Zara Hightower thinks she is a coward, something less than
her friends who are warriors but, in truth, this genius is
more than she even believes. Part of her duties is to play a
little COVERT GAME while stealing information from foreign
industries' computers. Captured and tortured during one
mission, where one of her torturers has plans for her, she
must escape. Even if she manages somehow to get out of this
situation, she must still face Dr. Whitney, as his
experiments and the virus are soon to be released.
Gino Mazza is a GhostWalker whose whole family was killed
for greed; now he is a highly trained, unstoppable force,
genetically mutated killing machine. He can't even
completely blame Whitney, because his foster father was the
one to begin his training, but he followed Joe Spagnola into
any battle as he is the brother he never had until the
tragedy. He is worried though when they have orders, via the
evil doctor to their commander, to rescue an industrial spy.
Gino volunteers. He knows she is one of them and a
GhostWalker will never leave one of theirs behind ...
especially when that one belongs to him.
COVERT GAMES is another exciting addition to author
Christine Feehan's GhostWalker
series. She is taking us back to the bayou where we meet up
again with some of my favorite people. The emotion is very
intense in this offering due to the torture Zara endures and
her fears of her torturer coming for her as he promised and
the thrill of having found her very own hero. At first, she
is a little on the needy side, totally understandable, and
once she healed her protective instincts come out especially
when she feels Nonny is in danger.
We get to know Nonny better with her talking about her
younger days with her husband and children and grandsons and
now the GhostWalkers who have come to belong to her and her
giving out good homegrown advice to all the "girls".
I love Ms. Feehan's books; her stories give me the action,
suspense, romance and everything I crave but ... there are
times when the depravity of her bad (though in the case
COVERT GAME the word "bad" is really too wimpy to fit) guys
go beyond my comfort level. I love Zara and Gino and how
they come together to be all the other needs but to have had
to have gone through the torture Zara endured almost had me
-- for the first time ever -- putting a book aside. I kept
going though and once I got beyond those pages, and into the
rescue, romance, family, and bayou I was once again
intrigued and caught up in the story. So be warned ... parts
of this book are not for the faint-hearted.
COVERT GAME will give you a taste of the bayou, action,
intrigue, some very steamy yet sweet romance, with a hint of
what these men and women are fighting against, all a reader
has come to expect in Christine Feehan's books.
Treason, torture and temptation haunt the GhostWalkers in
their most dangerous adventure yet, as Christine Feehan's
#1 New York Times bestselling series hits an
explosive new high.
Rescuing an industrial spy from the hands of a criminal
mastermind is a suicide mission for the GhostWalkers. And
there's no one more up to the task than Gino Mazza. He's the
perfect killing machine--a man driven by demons so dark and
destructive that his blighted soul has given up trying to
find solace. But his laser-sharp focus on his target has
transformed into something nearing desire.
A treasonous senator dangled top secret GhostWalker data in
front of a Chinese crime lord, and he bit. Zara Hightower,
one of the world's leading experts on artificial
intelligence, was sent in to psychically wipe the crime
lord's computer network. She succeeded, but at a huge cost.
Now she's the captive of a man who has descended into
paranoid madness. Torture and death await her...
But GhostWalkers never leave one of their own in enemy
territory. And it's up to Gino to save Zara, or kill her if
it turns out she's led them into a trap. Either way, heaven
or hell won't stop him...
