TERMS OF SURRENDER
When hostage negotiator Dace Recker is called in to assist a SWAT team in a bank robbery gone wrong, he ends up partnered with Jolie Conrad, the lover who left him 18 months ago without a word and no trail to follow. Both had vastly different responses to the tragic death of their son. Now involved in a tense hostage situation with life-threatening repercussions, Dace and Jolie find themselves in equally tense negotiations with each other as they realize their relationship is far from over. Terms of Surrender (4) has a wonderful combination of edgy, unpredictable action and complex, intriguing characters. Kylie Brant gets her Alpha Squad trilogy off to a terrific start.
