From unrelenting action to intense emotion, from high-stakes drama to break-neck pacing, bestselling author Suzanne Brockmann is a novelist who does it all. Now Brockmann delivers an exciting thriller about men and women operating where agents of the U.S. government cannot, where America's most ruthless enemies thrive--and where every step you take just might be your last. . . .

Jimmy Nash has already lived two lives--and he can' t talk about either of them. Formerly an operative of a top secret government agency, he has found a new job with a shadowy company called Troubleshooters Inc. Created by a former Navy SEAL, Troubleshooters Inc. helps anyone in desperate need--which provides a perfect cover for its other, more perilous objective: covert special operations.

Now Nash and a quickly assembled team of expert operators have come to the earthquake-ravaged country of Kazbekistan in the guise of relief workers. There, amid the dust and death, in a land of blood red sunsets and ancient blood feuds, they must track down a missing laptop computer that may hold secrets vital to national security.

To get it done, Nash does what he does best: break every rule in the book and manipulate those who can help him get what he needs. But this time, Nash may have met his match in Tess Bailey, an Troubleshooters operative with all the right instincts--and zero field experience. The deep attraction between them is immediate . . . and potentially explosive, with risk at every turn. Now these two professionals must play out their dangerous games in the world's most dangerous place--cut off from their own government, cutting deals with people they can't trust, and guarding forbidden passions that threaten to compromise their crucial mission.

A full throttle adventure teamed with heated emotion, Flashpoint proves that Suzanne Brockmann can spin suspense unlike any other author working today.

Honestly, I had a hard time getting into this one for a while. It could be because there are so few characters from the other Troubleshooters books, so it was like starting fresh, even though there are dangling storylines from earlier in the series that could be addressed. I do like the characters, and the plot is interesting. It really picked up at the end, though, and the final showdown and resolution were both very satisfying. Once again, Brockmann provides strong men and women who contribute equally to one another on every level. Ultimately, I'm looking forward to seeing them again as the TS series continues. Plus, there's a bonus short story in the back of the hardcover edition with a little taste of Sam and Alyssa to tide over longtime readers.

Nash & Tess' story.
Was disappointed in this one. I love this author but something was lacking in the character development. The suspence part of the story was good - lots of action and mystery. It was the romance plot. The end was very abrupt and a total character 180 which was hard to believe.
