg.
Kirby is now a relief doctor in the Central American jungle, and Shane has pulled himself together too. He teaches flying and tests the newest prostheses. Still, neither has been able to forget their time together. When Kirby's partner is kidnapped, she insists on going to the rescue, and Shane is determined to go with her. Is the emotion beneath the adrenaline real? (SIGNET, Feb., 400 pp., $7.99)
