Being the director of a secret agency isn’t easy; we have almost no budget, all of our agents are stupid kids and extremists, and my boss is a corrupt senator, but it’s a decent job. Or it was, until a few months ago, when an important package disappeared and one of our agents went rogue, killing three men. Now she’s in Guantanamo, and I’ve got orders to deal with her. Personally.



Not what I was expecting. Again, a very short book, but it has been split into chapters which I like. According to Amazon, 82 pages print length.

We’re right where we left off in Beware the Hawk. This time in the government department that was responsible for the couriers. I’m a bit off-kilter because there’s not a whole lot of information about why, who, how, and where this all fits in and that’s part of the lure. Who really talks about secret government departments?

Even our courier, isn’t told much and she’s the one under the knife, gun, trouble of every kind. The Director is stuck with her has to bring her home every night.

Like the first book, there’s not much I can share that isn’t already in the synopsis. I took my time…and the time life’s hiccups tossed in…to read what should be a one day read. I wanted to make sure I grasped everything and I’m not sure I did, plus my copy says this is a trilogy, but I can’t find any information about a third book.

Ms. O’Connell, we…I want a third book. I need to know what happened after…dang, I can’t share. But…nope, that’s another can’t share.

Sorry, if you’ve read book 1 you need to follow-up with book 2, if for any reason just to find the answers to my unshared snips.

Short and not so sweet.
